One of the best things about making big dinners is having leftovers for lunch the next day.
Usually, if we have some steak or lamb left over, it is going into a sandwich. But have you thought about making hash? Lamb hash is a very special treat indeed — just like beef hash all you have to do is chop some potatoes and onions and peppers and have at it (you can always find a recipe online if you don’t feel like free-styling)… with lamb you can add a bit of curry, and it still goes great with eggs or just on its own.
Doing unexpected things with the leftovers is the hallmark of a great chef. Ham sandwiches are great, of course, but how about whipping up a cordon blue? And if that ham has a bone-in, you are looking at the beginning of some great soup.
Here’s an easy tip: pretty much all leftover meat is good on pizza.
Here is another: pretty much all leftover meat is great in a taco.
Leftovers are definitely an art form in themselves. But as ever, it all starts with the ingredients!
