Recipe Tag: leftover remix
I really am a meat and potatoes kind of girl. I was in search of something to do with the leftover corned beef I made the other day, and I was inspired by the delicious dish I had at Hash House A Go Go in Las Vegas a while back. In this version, I used fingerling potatoes and gave them a quick zap in the microwave before making them nice and crispy in the pan. To save time, you could substitute frozen diced potatoes. Dan had the genius idea of putting fried eggs on top for an extra shot of flavor. The beauty of this lies in its flexibility — use whatever meat you have, throw in some onions and peppers, and be creative.
The other day, we made the special sandwich that is a signature dish of Dan’s mom (http://foodto.us/2011/mama-antics-stuffed-ham-sammich.html). We really like how the creamy, cheese filling pairs with the crusty bread and the juicy pickle. We had some leftover filling, and I thought it would be really good rolled up into something resembling a pasta dish. Here, roasted eggplant coddles a savory creamy filling and pairs with tangy marinara and gooey melted cheese.
