Elevating leftovers into a whole new great meal experience

So I've got some leftover grilled potatoes and onion from last night's dinner and some bacon from breakfast......  

What to do......

Make some great leftover eats of course!

When you've got a well stocked pantry and fridge/freezer, you can turn any kind of leftover into a whole new great meal experience.

With almost everything I needed for dinner already pre-cooked, this dish only took minutes to prepare, reheat and serve, thanks to my pantry, fridge and freezer.

Heating up a frying pan over medium heat, I warmed up some olive oil, then added the potato, onions and bacon.  I then pulled some frozen peas from the freezer (gotta have some green veggies right?) and tossed those in, along with some Parmesan cheese and a pinch of Kosher salt.  After a couple minutes of warming things up I seasoned things up with black pepper, red pepper flake and minced garlic.   Stirring things up until everything was heated through (another couple minutes) I plated all that great leftover deliciousness with those new flavors that I had on hand.  I topped everything off with another healthy dose of Parmesan cheese.

What just happened in minutes?  I created an elevated meal using leftovers, my pantry, my freezer and fridge!  It's a whole new great meal experience and another dose of YUM!
