Crockpot Beef Burger Stroganoff – Easy Coconut Cake
- Use your restaurant leftovers the same way you use regular leftovers. For example:
- Boil the carcass of deli chicken for soup or noodles and dumplings.
- Use leftover rice from Chinese take out in casseroles, soups, rice pudding or if it is white rice, eat it for breakfast with cinnamon, sugar and milk.
- Cut up leftover French fries and fry in bacon grease like hash browns or cook with chopped meat and veggies for an easy homemade hash.
- Leftover salads or veggies can be liquified to make vegetable broth or veggies can be frozen and then added to soups and casseroles.
- Uneaten hamburgers or hot dogs can be cut into pieces, frozen and then added to chili, baked beans, spaghetti, soups etc.
- Sometimes I need a dollop of whipped cream and I don’t always have it thawed. Thaw your whipped topping and place dollops on a cookie sheet. Freeze them. Place in a plastic bag and keep it in the freezer. When you make cocoa for the grandkids or need a dollop of whipped topping to top an individual dish of pudding or dessert you can pull out just what you need.
- The next time you make stroganoff, try adding an envelope of ranch salad dressing to the sour cream for a little extra flavor. You can do this to homemade or store bought stroganoff.
