While I like heating up leftovers for dinner or enjoying them for lunch the next day, I also like to add them into pita bread, Greek wraps or any other bread I’m in the mood for. I don’t like to limit a good sandwich to the usual lunch meat from the deli, although I do enjoy a good ham and Swiss cheese sandwich from time to time.
I also feel good knowing that I’m not throwing out any leftovers. Here are some great ways to enjoy leftovers in a sandwich and if you have a large family, why not double up these recipes and pack up lunches for everyone!
Remove the chicken from the skewers and stuff them in whole wheat pita pockets with any of the leftover vegetables. If you prefer, add your own favourite vegetables like lettuce, tomato, onions and cucumber and some of the leftover aioli sauce or mayonnaise.
Enjoy a slice of this leftover meatloaf served between two slices of toasted whole grain bread. Make a unique sauce by adding a little mayonnaise to the chipotle ketchup and top it all off with your choice of vegetables. I would use alfalfa sprouts, tomatoes and some cheddar cheese. Yum!
Here’s a recipe that is perfect served in a Greek pita the next day. It really doesn’t need more than that but if you want to kick it up a notch, try adding some tzatziki.
This is such a great recipe that is bursting with flavour. Serve it in a pita the next day just the way it is!
