Even though I love the leftovers, I can admit that sometimes you get sick of them. My husband is the biggest complainer when I am attempting to give him leftovers for a second night. Sometimes all it takes is a little redoing of the leftovers to make it more appealing to everyone.

These are some of the best recipes for putting those delicious leftovers to good use and get your whole family to happily eat them up.

My biggest issue will be deciding which recipe to make first.  Which one will you be trying first?
