Not just in my food blogging life, but also throughout my life, leftovers have been the equivalent of a drive through the fast food window, but without the guilt, or that back of the mind question wondering "what was really in that burger?"
A gourmet gimmie.
Healthy, fresh leftover ingredients that come together quickly, allowing that ultimate moment of peace, knowing the dishwasher is empty and the counters are wiped down for the night. Pure foodie bliss.
Not only do I love creating new and flavorful dishes on night 2, but some of my recipes are down right dependent on it!
Still not believing me? How about my Asian Fusion Dumplings from grilled tri tip? Roast Pork with Leeks, Peas and Rice from a pork tenderloin. Or one of my favorite things of all time... Hot Browns with Tarragon from a roasted turkey (is it November yet?)
And now, this lovely frittata, so full of flavor that you'll be pulling out your crock pot more this year, then you did in all of the 70's. Last night, I took leftover BBQ Country Pork Ribs and my Mustard Thyme Roasted Baby Potatoes from the night before, and in no time, I had a fresh and hearty meal on the table. And, can I just say it again... with just one pan to wash! Oh yea.
