Multiple Meals Post: What to do with leftover Southwestern Egg Roll Filling??

3 Jan

In my household, there are 2 of us… sometimes just 1 since my husband lives in a different state. Cooking for 1 or 2 people can leave a lot of leftover food. My husband can eat leftovers for days, same meal and all. I can’t do that. I need new meals, new flavors, new textures. I have an issue of getting bored with repetition, and meals are no different.

One concept on this blog I want to share is the idea of multiple meals. What can you do with the meal you had the night before and make it into a new exciting meal??

I really hate when you buy a product and you only need 2 tablespoons of it for a recipe, what are you supposed to do with the rest?

I plan on addressing both of those issues on this blog with new creative things you can do at home in your kitchen. So let’s get it started!!!

Yesterday I made a post about Baked Southwestern Egg Rolls. The recipe can make up to 24 rolls. I have NO business eating that many. Seriously, they are better for you than what you get at Chili’s, but come on. I don’t need to be starting off the new year with any additional pounds. So I used half of the recipe for eggs rolls.

This morning I was looking in my fridge looking for something to eat. I saw the container with the rest of the egg roll filling. It really was delicous. I could of put it on some chips and just eaten it that way. However, chips & dip for breakfast just wasn’t something I wanted to eat. (Atleast not today) Instead, I decided to use up some eggs I had in my fridge and make a Mexican Egg Scramble.

Be creative with your leftovers!

Wow oh wow! Combining the egg roll filing with a couple of eggs was amazing!! I think it was almost better as an egg scramble. I would definitely make this again!

Egg Scramble, Serves 2 people


* 1 cup of the Baked Southwestern Egg Rolls filling

* 5 eggs, beaten


Heat up a skillet and add a little olive oil to the pan. Place 1 cup of the egg roll filling in the skillet. Once you see the cheese starting to melt, add the eggs. Cook for 4 minutes, or until the eggs are no longer runny. (It’s you personal preference. I know some people enjoy a runny egg.) Serve right away and enjoy!
