Welcome to a new series: Make the Most of Your Leftovers. We plan to continue this, giving you ideas on how you can use leftovers.
Anna has developed quite an art of putting together leftovers into delicious soups or casseroles. When we rave over the casserole, she tells us to enjoy it that time because there won’t ever be another one just like it. I am trying to learn from her.
Here are the leftovers I had available:
- ham gravy with ham chunks
- 3 biscuits
- pork spare rib meat
Since there are only 6 of us at home now, we have downsized our casseroles to 8×8 pans.
First I greased the pan, and then put a layer of rice on the bottom. I would say about 1/3 the depth of the pan had rice.
Anna suggested I sprinkle a light seasoning of garlic salt on the rice to give it some extra flavor.
Our next layer was the meat we had picked off the spare ribs from a couple of days earlier.
Next, we added a layer of ham gravy that we had thinned a little so that it would seep nicely into the rice.
We put the casserole together and refrigerated it two days before we used it.
Before baking at 350 degrees for 1 hour, we topped it with the cubed biscuits and sprinkled parmesan cheese over that.
It really was delicious!
Trusting in Jesus,
“Who giveth food to all flesh:
for his mercy endureth for ever.”
