Alrighty, finally the two leftover makeovers I promised. It has been a busy beginning to the holidays already! All three of us have had some kind of cold or flu in the past 2 weeks so leftovers are a great help.
So this first one is not anything super creative but it is tasty and will be perfect in preparation for day 3 of leftovers.
Potatoes Onions and a Jar!
Take your lovely potatoes and onions and dice them up into bite size pieces. I always have a jar of lovely Tikka Masala (seeds of change is the brand I love) on hand for quick suppers. Of course you can make your own tikka masala sauce, perhaps I will tackle that another time.
Pour it all into a sauce pan with your pre-cooked potatoes and onions. You may want to add a little water to the sauce to make it more saucy. This brand is very flavorful and salty so I find it benefits from a little extra water.
Cook up some rice (I prefer brown but use whatever you like). Warm the sauce, finish your rice, and serve it up. I like to put a little bit of plain yogurt on top. Sorry no photos of this one, you will have to use your imagination.
Egg Bake – anything goes!
Okay so next up- I hope you have some of your lovely Indian meal leftover now!
This is not even a recipe really. You can use any leftovers you have on hand– – Stirfry, spaghetti, indian yum, beans and rice, nuts, dried fruits – Get creative!

Take your leftovers, put them in a large mixing bowl – throw in 6-7 eggs, 1 Tbls olive oil and mix it all up. Pour into a greased baking dish or preferably an ungreased cast iron skillet.
Bake 35-45 minutes at 350

Serve it up with a nice salad – great cold in the lunch the next day too!
