    What is your favorite dish made from leftovers of a different dish?

    I sometimes like using leftovers from one dish to make a new dish. Today I made cheese steak sandwiches from leftover mushroom steaks. When we have roast beef we sometimes get a twofer by grinding the roast and making beef salad sandwiches and the mashed potatoes become potato cakes. Unless of course there's enough gravy to finish off the potatoes.

    Since we no longer have a teenage boy in the house there is actually leftovers to work with from most meals these days. Let me know your favorites. I could use some new ideas for leftovers.

      Brisket chili. Great way to use up any leftover bits and pieces. I will usually cook a briskets a couple pounds larger than I need just so I have enough for the chili.

        Double smoked spiral cut ham for Easter (Sunday, Monday). Ham and Provolone on rye sandwiches (Wed and Thurs ). Ham and cheese omelet (Sat morning ) and Hambone soup w/ beans ( Sun and maybe Mon ). Will freeze leftovers with food saver and save for the travel trailer this summer, providing they open up travel to us. Please all be safe.

          We grind into ham salad also. I do love ham salad.

                Take anything left over, put it in a tortilla, add black beans, a little sauce and whatever else you have, and heat.

                  Oh yeah!! Just the other night we did tacos with left over tri-tip, tomahawk ribeye and BBQ spareribs. One of the best meals we've had in awhile. Everything was devoured.

                      We do a lot of left overs. One of my favorites, though we don't get to do it very often, is beef stroganoff with left over tri-tip. Leftover TT usually gets made into tacos.

                        In the winter anything left over potpie. In the summer anything leftover is ground and made into spread.

                        Placeholder

                        The Slow 'N' Sear turns your grill into a first class smoker and also creates an extremely hot sear zone you can use to create steakhouse steaks.

                        Placeholder

                        The Good-One Open Range is dramatically different from a traditional offset smoker. By placing the heat source behind and under the smokebox instead of off to the side, Open Range produces even temperature from left to right, something almost impossible to achieve with a standard barrel shaped offset.

Four-way venting means it's easy to set up for two zone cooking with more control than single vent Kamado grills. It is beautifully designed, completely portable, and much easier to set up for 2-zone cooking than any round kamado.

                        The amazing Karubecue is the most innovative smoker in the world. The quality of meat from this machine is astonishing. At its crux is a patented firebox that burns logs above the cooking chamber and sucks heat and extremely clean blue smoke into the thermostat controlled oven. It is our favorite smoker, period.

                        This is the first propane smoker with a thermostat, making this baby foolproof. Set ThermoTemp's dial from 175° to 350°F and the thermostat inside will adjust the burner just like an indoor kitchen oven. All you need to do is add wood to the tray above the burner to start smokin'.

                        Napoleon's NK22CK-C Charcoal Kettle Grill puts a few spins on the familiar kettle design. In fact, the hinged lid with a handle on the front, spins in a rotary motion 180 degrees. It's hard to beat a Weber kettle, but Napoleon holds its own and adds some unique features to make the NK22CK-C a viable alternative.

                        Green Mountain's portable Davy Crockett Pellet Smoker is one mean tailgating and picnic machine. But it's also gaining popularity with people who want to add a small, set it and forget it pellet smoker to their backyard arsenal. And with their WiFi capabilities you can control and monitor Davy Crocket from your smart phone or laptop.
