The vast majority of the time my leftovers take the same shape as the original meal. I am only cooking for myself, so who would I be fooling?

I live for leftover potatos. All the things you can do with them, but my favorite is to slice them, sautee with some crispy bacon, peas and a cheesy sauce. Left over cabbage is irresistable to me, I love it cold for breakfast. Most of our (paltry) leftovers appear in DH's lunch box or as my lunch.

With leftover meatballs, I like to slice up, and use in lasagne. leftover mince, I sometimes make toasties out of, I love mince toasties! Or sometimes I make shepherds pie. Leftover veg, I like to mash, and spread on a toasted tortilla.

A lot of times our leftovers end up being my breakfast, just the way they are. I do as a lot of you do with my leftovers, using them as a base for another meal. I especially love making hash from leftover steak or roast. I don't try to trick my husband though. In fact he likes to hear how I turn one thing into another, so to speak, using leftovers.
