What do you do with restaurant leftovers? Or do you eat it all at the restaurant? I’m a small person, so half of a sit-down dinner is just about right for me. I take the other half home and anticipate the leftovers! Sometimes, I make over the rest of the food and turn into a dinner for two for David and me. Take a look:
These homemade croutons used to be leftover bread from a restaurant. Cubed, brushed with olive oil, sprinkled with lemon pepper and toasted on a piece of foil in the toaster oven, these made a great addition to dinner.
I beefed up the risotto with extra cheese, milk, and chives, and it tasted great reheated!
Then the leftover half of a steak went into a small pot of vegetable soup with potatoes. The smokey flavor tasted just like the restaurant. This soup trick also works great for leftover burgers. It was yummy!
What do creative uses have you discovered for your restaurant leftovers?
