So I've got some leftover grilled potatoes and onion from last night's dinner and some bacon from breakfast......
What to do......
Make some great leftover eats of course!
When you've got a well stocked pantry and fridge/freezer, you can turn any kind of leftover into a whole new great meal experience.
So the foundation is bacon, potatoes, onion..... Does that sound like a great start or what? After all, everything goes better with bacon right?
With almost everything I needed for dinner already pre-cooked, this dish only took minutes to prepare, reheat and serve, thanks to my pantry, fridge and freezer.
Heating up a frying pan over medium heat, I warmed up some olive oil, then added the potato, onions and bacon. I then pulled some frozen peas from the freezer (gotta have some green veggies right?) and tossed those in, along with some Parmesan cheese and a pinch of Kosher salt. After a couple minutes of warming things up I seasoned things up with black pepper, red pepper flake and minced garlic. Stirring things up until everything was heated through (another couple minutes) I plated all that great leftover deliciousness with those new flavors of minced garlic, red pepper flake and peas. I topped everything off with another healthy dose of Parmesan cheese.
What just happened in minutes? I created an elevated meal using leftovers, my pantry, my freezer and fridge! It's a whole new great meal experience and another dose of YUM!
