I know we are nowhere near Thanksgiving, but we like to have a nice Thanksgiving meal a couple times throughout the year to test new recipes. This time around we had a bunch of leftovers and thought some Thanksgiving leftover egg rolls sounded delicious! Spoiler Alert! These egg rolls were freaking fantastic! Plus, you get to dip them in gravy! Easily the best leftover dish that we have ever made. Trust me, we have made a ton.
I don’t know about you, but we always make way more food than we need for Thanksgiving so that we can have leftovers. I almost think that the leftovers are better than the original meal. I know it sounds wrong, but Thanksgiving leftovers are the bomb! Usually we have a pretty well balanced amount of leftovers. However, this time we had more leftover potatoes than usual. So, I decided that it was time to come up with a recipe that featured leftover mashed potatoes. This Thanksgiving Shepherd’s Pie features leftover turkey, gravy, vegetables all topped with a nice layer of potatoes. It was a hit and I am sure it will be a hit at your house!
Back in the day I used to work at a go-kart track that was situated right next to Ponderosa Steak House. One of my favorite lunch time meals was Sirloin Tips. I haven’t thought of that for a while until I went to the store and saw that top sirloin steaks were on sale. So … Read moreSirloin Tips with Mushrooms
Starch Starch Starch, I love Starch. This is the greatest meal I have ever had. It is based on one that I had a Bob Evans Restaurant. It is basically a Biscuit, topped with mashed potatoes, topped with chicken noodle soup. Amazing!! This was one meal that I was extremely happy that I had leftovers of.
I can not emphasize how much I enjoyed this meal. Noodles, potatoes and a biscuit, so many carbs, so frickin awesome.
Last week I made a pot roast and it needed a few sides. So I searched the internet to find a couple of sides to serve along with the roast. One was the Roasted Cauliflower that I posted about last week. Today I am posting about some exquisitely creamy, garlic Parmesan mashed potatoes. So tasty and full of flavor. They honestly take no more time than regular mashed potatoes so if you have a choice, I would always make these.
I shaved some slices of Parmesan onto the potatoes for this shot. It is unnecessary, but added yet another punch of cheese flavor to the dish.
I have said it and I will say it again. I love potatoes. They are tasty, filling, and go great with cheese. A couple of days ago I posted Braised Short Ribs. They were delicious and created some of the tastiest gravy that I have ever had. What goes great with gravy? Potatoes. What goes great with braised short rib gravy? Goat Cheese Mashed Potatoes.
They were creamy and delicious. They had just enough goat cheese to taste the cheese without overpowering the potatoes. Amazing!!!
I am in full Turkey Day mode. To go with the turkey that I made yesterday, I decided to make some whipped red skin potatoes. Red skin potatoes are my favorite. They are not too starchy and they taste great. Since they have less starch, they whip up nicely. Plus, I like having the skins in the mashed potatoes. It gives the potatoes a homemade feel and further emphasizes to your dinner guests that you actually made real mashed potatoes. Another bonus, I think it looks cool.
Simple and super tasty.
