5 Ways to Transform Leftovers Into New Meals 

Looking for tasty and easy ways to use up your leftovers? Whether it’s a leftover chicken, beef, pork, vegetables, rice, or pasta – we have you covered! 

Here are five ways to transform your leftovers into new meals. Easy breakfast, lunch, and dinner ideas that you’ll love. 

The Frittata

Frittata is an excellent leftover meal. It’s cheap, quick-cooking, and it can hide many leftovers, from vegetables to bits of roast beef, pork or chicken, and even pasta. To make a delicious leftover frittata for breakfast, dice your leftovers, whisk together some eggs with cream and fold it all together in a cast-iron skillet. You can also add crumbled cheese on top and bake it all at 350 degrees for 15-20 minutes. Try finishing your frittata with some Breakfast Blend. Or, top with a bit of Cajun Blend to wake things up.  

Egg & Fried Rice

Savory rice can be a perfect way to repurpose leftover rice and vegetables. Heat a few tablespoons of oil in a skillet or wok over medium heat. Add leftover rice and vegetables and stir for 3-5 minutes. Then, pour in 2 eggs and fry for 2 minutes, scrambling the egg while it cooks. Finally, remove from heat, cover, and let stand for 5 minutes. Don’t forget to add soy sauce and some Chicken Blend to put a blast of flavor on your egg-fried rice. Enjoy!

The Omelet

Like frittata, the omelet can hide almost anything: leftover vegetables, cheese, and roasted bits of meat. And it is your choice of spices that can easily take it to another level. Try our Breakfast Blend, specifically created to make every breakfast taste great — all without high levels of sodium. To put a blast of flavor in your omelet, try our Caribbean Blend. It’s a perfect blend of exotic island flavors and custom-made to work best with fish, shrimp, chicken, pork loin, or any tropical style cuisine.

The Soups

There’s probably no easier way to transform leftovers into new meals than soup making. Whether you’re using leftover vegetables, turkey, chicken, or the juicy bits of yesterday’s roast, your choice of spices will make all the difference. Be bold. Have some leftover chicken? Try our Chicken Blend. Have some beef or pork tenderloin? Try using our Steak Blend, Rib Rub, or Hunter’s Blend. Have some leftover seafood or want a soup with an exotic kick? Try our Caribbean Blend.

Burritos

Our final leftover meal idea is the burrito. Here, everything is fair game; leftover beef, chicken, pork, vegetables, tofu… You name it. It can all go into a burrito. In terms of spices, our suggestion is to choose based on your favorite flavors. If you enjoy exotic flavors like cayenne pepper, nutmeg, or ginger, try our Caribbean Blend. For those who love garlic, paprika, and a twist of dark chili powder – choose Cajun Blend. To get a blast of flavor on your same old chicken, pick our Chicken Blend or Rib Rub. For those into some classic flavors like gourmet black pepper, salt, garlic, or onion – Hunter’s Blend and Breakfast Blend will do the job. 

We hope these easy leftover ideas spark your creativity! 

Making the Perfect Potato Salad for Your July 4th BBQ


July 4th is almost upon us! The summer holiday is synonymous with parades, watching fireworks exploding in summery skies, and enjoying a heartymeal outdoors with a family. 

The food is, of course, a focal point for the day, and the menu typically includes the basics like hotdogs, corn on the cob, and creamy coleslaw. But, to spice things up, we’ve prepared a perfect potato salad recipe that is a must-have at every picnic and barbecue table. 

Are you ready? 

This classic mayo-based potato salad is perfect for serving alongside juicy beef brisket, crispy BBQ chicken wings, or even next to a steak! 

Ingredients for Potato Salad

POTATOES

Waxy potatoes are often the best choice for a delicious potato salad. They hold their shape better when cooking and have texture. Look for Yukon gold or red potatoes at the store. 

ADD-INS

The possibilities are endless. We love adding hard-boiled eggs, green onions, celery, crumbled bacon, and chopped pickles for a zesty twist. 

POTATO SALAD DRESSING

This recipe has a creamy dressing that is super easy to prepare. Classic flavors include Dijon mustard, mayonnaise, lemon juice, and finely chopped chives. Spices are also crucial for the overall taste of the salad. Our Breakfast Blend works well in potato salad. It has garlic, sea salt, black pepper, chili powder, cayenne pepper, paprika, and celery. It sure will bring a new blast of flavor! 

How to Make Our Perfect Potato Salad for Your July 4th BBQ

Ingredients:

  • Six medium Yukon gold or red potatoes (2 to 2 1/2 pounds, leave the skin on and quarter) 
  • Three tablespoons white vinegar
  • Two celery stalks, diced
  • Six green onions, diced
  • 1/2 to 1 cup of pickles, diced
  • Five hard-boiled eggs, peeled
  • 1 1/2 cups mayonnaise
  • One tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons celery seed
  • Our Breakfast Blend to taste 
  • paprika for garnish

Instructions:

Step 1

Place potatoes (with skin) in a large pot of cold water, add a pinch of salt, cover, and bring to boil. Once boiling, reduce heat to medium; simmer 12-15 minutes or until potatoes are easily pierced with a fork or pairing knife. Drain; cool until just able to handle. Place potatoes in a large bowl.

Step 2

Peel the skins from the potatoes and cut potatoes into 1/2″ square pieces. Transfer the potatoes to a large mixing bowl and sprinkle with the white vinegar. Toss the potatoes with the vinegar and set them aside to cool for about 15-20 minutes.

Step 3

Add the celery and the green onions to the potato mixture. Next, chop 4 of the hard-boiled eggs and add to the potato mixture.

Step 4

Mix mayonnaise, Dijon mustard, celery seed, and our Breakfast Blend in a medium bowl. Slice the last egg into thin slices and place the slices on top of the salad. Sprinkle with paprika for garnish. Chill for at least 30 minutes to 1 hour before serving.

This hearty bowl of potato salad is with just the right amount of crunch and satisfying!
