    These are the best!! I make a roast specifically for this recipe. Absolutely yummy.

    Recipe #212793

    Traditional British pie, normally filled with steak and kidneys. I hate kidneys, so I omitted them.

    Recipe #17576

    Pratie is Irish for potato. This dish has the comfort of traditional apple pie with a light honey sweetness, not overpowering. I have not had a lot of luck with making pie crusts, so when I came across this Irish recipe I was eager to try it. Its chewy and similar to a cobbler topping in texture.

    Recipe #98342

    I make many versions of enchiladas depending on what is in the fridge. This one I especially liked, so I wrote it down. It's a great way to use up leftover pork! You can spice it up more with additional jalapenos or a dash of hot sauce mixed in with the enchilada sauce. Feel free to adjust the garlic to your taste. You may need to add more oil as you fry the tortillas to keep them from sticking to the pan.

    Recipe #365453

    Technically speaking, a Shepherd's pie is made with leftover lamb and a Cottage pie is made with leftover beef, but what's in a name - especially as this is my version of a French Cottage - Shepherd's pie made with leftover Recipe #176183!! It will work with any hearty beef or lamb stew leftovers and is delicious served with savoy cabbage & carrots. It will also work very well with Recipe #191313 I have adapted this recipe to feed about 4 people, that is based on the mashed potato quantities - but you can change the quantities to suit yourself; one, three or more people! N.B. I have also given an alternative measurement of butter - depending on how buttery and naughty you want your mashed potatoes to be, and, an option of a cheesy topping!

    This is fron the Hidden Valley site and sounds delicious. You may use leftover roast or sliced beef from the deli. The suggested recipe for the onion buns is not required, purchased buns are fine, but the homemade ones are outstanding. Recipe #312288 are suggested.

    Recipe #317692

    I had some leftovers,and I wanted to do something with them besides reheat them and serve them the same old way.So, this is what I came up with.By the way, C.O.M.F.Y. stands for, C leaned O ut M y F ridge, Y es ! Casserole.The amounts of the vegetables are what I had on hand, you can change the amounts to suit your tastes. And don't blame me for the name my SO came up with it, :).

    Recipe #303427

    Comfort food first prepared for me by my husband. Now that we're married, I've claimed it as my own! Simple preparation and kid friendly. Enjoy!

    Here is another way to use leftover beef roast. I hope you enjoy this as much as we do.

    Recipe #270743

    I had some leftovers from Recipe#146372 and I didn't want to make anymore Sloppy Joes,so I came up with this. For the pasta I used elbow macaroni,but feel free to use what you have on hand.And for the meat,use what ever you have leftover from any Sloppy Joe recipe.I suggest using the mild Ro-Tel,the original might be to hot for the kiddos :).

    Recipe #281617

    A stovetop dinner prepped, cooked and on the table in twenty. Serve with a tossed salad or veggie and warm bread for a complete meal.

    Recipe #104732

    Good Old Comfort Food! Created for RSC #6!

    Recipe #116448

    Posted in response to a "Lasagna" Talk Thread. This recipe is from my friend's mother in law. This recipe is perfect for using up leftover turkey after Thanksgiving or Christmas.

    Recipe #82290

    This is my new favourite pizza! I will often make a double batch of the chicken/BBQ sauce mixture and freeze it. I usually caramelize the onions by frying them until soft with 1 Tbsp of butter and 1 Tbsp of brown sugar. This makes the pizza very sweet but I like it that way;)

    Thought these sounded good, similar to a beef spiral I posted,except these are baked. (from the local newpaper)

    Recipe #15988

    I adopted this recipe from the Recipezaar account as I am always on the look out for make ahead recipes. I think these will freeze well and I look forward to trying that. This is the original introduction: "I needed to use up some cooked chicken and also wanted something quick, so, this is what I came up with. It was a hit at my house, I hope it is at yours too!(:" (thanks cbw)

    This is a terrific recipe to make when you have left over chicken. Saves a step, cuts down on the prep time and uses up that chicken.

    Recipe #24883

    This dish is a way to use leftover turkey but still get that deep flavor that comes from using fresh poultry. Easy, ecconomical and a great was to kick up holiday leftovers, my family begs for it! This is a "not so traditional" made up recipe.

    This was on Paula's Home cooking. I just love these. Left over mashed potatoes are the best, but you can make fresh mashed potatoes to make this.

    Recipe #265460

    Don't throw out any leftover turkey, gravy and cranberry sauce!'s an awesome recipe to use it up, and so easy to put together...Oh so yummy!
