Easy to make recipes for leftover ham, pumpkin pie and mac and cheese after holidays

Here's how to avoid getting bored of the leftovers
CHICAGO (WLS) -- Christmas dinner leftovers can be tiring after a while.

Chef Rebekah Ziesmer with Conagra Brands shares recipes using those holiday dinner leftovers in creative ways.

Ziesmer demonstrated how to make Pumpkin Pecan Oatmeal Casserole, Macaroni & Cheese Bombs and Crustless Ham & Cheese Mini Quiches.

The quiches are great for leftover ham. Just mix together eggs, ham, cheese and some vegetables and pour them into a muffin pan.

The oatmeal recipe can be a good way to use leftover pumpkin pie, Ziesmer said.
