Give Leftovers A Lift

Give Leftovers a Lift

Mashed Potato Makeover. “I combine leftover mashed potatoes with chopped onion and shredded cheese, then bake it,” says Rose Ann Miller of Flagler Beach, Florida. “It tastes like twice-baked potatoes without the work.”

Crumb-Saver. “Don’t discard cookie or cereal crumbs,” advises Marie Rabe of Bensenville, Illinois. “Use them to top pudding, gelatin and ice cream.”

Ham Helper. Marion Stanley of Joseph, Oregon mixes ground leftover baked ham with chopped olives and green pepper, shredded cheddar cheese, Dijon mustard and mayonnaise, then stuffs it into hard rolls. “Wrapped in foil and baked at 375° for 30 minutes, these are tasty hot sandwiches,” she remarks.
