Recipes for Leftover Christmas Ham, Turkey, and Roast Beef

When the holidays draw near, it's probably inevtiable that you're going to attend a host of parties, and maybe even throw one or two yourself. If you're in charge of a big celebratory dinner, more than likely, you've chosen an impressive hunk of meat as your centerpiece (unless, of course, you're vegan or vegetarian, in which case cauliflower is a shockingly great choice for holiday party dishes). Whether you roast a turkey for Thanksgiving, bake a ham or make a standing rib roast for Christmas, or braise brisket for Hanukkah, you'll most likely end up with plenty of leftovers. You can always turn them into delicious sandwiches, but if you're looking for something a bit more inspired, try one of these transformative recipes instead.

For instance, that leftover ham bone is transformed into the most delicious, slowly simmered crockpot comfort soup.
