The Challenge Question is :when we prepare meals for our families we often choose a meal that we can extend to the next day (aka leftovers!) hit the reply button & share your left over layering meal ideas below. include the first day main meal & what you transform the leftovers into on the 2nd (& 3rd day!)
Here’s an Example:
One of our families favorite dishes is Moms Homemade Meatloaf. When Making the dish, I’ll frequently make 2-3 and freeze one for later using my foodsaver vacuum system. It doesn’t take any extra time to double or triple the batch and then I have meal ready to go when I’m in a hurry due to sports, late night at work, etc.Meal 1: The First Night we’ll have Meatloaf, Mashed Potatoes and Gravy.
Meal 2: Meatloaf Sandwiches
Meal 3: If there’s any meatloaf left, I’ll cut it into cubes and add it to spaghetti sauce for Spaghetti & Meatballs.
Wondering How to Play? hit the reply button and answer the challenge question! (seriously, that’s it)

Day 2 is chicken salad sandwiches or on a green salad
Day 3 is chicken pot pie , using all the leftover chicken, veggies and gravy , topped with a crust or if I have leftover biscuits, they go on top. Or how about some chicken noodle soup? use chicken, carrots , add noodles and broth, and if there’s gravy left over?

Chicken enchiladas, bbq chicken sandwiches, and chicken machaca
- November 9, 2014 at 2:49 pm #459266lucygooseA big pot of pinto beans goes a long way at our house.
I start out with the beans, served with rice, cornbread, and fried potatoes with onions.
Day two, if we don’t just eat the same yumminess we had on day one, I “refry” some of the beans and we have burritos, also using leftover fried potatoes
Day three, if any beans are left, I put them in chili and have the leftover cornbread and tortillas from days one and two.
Any leftover chili gets frozen for Frito chili pie at a later time.
The beans can also be frozen after the first meal if you’re not in the mood for burritos or chili.
- November 9, 2014 at 2:50 pm #459267Madiks
1. Roast beef with mashed potatoes and gravy, a green vegetable and salad
2. Chop or shred leftover roast beef and add enchilada seasoning and make beef enchilada casserole with refried beans and Mex rice
Use leftover seasoned beef to make tacos or taco salad, served with leftover beans and rice.
I would not necessarily serve these meals within 3 days, that is why I need to win the food saver so I can freeze and serve later.
- November 9, 2014 at 2:56 pm #459269BonAsherLeft-over beef pot roast prepared in the slow cooker is used for beef stroganoff for one meal, and then it is chopped or shredded, gravy added, vegetables (often times small portions of left-over veggies) added to make beef stew. The stew usually manages to provided a couple of meals since there are only the two of us.

We’re not vegetarian but we are trying to find meatless ways to eat on a budget because we really cant afford the prices of meat lately.
Here’s our Leftover Layering, premeditated plan1. Cook a Giant Pot of Lentils
2. Lentil Avocado Salad
Seared lentil Burgers
4. Lentil Enchiladas w/ Bechamel Sauce
First, cook a big batch of lentils
2 ½ cups French green lentils (rinsed & picked over)
6 cups water (or to cover by about 2 inches
½ teaspoon salt
1 bay leaf, optionalDon’t skip rinsing and picking over the lentils, I promise you that a broken tooth from an accidental stone is a lot more expensive than you think!
Put the lentils in a big stock pot and cover with water. Add salt and the bay leaf, bring it to a boil, then reduce it and simmer about 45 minutes. Don’t overcook them, you want them tender, but not mushy.
After all, no one wants a mushy salad! Let them Cool Completely, Drain them and remove the bay leaf. Stick them in the fridge until you need them.
For the Salad:Preserved lemon peel, approximately 1 tablepsoon or equal to ½ of a lemon, fruit and peel (no seeds)
1 cup fresh parsley
2 to 4 cloves garlic
½ cup olive oil
Combine the ingredients, blitz and then pour over cooked lentils.
Top with Fresh diced avocado! YUM.
For Seared Lentil Burgers:
In a food processor blitz the following together just until combined:
1 cup fully cooked lentils, well-drained
2 slices bread (small) or 1 large piece of sandwich bread
1/2 cup coarsely chopped onion or leek
about 4 sprigs fresh flat leaf parsley, minced
1 to 2 fresh green onions
2 cloves garlic
1 teaspoon cumin
1/2 teaspoon ground coriander
1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes
1 tablespoons olive oil
1/2 teaspoon salt
Form into patties, fry in hot oil. Serve on burger buns with fresh sliced tomato, onions, pickled peppers, etc.Lentil Enchiladas
For the filling, you will need:
4 cups cooked lentils
Zest of one orange
1 9-ounce box of spinach, kale or other mixed greens (6 to 8 cups, loosely packed)
2 tablespoons olive oil
½ cup diced onion or leeks
1 medium or 2 or 3 small zucchini (washed, diced)
Approximately 8 ounces of boursin-pepper cheese, or pepper goat cheese
12 to 14 medium size (fajita size – 6 to 8-inches) flour tortillas
heat the oil in a skillet, add the onions, saute until translucent. Add the zucchini, saute until tender, add the greens, saute until lightly wilted, add the orange zest.
Assemble enchiladas- scoop of cooked lentils, scoop of sauteed vegetables, sprinkle of cheese.Repeat until 9×13 baking dish is full. Cover with cheese over top, then drizzle with Bechamel sauce.
Bake at 350 for 35-40 minutes.
For the béchamel sauce, you will need:
5 tablespoons butter
1/3 cup all-purpose flour
4 cups milk
1 1/2 teaspoons kosher salt
1 ½ teaspoons fresh ground black pepper
¼ teaspoon nutmeg
1 large egg, beaten (optional)
In a saucepan melt butter, whisk in flour, salt and pepper, cook for 3 minutes. Add half the milk, whisking to ensure no lumps, add rest of the milk, add nutmeg, simmer about 7-8 minutes until nice and thick. Temper the egg in a dish on the side, then add it to the sauce, cook another couple of mintues.
- November 9, 2014 at 3:22 pm #459273brlrcr314My first meal is baked chicken with potatoes, carrots, onions and celery.
Second meal is chicken potpie (only need grands biscuits and gravy)
Third meal is chicken tacos (Only need tortillas and cheese)Fourth meal (since it is just my husband and I now) usually there is enough fat and meat around the bones to boil up for a small pot of chicken soup. (Need to add a few more vegetables)
And the left over tortillas i coat them with a small amount of butter and shredded cheese to make grill cheese sandwich to go along with the soup.

