10 Simple Ways to Use Leftover Cranberry Sauce

This year was the first time I tried making my own cranberry sauce (see yesterday's recipe).  It was so easy, I can't believe I never considered making it at home before.  But whether I craft my own or buy a can, I always seem to have a lot of cranberry sauce remaining after the big meal.  To use the leftover cranberry sauce that remains, I came up with 10 ideas:

Pecan-Topped Cranberry Oatmeal
  1. Oatmeal + cranberry sauce =  Cranberry Oatmeal
  2. Crepes + cranberry sauce =  Cranberry Filling (thinned with maple syrup)
  3. Applesauce + cranberry sauce =  Cranberry Applesauce
  4. Apple crisp or apple pie + cranberry sauce =  Cran-Apple Dessert
  5. Sandwiches + cranberry sauce =  Cranberries as Condiment
  6. Salad dressing + cranberry sauce =  Cranberry Vinagrette (this recipe looks very good)
  7. Cream cheese + cranberry sauce =  Creamy Cranberry Spread
  8. Toast or bagels+ cranberry sauce =  Cranberry Jam/ Jelly
  9. Barbecue sauce + cranberry sauce =  BBQ with a Twist (this simple recipe blends BBQ sauce with cranberry)
  10. Hot apple cider + cranberry sauce =  Cranberry Spiced Cider

Great ideas, but I rarely leave any for leftovers :)

Mmmmm, yummy! Too bad I can't get cranberries cheaply around here, or I'd be making that!
