What to Do with Your Corned Beef Leftovers


St. Patrick’s Day is over, and now you’re left with a heaping helping of corned beef in your refrigerator? No worries. I admittedly like corned beef leftovers more than I enjoy corned beef and cabbage. The possibilities seem to stretch on for miles, and when all else fails, put an egg on it.

    Looking for a hangover cure for breakfast? Salt corned beef topped with a fried egg is just what the doctor ordered. A bloody mary alongside, and you'll feel back to normal in no time. Well, at least you'll have food in your stomach.

    Don't just toast your Reuben, Panini press it down. I'm a big fan of the traditional Reuben with sauerkraut, but this one takes the leftover cabbage you have to make a new and crisp twist.

    Flour tortillas are good for a multitude of things, and turning leftovers into something warm and fun to eat happens to be one of their best uses. Rather than pumpernickel bread, grill your leftover corned beef along with some cheese into a quesadilla treat.
