These simple dishes were re-imagined into equally tasty dishes the next day.

Whether you cooked enough food to feed an army for your family party, or simply made a little extra accidently for your dinner date, leftovers are bound to happen.

However, you aren’t doomed just to reheat or toss them away! In fact, you can reimagine these dishes into even tastier menu options, so you can make sure none of your delicious meals go to waste!

Leftover Spaghetti and Meatballs:

Try turning it into spaghetti casserole! Simply put the leftover spaghetti in a greased baking dish, toss in cut-up meatballs and sprinkle the top with mozzarella cheese. Bake at 360 degrees for 15 minutes, and boom! Dinner reimagined.

Leftover Pizza:

Sure, you could just eat it cold, but why not make it a functional meal? Warm and slice your pizza up into mini bites and toss them in a leafy green salad. It’s healthy now, right?

Leftover Meatloaf:

Grab your slices of leftover meatloaf and sandwich them between two slices of white bread with some cheese and ketchup. Put it in the microwave for a minute. Tastiest. Sandwich. Ever.

Leftover Ham:

Big family dinner last night? Ham can be diced up and folded into eggs for a tasty breakfast casserole.

Leftover Birthday Cake:

Really, you don’t have to just stick it in the freezer and wait for the midnight munchies to enjoy it! Instead, get super sweet and crumble up the cake for birthday cake milkshakes. Simply spin the crumbles into your favorite ice cream and you’ll have an extra sweet treat.
