What are the worst leftovers? - Page 3

post #61 of 72
Caramelize some onions and peppers, add the sliced peppers, and make a sweet/sour type sauce or a tangy mustard sauce, pour over and serve on a hoagie!

Gosh, and all this time I've just eaten the left-overs cold for breakfast (or lunch) the next day. The worst - - the furry one on the bottom shelf of the 'frige that I obviously didn't like the first time or it would have been on the top shelf. :smiles: Oh, and depending on the left over, the dog may get it added to his kibble for a delicious, nutritious additive to his diet!

Ooh tasty :) Got a big end of college bbq at home coming up this weekend - friends all going their various ways across the planet afterwards. Will more than likely be leftovers so...hey, that can be the hangover breakfast :p

What is a doner kebab??

Think Gyro, on a plate, minus the tzatziki, and extra delicious because of the roasting method for the lamb.

Has anyone mentioned Bubble and Squeak?

Probably one the greatest traditional Great Britain leftover dishes.
All the left over vegetables (carrots, peas, brussel sprouts, turnip etc...) and potatoes from a roast dinner. Mash together and fry the vegetable potato cake. Probably in some sort of grease. Voila!

Though, that is a great leftover and the name of this thread is "worst leftovers"
My vote might be along the lines of leftover sunny eggs. I was trying to think of the worst type of cooked eggs. Sunny with the yolks all dried up and crusty but still runny on the inside.

Oh yum :lol: I suppose if we made a cafeteria-size batch of something, we could mash that up and slip it in with nobody noticing.

Soup_dictator, your user name makes me think of some of the things that make the best leftovers imo--broth made from leftover veges and meats, and some soups and stews rewarmed the next day.

I've got several containers in my freezer of potential ravioli/pasty/empanada fillings. In other words, mashed-up bits of meat, sauce, vegs that will someday go inside dough to live again. :lol: Sometimes when I've brought my mini empanadas to a party, people go nuts over them. Little do they know . . . :p

I like haggis. :thumb: But I've never had it at home. I imagine if I had leftover, I'd treat it the same as polenta/cornmeal mush/grits: let it solidify in the fridge, slice, coat the slices with flour, then sauté to crisp them up. Sch. . . oops, Scottish scrapple!

Those eggs? Cut in thin strips and add to fried rice, along with the other bits and pieces. After all, fried rice absolutely requires leftover, cold rice! The starch on the outside of the grains needs to firm up, otherwise you get fried moosh. I know; I've made that mistake. :mad:

And leftover pasta? Unsauced, it can be the basis of a frittata. Lasagna and the like: that's not left over, that's breakfast!

Doesn't anyone else remember the Christine Lavin song, "Cold Pizza for Breakfast"?

If leftovers can't be used as an ingredient for soup they can probably be used in the stock.
A lot of people see leftovers as garbage but a Saucier sees a gold mine for flavour. Toss them in the big pot to simmer over night with the bones. Not everything can be used in stock though, especially the gaseous green vegetables like cabbage and broccoli. pwew.
