Everyone cringes when you mention leftovers for dinner. That doesn't have to be. In fact last night's meal can be transformed into something special. All you need is some creativity to reinvent that pot roast or roast turkey.
Sometimes it just takes a sprinkle of something to give a tired dish oomph. Try sprinkling toasted bread crumbs on last night pasta for a different spin. This also works on leftover baked mac(although with this you can also try crumbled bacon)Pot pies are a wonderful way to get rid of both leftover roasts and veggies. You can take those extra peas and carrots and add them with cubed roast beef , turkey or chicken to a homemade pot pie. Finish with an phyllo dough crust.
Sandwiches are an easy no brainer way to use up leftovers. There's nothing like a thickly piled turkey or roast beef sandwich covered in gravy and perched atop a slice of bread. You can also make tasty sandwiches out of pot roast and meat loaf too. Some people are into spaghetti sandwiches where they take heated up pasta and layer it on plain white bread. Strange but true.
Leftovers needn't be bland. You can reinvent them into tasty dishes for your family.It just takes a bit of reheating and a bit of creativity.
