9 Ways To Turn Freezer Leftovers Into Fabulous Dishes


Frozen peas are one of the most popular freezer ingredients – they're great when used as a side, added to an omelette, pasta or risotto, or puréed for a soup.

French fries

Take that half-used bag of French fries to the next level. Once you've baked them, drizzle over some truffle or chilli oil.

Pizza dough

Making a great pizza topping at home is pretty straightforward – you just need tomato passata, cheese, pepperoni.

Puff pastry

Use up your frozen puff pastry in an indulgent Italian pie. This recipe also puts any leftover cheese and ham you have in the fridge to great use.

Pearl/button onions

These little onions are rather a pain to peel if you buy them fresh, so they're a great ingredient for the freezer.


It really doesn't matter what kind of bread you have in the freezer – whether it's sourdough, wholemeal or white – an Italian bread salad.


You could add a few handfuls of frozen blueberries to your breakfast smoothie, or cook and purée them as an indulgent sauce for a cheesecake.

Fish fingers

Even if you don't have enough fish fingers to serve as a main meal, you can bulk them out for a great lunch with these tips.

Green beans

The dish is also a great way to use up any polenta/cornmeal that's lingering at the back of the cupboard.
