Tag Archive: Leftovers


3-4 lb. London Broil

1 c. barbecue sauce (homemade or bottle – I used Sweet Baby Rays)

1/2 sweet onion, coarsely chopped

1/2 green pepper, coarsely chopped

1/2 yellow pepper, coarsely chopped

1/2 red pepper, coarsely chopped

1 Tbsp. garlic

1 can garbanzo beans

1 can cannelloni beans

1/2 c. leftover corn and black bean salad from yesterday’s Little Big Meal

1/4 c. seasoned bread crumbs


Finely chopped sweet onion and green onion

Defrosted frozen peas

Shredded cheese

Hot sauce

Sour cream

Marinade meat in barbecue sauce mixed with peppers, onions, and garlic at least 20 minutes or overnight.

Place in crockpot on low and cook 8-10 hours.  The meat will shred easily.

Add in beans, leftover corn and black bean salad and bread crumbs.  Continue to cook until the rice is done.

I am sold on using a rice cooker now.  So easy.  I added in butter and garlic in tonight’s rice.  I also toasted up some garlic toast.

My kids said if they had this in a restaurant, they would go back there!



Leftover Scalloped Potatoes (you need enough to make a layer in the bottom of an 13 x 9 baking dish)

1 Tbsp. chopped jalapenos (optional – heat up according to taste and how hot the sausage is)

1 lb. sausage, cooked and crumbled (or sliced)

6 eggs

1 C. baking mix (I used Bisquick Gluten Free)

2 C. milk (I used unsweetened coconut milk)

1 C. shredded cheese  ( I used Italian six cheese)

Spray 13 x 9 baking dish.

Preheat oven to 350F.

Layer potatoes in bottom of dish.


Top with sausage.  Then with cheese


Combine baking mix, eggs and milk.

Pour into baking dish.


Cover and refrigerate overnight for best results.  (This will still work if you do it right away, but is a little drier and less creamy that way for some reason.

Gluten Free Turkey Quesadillas

1 package Gluten free tortillas

2 c. shredded leftover turkey mixed with leftover turkey chili
1-2 c. shredded Mexican cheese
Sour cream and salsa for garnish/dipping

Heat turkey/chili mixture.

Place tortilla in heated pan. Warm through and flip.


Top with cheese, then chili, then cheese. You may have to remove it from the heat while layering so the bottom tortilla doesn’t over cook.


Top with another tortilla and carefully flip over to cook the other side.

Cut using a pizza cutter and top with sour cream and salsa to taste.


A little chopped fresh cilantro would have made it prettier. (which I should’ve bought when it was on sale the other day!)

As turkey leftover use goes, this was one of our favorites 🙂

Franks and beans

1/2 C. leftover sauce (I used leftover apricot chipolte sauce from the pork chops)
2 cans navy beans
6 leftover hot dogs

Thinly slice hot dogs. Mix with sauce and drained beans. Cook until thickened. You may need to add some corn starch if it’s still too liquid.


I had all this sauce leftover, and didn’t want it to go to waste!!


I always buy canned beans when they are on sale.


Franks and beans was always my dad’s favorite.  Such an easy guy to please!

Empty the Frig Chili

Leftover pork ribs (from yesterday’s recipe)- I cut it up in tiny bite-size pieces
Leftover Jamaican beef patty filling (from a few days ago!)
2 c. fresh salsa
1 can corn kernels (drained)
1 can chick peas (reserving some to put on top)
1 can navy beans
1 can canneloni beans
1 can black beans
1 can diced tomatoes with chilis

Combine in crock pot and cook on low 6-8 hours.

This was a HUGE HIT. Definitely a case of the leftovers being more of a family favorite than the original (pork ribs) recipe.

We ate it over rice and had a salad on the side.

Everyone raved. Of course! It will be next to impossible to duplicate. It just goes to show, though, that good ingredients make a good finished product!
