Whether it’s holiday meals or other situations where you have lots of leftovers - what are your most creative / favorite ways to repurpose them?
Yes sandwiches, salads, pot pies, casseroles, soups. But what’s a little further from recognizable?
Years ago, I ate and loved a Madhur jaffrey chicken curry recipe at someone’s house - itvwas made with leftover turkey meat.
One year, slash-rate carcasses I bought for stock after Christmas yielded so much cooked meat (3 or 4 lbs iirc) I froze it and got utterly fed up trying to think of ways to repurpose it. It went into thai green curry and tom kha soup, vietnamese summer rolls and faux Peking “duck” rolls, shepherds-ish pie, tinga for tacos and enchiladas, arroz con “pollo”, indian shami kababs, and so on.
What do you make?
