One of the perks of this whole #whole30 experiment is I've learned a few new tricks to dress up leftovers. I've never cared for leftovers (with a few exceptions), but now we aren't throwing anything away! ( #nsv!) Leftovers twice-baked potatoes
--Leftover veggies, diced
--Leftover meats, cubed
--Bacon, cooked and crumbled
Pierce potato skins with a fork, rub with oil and sprinkle generously with salt. Bake at 425F for 45 minutes. Gently slice a strip from the top of each potato and scoop the insides into a bowl with the clarified butter, leaving a thin shell to hold its shape.
Add any leftovers to the potato insides. The amount of leftovers you use will determine how big of a meal you end up with. I added kale, a pork chop, bell pepper, and mushroom. And bacon, because let's face it, that's really the reason I made baked potatoes. Stir, and then repack into the potato shells. Bake for 15-20 minutes, or until completely warm.
I topped it with my most recent salsa, which is ANOTHER great way to use up produce! I really liked it, and I had enough leftovers to top with an egg the next morning for a very filling breakfast.
Leftovers and I get along, now.
