Some Pretty Good leftovers

We had a steak left from Bev’s supper the other night along with some par-boiled potatoes so we had them for breakfast.  I cut the steak in have cross-grain to make two breakfast steaks and grilled them after the potatoes had cooked awhile on the side burner.  I opted for scrambled eggs for this meal, also cooked on the side burner, while the potatoes finished on the grill.

After our meal of Chicken with Lemon and Olives, Bev decided to turn the leftovers into a tangy pizza.  She thickened the leftover sauce with some cornstarch then tossed in the two chopped up thighs that were remaining just to warm them a little.

The crust was a piece of Naan bread brushed with a little olive oil then topped with sliced tomato, the chicken mix, sliced onion, red pepper flakes, and fresh mozzarella.

She sided it with a salad using our greens, some fresh picked strawberries (thanks to neighbor Pat), shredded gruyere, and the poppy seed dressing we’ve been using lately.

We’d recently made some Spanish rice and had enough for one more dish and I told Bev she could just nuke it for me for breakfast, but she did this instead.

She is the breakfast burrito queen and it contained the rice,??? And was topped with cheese, lettuce, diced tomatoes, sour cream.

The meals were all very good and made great use of the leftovers.

Have a great day and thanks for stopping by Almost Heaven South.

  1. I love your left overs posts Larry. I'm bad about left overs (something I'm working on) and your posts really help me see new meals in what I have already cooked. Everything looks great and I wish I had that burrito right now!

  2. Larry, We have reached the point where we use about 100% of our leftovers...but we just don't have the immagination that you and Bev do when it comes to creating something special from what's just lying around. Take Care,Big Daddy Dave

  3. Leftovers are an art unto themselves, aren't they?

  4. You always make the most of your leftovers - I love it!! I love the pizza...and using naan bread is one of the best ways to make quick personal pizzas - at least that's what I think :)

  5. I have got to get better with my leftovers! You and Bev do a great job with it! I just can't figure out what to do with them.

  6. I love leftovers, but usually just have them in their original meal state, warmed up You two are so creative. I'll take the burrito please.


I appreciate and enjoy your comments
