Easy Carrot and Potato Leftover Loaf

This is an easy recipe to make on a busy weekday especially if you have leftover roasted veg and meat from your Sunday Roast dinner.  You can keep the recipe as a vegetarian dish or add in leftover roast meat as well.  In this case, I have used leftover turkey meat from my Christmas meal and boiled potatoes and carrots.  This recipe was given to me by my mum, when I was struggling to feed my daughter who was about 2 years old and sometimes being fussy with food.  Now, I make this whenever I need a light lunch/dinner for the whole family.  Add in extra milk, if you want a softer loaf. Keep on reading to find out how to make this vegetarian/vegetable and meat loaf and feel free to print out a printable recipe to add to your collection.

Yum! This looks so easy to make. I have a bunch of leftover ham from Christmas. I’m wondering if it would taste okay in this??

This would be super handy for leftover veg as we always end up with more carrots and potatoes than we need! x
