So you saw that lovely roast pork I posted yesterday. I do love a roast dinner, don't you? I love the leftovers even more! They are a beautiful ingredient to use to create another delicious meal from. My mother was great at making pot pies from leftover roasts. I like to do that also, but if I can create a delicious casserole, so much the better! Delicious casserles like this Leftover Meat Escallope casserole! You don't need to use pork in this, lamb, beef or chicken work equally as well.
You can also use any leftover vegetables you might have from the dinner. Today I used green beans and carrot/swede mixed together.
A delicious sauce/gravy is created. I suppose if you have leftover gravy you can use that as well. I didn't so I made a sauce, using herbs, stock and mushrooms . . . seasonings.
I hate waste don't you? If I can use up every bit of leftovers I am a happy camper. I actually probably enjoy the leftovers more than the main dinner!
I like to add pasta to fill it out, but potatoes would work just as well, or even rice. It's a very adaptable and delicious casserole! A bit of cheese and some crumbs on top finish it all off nicely with a cheesy crispy topping!
A nice tossed salad on the side, and you have a delicious meal that everyone will enjoy and nobody will care if it is leftovers or not! I guarantee!
