MINNEAPOLIS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Banks often offer consumers tips to save money, but how often do they help them save food? Chef Daniel Green and U.S. Bank are joining culinary forces to do just that with money-saving recipes and videos on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and -- for the first time -- Pinterest and Vine.
“We are giving thanks for the many ways our customers and employees give to their families and their communities year after year, and giving back with money-saving recipes through our Leftover Chef series,” said Kelly Colbert, senior vice president and head of social media at U.S. Bank. “We are talking turkey and offering tips on all the ways we can do more with the bounty around the table at this time of year.”
Chef Daniel Green, television celebrity known around the world for his focus on healthy eating, has provided tips and useful ways for families to use pre-cooked leftovers as ingredients in new recipes, discovering fresh flavors without wasting money or food.
- Thai Red Pumpkin Curry – Combine a decorative pumpkin and leftover turkey;
- Black Friday Breakfast Frittata – Made from leftover turkey and potatoes; and
- Egg Fried Rice – Just add any leftover meat and vegetables.
