Make a little extra corned beef and cabbage this St. Patrick’s Day and try one of these delicious ways to use up your leftovers.

You don’t have to be Irish to enjoy St. Patrick’s Day — especially with all the good eats involved. When the fog and headache clear after a St. Patrick’s Day well-spent, relish in the fact that leftovers mean even more delicious treats can be enjoyed days after your green beer supply has dried up.

Rather than just reheating that perfectly cooked Irish lager-soaked corned beef and cabbage, we have a few ideas to reinvigorate your appetite and leftovers with the addition of just a few extra ingredients. Add an Asian twist to your leftover Irish fare with wonton-wrapped, deep-fried egg rolls or add some potatoes to the mix for a corned beef hash stuffed bell pepper that is so good you will want to make this for breakfast, lunch, and dinner.

Of course, in order to make the ultimate leftover Reuben or one of our favorite corned beef twists, you must first make the Utlimate Corned Beef and Cabbage dish, which you can learn all our secrets for in our definitive guide.
