Instructions
  1. Preheat your oven to 180 C (350 F).
  2. If the soup is really soupy, remove some of the broth. This recipe is assuming you have a good amount of homemade soup left over. Add the soup and the peas to a casserole dish or a 9x13 baking dish or even a 7x11 baking dish if you have less soup.
  3. Make your roux by melting the butter in a sauce pan then whisking in the flour, cook, while whisking, until it starts to turn a golden brown, then slowly whisk in the milk. Whisk until the roux is smooth.
  4. Pour the roux into the baking dish and mix with the soup and peas. Top with Parmesan cheese as you desire.
  5. Bake for 30 minutes, serve and enjoy.
Recipe Notes

Low cost as the soup and peas are paid for.

Variants: 1. Use peas and carrots in place of just peas.

  1. Melt butter in saucepan over medium heat. Add flour and whisk until mixture becomes a dark brown color, 6 to 8 minutes. Add the Worcestershire sauce and whisk for about 1 minute. Add beef stock and salt, and pepper to taste and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and cook until sauce is thickened, about 20 minutes. OR just prepare a packet or two of gravy mix and use that.

  3. Fry the eggs sunny side up in another pan.
  4. To plate, divide the rice and meat mixture between 4 plates, pour on some gravy, place a fried egg on top, serve.

Low cost since using left over meat.

This is a from a good friend and it sounds wonderful, I really like the addition of the potatoes. This recipe as listed is for using leftover turkey or chicken, which is perfect, especially with a leftover turkey. If you wish to make this with fresh chicken, or even turkey legs or wings, use the fresh meat to make the broth with trinity (carrot, onion, celery) first, then proceed as this is written.

Instructions
  1. I boiled 5 chicken quarters, separated, and made the broth for this soup. Here is the chopped leg and thigh meat, fork tender and juicy.
  2. Add the broth and water to a large pot and the salt, note the differences between sea salt and table salt as well. Add the potatoes and bring to a boil and cook for 10 minutes.
  3. For the carrots, if using large Thai carrots, only need two, go ahead and dice those, if using the slender carrots like in the US, slice those into rings and add them to the pot once the water is boiling. Add the bay leaves as well. Add the broken pasta to the pot.
  4. Heat a large non stick pan on medium heat and add the olive oil, when hot, add the celery and onion, saute until golden and soft then add to the soup pot with the soup.
  5. Add the chicken or turkey meat to the pot, also add the Mrs. Dash seasoning and black pepper. Taste and adjust salt and pepper to your desired liking.
  6. Simmer the soup until the potatoes and carrots are tender.
  7. Ladle into bowls and serve.
Recipe Notes

For a leftover dish, this is low cost as the turkey or chicken is already paid for in another recipe. If using fresh chicken to make a chicken soup, still low cost for 10 servings.

Shortcut: Mrs. Dash Seasoning.

This is a British term and is intended to use leftover cabbage and other vegetables, and meat from a Sunday Roast, pan fried and mixed into the leftover mashed potatoes. A good friend of mine in the US told me what his wife did with the leftover cabbage and pasta from a meatloaf dinner they enjoyed, she took the leftover cabbage and pasta, added some chopped veggies, some chicken broth and potatoes, and the first thing that popped into my mind was Bubble & Squeak. You can make patties out of this and fry on each side or just cook everything in a pan to get a crispy crust as you mix and cook it, like a hash. Can be a breakfast side, lunch, or dinner. There is no servings or times listed, nor quantities for ingredients, this is a true make with what leftovers you have, can be a side dish or a main.

Leftover Veggies and Meat you can use
Servings:
Instructions
For a Whole Pan
  1. Heat a large heavy pan on medium heat and add some vegetable oil.
  2. Mix the leftover veggies into the mashed potatoes or crushed roast potatoes, add to the heated pan and spread out to an even layer. Allow to cook until crispy on the bottom, then flip or just mix it up with a spatula to get more crispy parts to it.
  3. Serve as a side or a main, depending on how much you have. Main with a fried egg or two on top sounds very good.
For Patties
  1. Heat a large heavy pan on medium heat and add some vegetable oil.
  2. Mix the leftover veggies into the mashed potatoes or crushed roast potatoes and shape into patties, fry on both sides to crisp them up golden brown.
  3. I would serve these as a side at breakfast or with pasta for a dinner.

Low cost since you are using leftovers.

This would be a leftover meal for sure to use up pulled pork and any roasted green chilies. Since this is a thicker sandwich, key is to cook slower to keep the bread from over toasting, unless you have heated up the pulled pork to pipping hot just prior to making the sandwich.

Instructions
  1. Cook the bacon in a pan until crispy, remove from the pan leaving the fat in the pan.
  2. Same pan, add the onion and garlic and cook in the bacon fat until translucent, about 1 minute. Add the cooked white rice, bacon and chopped spring onion (reserve a tablespoon of spring onion and bacon for garnish). Mix together, then add the butter, soy sauce, salt and pepper to taste. Mix together, then set aside.
  3. Mix eggs and milk together in a small bowl. Heat another pan with a splash of oil. Add the egg mix to pan. Sprinkle mozzarella on top and cover with a lid until cheese is melted and the flat omelet is cooked through.
  4. Place the fried rice on a plate, and add the egg omelet on top of the rice. Garnish with the reserved spring onion and bacon. Dig in and enjoy.
Recipe Notes

With the cheese, this is about $1 per serving, without cheese, much lower cost.

Variants: Replace the omelet with two sunny side up eggs, add chopped bell pepper, use ground beef, pork, chicken, or even breakfast sausage in place of the bacon, you get the idea.

Ingredients

Instructions
  1. The original recipe stated 'chunks' of Cheddar cheese, I think a safe bet would be to use a block of Cheddar and cut it into 3/4 inch cubes.
  2. In a large bowl, mix together the mashed potatoes, egg, and salt and pepper. In a shallow bowl, add the bread crumbs.
  3. Grab a small scoop of mashed potatoes and gently form that around a cube of Cheddar.
  4. Roll the mashed potato ball in the bread crumbs to evenly coat it, then wrap a slice of bacon around the ball and fasten with a toothpick or wooden skewer.
  5. Heat a deep heavy skillet with 2 inches of oil to near 180 C but not smoking. Fry the bombs in the hot oil until golden brown brown, drain on paper towels and allow to cool for several minutes.
  6. Serve with sour cream or dipping sauces of your choice.
Recipe Notes

Low cost. Once I make these I will figure an accurate amount.

Shortcuts: Bread Crumbs, Sour Cream.
