    Default Leftover breakfast casserole

    Not enough leftovers for the next night? Since you liked the ingredients, why not make a breakfast casserole.

    Shred the meat left from dinner
    add potatoes or rice
    if you had veggies left, chop/mince and mix all ingredients with 4-6 eggs, scrambled (depending on the quantity of your leftovers)
    Sprinkle shredded cheese over the top if desired.

    Place in casserole or 9 x 11 inch pan and bake until egg is set.

    Cut and serve hot, for breakfast. Can also be used as a quiche-type lunch.

    this sounds like a great idea. it would be one way to use leftovers and the kids not realize it.

    I love 'remaking' leftovers...quiche/fritatta/breakfast bake is a go-to for me that doesn't require much thought.

    Another idea: if you have leftover rice, instead of mixing it in, make a crust: mix the rice with an egg or two, season a little if desired, and pat into a pie pan or casserole. I like to par-bake it. (Maybe 10 min at 350F?)

    i love leftovers, especially for lunch the next day. most food is better the next day than the day it was made.

    This is VERY true of dishes like soups and stews...chili is SOOOO much better the next day...even spaghetti is better the next day. I guess the time in the fridge gives it even more time for the flavors to incorporate and concentrate...
