Turkey and pigs in blankets, southern fried waffle, sage and shallot kimchi, cranberry and chilli butter sauce

Today I deep fried a waffle.Ā After the gluttony of Christmas Day and all that leftover turkey, I just wanted to eat Korean food and fried chicken. Not that deep fried waffles are either of those. It made sense to me at the time.


So here’s my anti-bland leftovers usage slash post-xmas calorie top up.


My southern fried dredge was buttermilk then flour seasoned with salt, pepper and cinnamon. My ‘homemade’ kimchi was shallots and sage plunged overnight in leftover kimchi juice. My sauce was gochujang, leftover cranberry sauce and melted butter. My leftover bird was dry, fairly flavourless and needed as much help as it could get.
