Lovely Leftovers!

On a wet winter Monday it’s good to be warm and toasty in the kitchen. I love Mondays as there is often a dish of leftovers in the fridge. I had a Mexican course this weekend, so I found some smoky black bean and sweet potato chilli and a portion of refried beans to use up.

Rather than simply reheat it and serve it with rice I decided to make burgers. There was a slice from the end of a loaf in the bread bin so I whizzed it in the food processor to make breadcrumbs. I combined this with the leftovers and shaped it into patties.

Have a go! Use up some leftover chilli and breadcrumb or a grain. Or leftover mashed potato or other root veg. Even better some leftover hummus or bean pate! And a tin of beans, herbs and spices to suit.

  1. Love this idea. Love using up things in the fridge.
    You have inspired me so will use up mash and leeks and make into patties !
