Who knew there was such a quick and easy recipe to turn leftovers into a new meal. This was a great way to recreate leftovers in the fridge. Made for Spring Pic a Chef 2012. Thank you!

I don't really know what I was expecting from this recipe but whatever it was this came out better, lol. I used some leftover mashed potatoes and veggie "sausage " patties with 1.5 tsps of Mexican Seasoning. It made a great lunch on another very cold and blustery day. It's very simple and I would certainly make this again. Made for PAC, spring 2011
