Leftovers for Lunch
Last night's dinner was delicious, but what should you pack for lunch? These five recipes show you how to turn leftovers into lunch or to make a dinner that will pack well for lunch tomorrow. Four of the recipes can be eaten cold. The fifth — a soup — you'll want to serve warm by packing in a thermos.
Roast Beef Wrap
Leftover roast beef gets sliced, wrapped, and drizzled with a spicy sauce to make a Roast Beef Wrap. Tuck in another food group — veggies — by adding a little sliced tomato and Romaine lettuce.
Pepper & Onion Frittata
A frittata (say: frih-ta-ta) is a lot like an omelet or a quiche. This Pepper & Onion Frittata mixes eggs, veggies, and cheese. The mixture is first cooked in a pan, then broiled until it's brown and bubbly. Make this for dinner and pack a wedge for lunch.
Grilled Veggie Pita
Whip up your own herb-flavored cream cheese for this Grilled Veggie Pita. You can use any leftover veggies you have on hand. Carrots, zucchini, and eggplant are especially good.
Chicken Salad & Greens
Transform last night's roasted chicken into Chicken Salad & Greens. Do you like celery, red onion, and raisins? All three go into the chicken salad that's served on top of Romaine lettuce.
