One of the biggest things people search after Thanksgiving is how to use canned cranberry sauce. Why? Because it’s always so cheap around the holidays, that you can’t help but stock up on it. But, once you have 10 cans of cranberry sauce in your pantry, what do you do with it? I have some ideas for you.
Ways To Use Canned Cranberry Sauce
You don’t have to eat your canned cranberry sauce until the end of time. It can be doctored into some of the most delicious things you’ve ever had.
Use It In Pie
One year, I was determined to figure out how to use canned cranberry sauce in a new pie. I stumbled upon the idea to use 3 different versions of cranberries in one pie, and the Triple Cranberry Pie was born. It’s, to this day, one of our favorite things to eat for the holidays. It’s not too tart or too sweet, and the canned cranberry sauce gives the pie the perfect balance.
Oh, and don’t forget about a slab pie! Cran-apple Slab Pie was basically created because I need to bring a dessert to Thanksgiving dinner, and I was lazy about it. If you’re lazy about making desserts, this pie is perfect for you.
Use It To Make A No-Bake Holiday Treat
No-bake treats are my jam. I mean, I love to bake, but if I can make a no-bake item and have my kids eat it up, I feel like a rockstar. This Cranberry Ritz Bars recipe is extremely easy, and so, so good.
Use It To Make A Bundt Cake
I like big bundts, and I cannot lie. A bundt cake around the holidays is just meant to be, and this Cranberry Almond Bundt Cake is one of the easiest recipes we have on the website. Once it’s cooled, sprinkle it with powdered sugar, and call it your Winterland cake. You’ll be the talk of the holiday potluck event.
Use It To Make Cranberry Hot Wings
OK, this is the weirdest yet most amazing way to use canned cranberry sauce. Cranberry Hot Wings are a big deal in our home, especially around the time of The Big Game. The mixture of hot sauce, butter, and cranberry sauce on these juicy chicken wings, makes a hot wing flavor you never thought you’d love. BONUS: these are baked, not fried.
