A Couple Of Fine Breakfasts Meals From Leftovers

We've been doing quite a bit of cooking lately and had leftovers from two recent meals – the Grilled Pork Chops and Root Vegetables and some Posole Ala Lea Ann (No new post for this meal).

I'm not sure how it has happened, but Bev used to cook most of the suppers and I made most of the breakfast meals form leftovers, but somehow this has been reversed.  I think it could be that she is more willing to start working earlier then I am.

For the first breakfast, Bev cut up the leftover chop, made the veggie pieces smaller, added a couple pieces of cooked breakfast sausage and made hash from the pork and root vegetables.

If you read the pork post, you know it was a little sweet and while I still prefer pure savory hash, I thought this was very good especially with a couple of farm fresh runny yolked eggs on top - note that dark color from the the fresh eggs we get from free range chickens.

For the second meal, she drained the leftover posole and turned it into a burrito by rolling in a tortilla and cheese then topping with cheese and salsa.

It was super good, just I expected it would be.  Remember that broth she drained from the posole, no way was all of that good flavor going to waste - I added some crushed crackers and ate it for lunch.

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

  1. No need to waste good food always fun creating new tasty dishes they look very tasty.

  2. Makes my toast for breakfast look rather sad.

  3. Larry, I'm stunned! Bev has become the breakfast 'master chef' in your household? Both breakfasts look great! Take Care, Big Daddy Dave

  4. Love that photo with the runny egg! Great idea for breakfast. And thanks for that link to my posole. And what a great idea for the burrito. I never thought to do that!!! And, smiling at that broth and crackers. Saltines??? Sounds like something Bob would do.

  5. Mmmm. I love hash and eggs. That burrito looks amazing and I bet a yolky egg on top would be tasty too!


I appreciate and enjoy your comments
