Is it time to clean out your refrigerator?
Throw together this quick and easy casserole with refrigerator leftovers and items from your pantry. Left-Over Casserole will bring out your hidden chef, because you’re creating a new recipe each time you make it.
Begin by opening up the refrigerator to see what’s there.
Saute one onion; ½ chopped pepper (green, red, yellow or orange); ½ cup chopped celery and 1 large minced garlic. (Optional a couple of chopped tomatoes, 1 can of drained artichoke hearts, and/or sliced mushrooms.)
Then add any of the following: 2 to 3 cups cups already cooked, chopped or sliced, left-over chicken or turkey or roast beef; add 2 cups of already cooked brown rice. Heat through and serve.
Turn Leftover Casserole into Leftover Hash
Omit the brown rice and substitute 3 or 4 cooked whole potatoes. Slice the potatoes and brown in olive oil. Then add the sauteed onions, green peppers, celery and garlic. Mix in the cooked turkey, chicken or beef and heat.
