The summer season is for pigging out on your favorite southern comfort foods. Whether BBQ, ribs, hamburgers, hot dogs, or a plethora of chips and dip is more your style, in Lebanon, Tennesse, we know how to eat. Often, we prepare a little bit too much food. Instead of wasting all of those perfectly grilled meats and veggies, whip up these recipes with your backyard BBQ leftovers.
Throw Together a Salad
If you have plenty of veggies and meat leftover, all you need is a bed of greens and your favorite dressing. Throw together a nourishing salad bowl with some grilled chicken, any vegetables you have on hand, and fresh fruit. And if you’re a croutons fan, break up your stale hot dog and hamburger buns into pieces.
It just so happens that July 5 is a Tuesday, which means you’re having tacos for dinner. If you have barbeque and slaw leftover, throw the two on some tortillas with barbeque sauce. If you grilled chicken or steak, mix in some peppers and onions for a fajita-style taco.
Breakfast is Served
If you wake up craving all of the delicious foods you ate on the Fourth, enjoy them breakfast style topped on a bowl of grits. If you grilled sausage for your Independence Day meal, chop it up into pieces and mix it with butter, cheese, and your choice of grits. If there are plenty of veggies sitting in the fridge, don’t let them go to waste. Mix them with cheese and eggs for a nutrient-dense scramble to start your day.