There are many meals I make from leftovers from an Oven Roasted Chicken with vegetables. This chicken creates a yummy chicken stock that can be used with many meals and there is always leftover chicken and vegetables. I never toss leftovers they are way better the next day.I usually make a dish for supper or lunch the next day and freeze the rest of the chicken for other meals. If I didn’t freeze the chicken we would be eating chicken for a week since there are only the two of us now.
Meal 1: Oven Roasted Chicken with potatoes, carrots, celery and onions
Meal 2: Cream of Chicken and Biscuits I use some of the stock to make a gravy for the cream of chicken and chop up some of the chicken and leftover vegetables. I put this in a casserole dish and add drop biscuits on top and bake.
Meal 3: Chicken Dijon using some of the stock and cubed chicken and with egg noodles best with homemade noodles
Meals 4: Chicken Salad for lunch
Meal 5: Caesars Salad

Pot Roast turned Beef Stew
Meal 1: Pot roast (roast, carrots, potatoes, celery, onion)
Meal 2: Beef Stew- pull the leftover roast into small pieces, cut the vegetables into smaller bite sized pieces, put it all in a pot (including all of the leftover juice) add additional carrots and/or potatoes if there’s not much left. Gradually add flour (or instant potatoes) to thicken, salt and pepper to taste. I grew up knowing every time we had pot roast, the next night would be the best stew ever!

My layering go to is pork (or chicken tacos) the first night I cook pork roast. (Boneless roast , 2 tbsp of oil, minced rosemary, cracked pepper, mix in small bowl let sit for at least thirty minutes , I actually use this as my favorite infused oil) salt roast with kosher salt and rub oil over entire roast. Place 2 large carrots 1 small onion and 3 or four leave celery stalks in roasting pan, place roast directly on veggies.
Add 1/2 cup of wine ( what ever is open) or chicken stock. Bake at 350 for 38 minutes per pound (for medium) let stand for 10 minutes. Strain and reserve juices for next day!
Pork tacos, slice pork and put in sauce pan add pan juices and chicken stock to just cover pork, add diced onion and minced garlic.1 tsp of ground oregano per cup of meat. (I add cumin and sometimes a coule of tablespoons of packaged taco seasoning) to mine to taste. Let simmer until pork pulls apart with two forks.
Drain meat reserving stock, pull pork and return to pan, add enough stock to be really juicy ( just so you can see some liquid) add in 1/2 fine diced onion and chopped cilantro, bring to a boil and turn to low simmer.
in a seperate bowl mix two tbsp of left over stock with 1 tsp if corn starch and temper with hot stock from your saucepan. Add to meat and summer till thickened. You may need to add more thickener if you have lots of meat.
You want it just thick enough to stick to the meat. Serve with your favorite taco fixings. To use left overs add a little more of the stock to loosen the meat.Serve on tostado shells ( a very small amount of pork goes a long way)with refried beans. 1 roast 3 meals! I also make this with left over chicken!

Meal 2: I use the leftover beef in tacos served with mexican rice and mexicorn.

- November 10, 2014 at 2:14 pm #459336brchbellRoast chicken the first night, followed by Chicken Pot Pie the next night and Chicken Noodle soup the 3rd night. If I get a big enough chicken I can slip a 4th meal of Chicken Enchiladas or chicken & biscuit casserole in too! My kids always loved having left over mashed potatoes so we could make Potato pancakes with them the next morning.
Leftover chicken gravy gets added into the chicken pot pie. I cover the chicken bones with water and some spices and veggies and simmer to get my own broth for the soup. I get every little bit out of the chicken.
The carrots and celery,etc that get cooked with the broth get diced up and added to the soup.
- November 10, 2014 at 2:47 pm #459290peg2012meal 1 spaghetti and noodles
Left overs I dived and freeze for lunches for work, some times I can get 2 to 3 lunches out of left overs for work.
