Leftover Ideas to Try

Use up your leftovers to make a second dinner. This is a great way to save money. See my ideas to help you stretch your budget.

  • Peppered Steak – Use leftovers to make burritos.
  • Walking tacos – Use leftover taco meat to make quesadillas or Crockpot Taco Soup.
  • Salmon – Use leftovers to make Salmon Tacos
  • Pizza Cupcakes – I doubt you will have leftovers but if you do, throw them in the air fryer and they reheat perfectly for lunch.
  • Ribs – I love to save the meat off the bone. Use it to make delicious bbq sandwiches, or mix it with bbq sauce and top it on Microwave Baked Potatoes
