Do you have leftovers you want to use up? Maybe mashed potatoes? Rice? Ham? Cooked chicken? Turkey? Hard-boiled eggs after Easter, maybe? Anything at all ... here's a collection of recipes that use leftovers. If you have recipes you'd like included in this Cookbook, let me know!
This is a great way to use up leftover turkey or chicken. Very similar to traditional gumbo, this is a quick and easy alternative - a thick, hearty gumbo that can be spiced up even more at the table with some Louisiana Hot Sauce and/or Cajun Seasoning. Enjoy!
This is an adopted recipe. I have yet to make it, but I don't really seen any drastic changes that I would make. If anyone decides to give it a try, let me know if you come up with any changes that you think would benefit this recipe.
This pie doubles as a formal dinner or picnic dish. It is our favorite savory pie. I don't know where the original came from-somewhere down south but I have added more onion, pepper, nutmeg, cayenne and cheese. Also the original called for regular deli ham-holy salt-it just about killed us! So here you go and by the way I like it best cold.
This is the way my mom always made stuffed peppers. I don't cook the meat before stuffing. The sauce has a smoky flavor. If you don't have any ground ham, you can add a ham hock, ham shank, or ham bone to the pot for extra flavor.
This recipe has evolved over the years, originally based on my mom's recipe. I've tried tomato sauce and diced tomatoes for the sauce and found them to be too acidic. The tomato soup is just right, I think. The ham is wonderful in these.
