Now that the holidays are upon us, an abundance of food seems to be on hand at every turn, and it’s so important to try our best not to waste. We’ve partnered with Kroger for their Zero Hunger Zero Waste Initiative this holiday season to show you how to use the food you have so that less goes to waste. There is so much hunger in our communities, and a way my family gives back is simply by giving. We buy one food item for our fam and grab one for the food bank. This is a practice we utilize throughout the year, but it’s particularly important during the holidays.
With so many gatherings in our homes and those of loved ones, there can be so much leftover turkey or ham or roast beef! I want to show you guys a great way to use up the leftover meats, cheeses, and rolls to elevate that sandwich game. A quick trip in the oven makes these sliders crispy on top and tender with melty cheese on the inside! The really great thing about this recipe is that you most likely have everything you need in your home right now to make it. This recipe can easily be adapted to use any leftover roasted meats or cheeses from your charcuterie boards. Throw some salami and pickles on top with a nice smear of mayo! Always remember, no matter what you have, it’s important to possess a giving heart, to teach your children to give, and to try as much as possible not to waste. #zerowastezerohunger #kroger
