My list of leftovers included:  Slow Cooked Pulled Pork (Shoulder) and Parmesan Mashed Potatoes.


I also pulled from the fridge some Queso Quesadilla - a part-skim mild melting cheese, some flour tortillas and a red onion. 


I pre-heated my oven to 350 degrees.  While the oven was pre-heating, I started to assemble my tortilla pizza.


A tortilla went down first (onto a foil-lined baking sheet).  Then I started layering with thin slices of cheese, bits of my leftover pulled pork (cut into bite-size pieces), slivers of red onion and then dollops of (cold) mashed potatoes.  The potatoes and cheese would act as my “glue” to hold the tortillas in place - so I needed these closest to the bottom and also the “top”.


This is unbelievably simple - just continue to layer your “leftover” ingredients - keeping in mind you need to have some “gluing agents” close to the tortilla layers.  Press down lightly as you finish each layer.


So - are you getting any creative ideas on how to use the leftovers lurking in your fridge?  The recipe uses prepared pesto and pasta sauce as some of it’s gluing agents.  So your options are almost limitless!


OK - back to work.  I did 2 layers (using 4 tortillas).  The recipe says 7 - oh my I bet it’s impressive - but can you imagine ... I mean, 2 of us ate this and we didn’t even finish it!


Once my layers were in place, I carefully transferred it to the oven.  I checked my pizza after 15 minutes and it was in pretty good shape.


I wanted to be sure the layers were piping hot - and yet I didn’t want the cheese to burn - so I tented it with foil and continued to let it bake another 15 minutes.  Isn’t it cute - it’s like peeking out of the foil - smile!


Once about a total of 30 minutes had passed - I pulled it out of the oven and allowed it to cool enough to cut it into 4 pieces.


This was really, really, really good.  Eric and I both liked it - and there was some leftover ... so a very budget-friendly meal - Leftover Makeovers ... experiment with what’s in your fridge and smile!


OH - and with what is leftover from this Leftover Makeover - it will certainly be re-heated - maybe for breakfast ... and just like Quesadillas - reheat it in your toaster oven (or oven) to crisp it on 350-375 degrees for about 8 minutes.


You could also freeze this and re-heat ... Lots of options ... I know, I’m really passionate about this kind of stuff!  It’s why I share!!
