    Do you make meals with 'left-overs'?  What are some of your favorite left over dishes?

    For example, we make 'bubble and squeak' with left over potatoes and greens.  We mix them together and fry them flattened in the pan till they are brown on both sides.  Great with an egg on the top!

    I make an "everthing" soup. Take whatever meat there is and add onion and garlic, tomatoes, veges, rice or pasta and whatever else will mix well with it. It always comes out delicious.

    My favorite leftover recipe is for the Thanksgiving or any turkey. I got this recipe from Emerill. You boil the turkey, adding seasonings 'til it comes off the bone.  This makes a 'stock' which you can use as the base of soups, sauces. Then remove all bones and set the meat aside. Starting with a few cups of the stock (I use 8 cups because I make a big pot of soup), you cut up and cook carrots, celery, potatoes, anything you like in soup. Reintroduce the meat at the end.  At the very end, I usually add uncooked noodles or rice. Voila, chicken 'n rice soup, chicken noodle soup.

    We like 'bubble and squeak'.  It's an English favorite, usually made after the Sunday lunch roast meat lunch.
    Its made with cabbage left overs (or sprouts) and potato left overs.
    You mix them up and bind them with an egg, some white pepper.
    In a frying pan you heat some fat from the roast, or butter, and you put the cabbage and potato mix in to fry crispy and brown on both sides!
    It is to die for.
    Next time you make a roast meal, make extra of the two so you can make bubble and squeak.
    It's fantastic with a couple of fried eggs on top.  Yes, and ketchup.
