Hot Cross Bun Waffles (!) and More Meals To Make From Easter Leftovers

March 28, 2016

It was serendipitous (or rather, very planned) that we released our new new app (Not)Recipes the week before Easter, a holiday associated with the springy-new and feast-worthy. And boy did you turn out—all day long, we kept going back to see more.

Psst: If you haven't downloaded the app yet, right this way.

Hot cross bun French toast waffle. I just soaked a gr cross bun in splash of milk and an egg then put it in a waffle iron!

But the thing that really caught our eye was checking out your leftover game, because, look, how do you beat an Easter classic-turned-French-toast waffle (see above)? It was one of the best things we saw on the app using Easter leftover—but there are plenty of runners-up worth committing to memory:

Easter eggs (finely diced), chopped chives, Dijon mustard, mayonnaise, salt and pepper, folded and mixed to combine. Slap on some super toasted sliced bread with arugula and prosciutto!

And ham biscuit sandwiches galore:

Leftover Easter ham + Swiss scraps + skillet of homemade buttermilk biscuits. (Melt a stick of butter in a cast-iron skillet at 425. Meanwhile, use your hands to mix self-raising flour with just enough buttermilk to form a dough. Pat out, cut into circles with a juice glass. Dip each in the melted butter and arrange in skillet. Bake until done. Also amazing with honey on top. ??) #biscuits #buttermilk #ham #leftovers

Deviled Eggs inspired by Bouchon. Fried capers are the perfect addition to the classic
