If you're drowning in a sea of turkey, stuffing and roast potatoes it's time to get creative.

We've all been there. You end up cooking a giant dinosaur turkey with a bucket load of vegetables on Christmas morning and then have to deal with the almost unbearably large pile of leftovers.

There's nothing exciting about a plate of cooked carrots and some random slices of turkey, so you're going to need to rustle up something up with some killer recipes.

These bad boys will definitely make Boxing Day meals more exciting (just don't eclipse your star-of-the-show Christmas lunch!).
