3 Leftovers = 1 New Yum




Unlike some others I know, I really do not mind leftovers. But when I do have them I really like to mix them together (if possible) to create a new dish. We had some leftover 10 Cheese Mac & Cheese from our posting on Tuesday 4-7-09, along with some corn and flat iron steaks we BBQ from Saturday 4-11-09. I took all of the leftovers and created one new dish, it turned out great!


4 C. - Leftover Mac & Cheese
1 C. - Leftover Corn Kernels
3/4 Lbs. - Sliced BBQ Flat Iron Steak
1/2 C. - Milk
2 Tbs. - Smokey Mesquite Steak Season

In a large soup pot place the Mac & Cheese and milk over medium heat to break down so it can get gooey and creamy. While the Mac & Cheese is heating through, in a small frying pan heat the sliced steak just until warm. Place the corn and steak into the Mac & Cheese then cover with a lid and simmer over low for about 10 minutes stirring occasionally. Serve hot sprinkled with some Smokey mesquite steak seasoning.

A lot of times I like eating the leftovers the next day better then the night it was made. All the flavors have had time to really soak in. I like your creation!
