How to Make Leftovers Delicious Again


People always seem to have leftovers lying around. We used to look at them and shrug, knowing our dish wouldn't taste as exciting the second time around. But, after talking to a couple kitchen experts we learned some great tips for making leftovers delicious again.

Question 1: What are we supposed to do with that last bit of Dijon mustard left in the jar?
Answer: Turn it into a mustard vinaigrette to dress your salads and veggies. The best part is that you can create and store the dressing in the jar so there aren't any extra dishes to do. That's also a great way to take it to work or school for lunch.

Ingredients: Dijon Mustard, Garlic, Olive Oil, Lemon Juice, Red Wine Vinegar, Worcestershire Sauce, Salt & Pepper



Question 2: What are we supposed to do with extra mashed potatoes?
Answer: Make crispy mashed potato pancakes. Then, top them with sour cream & chives or your favorite sauce.
