Favorite leftover uses

I love making things out of leftovers... It makes me think I am not wasting as much. My children are 1, 3, 5, and 10. Between them all, they really go back and forth on their portions, so while I try to make just what we need, sometimes I end up with 3 full servings leftover.

    I love making things out of leftovers... It makes me think I am not

    wasting as much.

    My children are 1, 3, 5, and 10. Between them all, they really go

    back and forth on their portions, so while I try to make just what we

    need, sometimes I end up with 3 full servings leftover.



    Some of the things I reuse in creative ways are, squished up

    enchilladas as nacho toppings for lunch (sounds kind of gross but soo

    yummy with the chips and added cheese), chicken and rice to fry up in

    tortillas for lunchwraps, chicken in mayo for sandwhiches, rice and

    gravy for a quick haystacks (I usually add a leftover meat on the

    side with this), when I have a lot of spaghetti I put it in a glass

    dish and add chedder cheese to the top and reheat it in the oven for

    a fast spaghetti casserole.



    If anyone else has any suggestions for leftovers, please feel free to

    add them to the list. My kids really dig their heals in about eating

    leftovers just as leftovers sometimes, so the more ways I have to

    spruce things up, the better.



    I would love some ideas for reusing meatloaf, pork chops, and beef

    roast.

    My 5 kids ages 5, 6, 8, 10, & 11 will eat meatloaf sandwiches,you can either just eat it cold, heat in microwave or fry up in a pan use mayo, ketchup or what ever you like. Same with the pork and beef warm or cold on sandwiches we add bbq sauce mix it and warm it up they make awesome bbq sandwiches or fry the meat and melt cheese over they would be on the idea of a steak and cheese sub. My kids love the Ramen noodle soup we buy the 6 pk of the noodles and flavor pouches not the cup ones. you can get a 6 pk for $1 we either drain most of the water out than add the seasoning pack and than the meat or leave it like soup and still add the meat.

    Meatloaf sandwiches. Breakfast biscuits. Cube it and use it as meatballs in

    your favorite recipes. Swedish meatballs, sweet & sour meatballs, etc.



    Pork chops can have the meat cut off the bone. Use it in scalloped potatoes,

    add to beans and bean soups. Jambalaya and gumbo. If its just a spoonful or

    two, freeze it and use it later.



    Roast can be sliced and served with gravy over noodles. Fake Stroganoff.

    Sandwiches. Jambalaya, gumbo, as a flavoring for soup.

    Christine, if your kids will eat rice, you can make

    Chinese congee. This is like a "rice soup" with cut

    up veggies, meat, etc. in it. You can season it up

    and it's a meal. Two of our daughters are Chinese and

    our kids eat it (AND Ramen noodles) all the time!

    No one asked about uses for leftovers w/chicken, but one of our favorites is to takeleftover chicken and dumplings, thicken the broth a bit, add some mixed cooked veggies (can also be recycled left overs) and put a crust on it- Home Made Chicken Pot Pie! Lisa G.
