    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.

    Pastrami sammiches...wait, does that count as 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.

        Chicken pot-pie made from leftover rotisserie chicken. (or just about anything else made from those leftovers...)

          We love Posole with leftover pulled pork. Pork, chicken broth, hominy, chopped green chiles, Rotel, onion, cumin, S & P. Tasty stuff!


            Meatloaf sammies,,,,,made from the nite before MEATLOAF 🤣😂👍👍👍


              Beef pot pie from left over pot roast and my wife makes a killer chicken noodle soup from rotisserie chicken.


                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.

                As I type right now I am heating it up in the microwave here at work for my lunch.

                Smoked Chicken Creamed Sandwiches.

                I cooked / smoked two smallish whole chickens that I cut up on my Weber Kettle yesterday

                Shredded Smoked Chicken
                1 can Cream of Chicken Soup
                A big ole dollop of Sour Cream
                A bit of water
                Pulverized Lays regular Potato Chips

                Serve on Nickles Honey Round Hamburger Rolls


                  Pulled pork nachos using a queso recipe for the cheese. next up at some point in this stay-home will be a Tot-chos version.


                    Beef barley soup made from leftover rib roast and gravy :-)


                      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.

                        The Cool Kettle With The Hinged Hood We Always Wanted

                        Napoleon’s 22″ Pro Cart 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 22″ Pro Cart a viable alternative.

                        Our Favorite Backyard Smoker

                        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.
