Best leftover transformation

I did a lot of cooking Sunday...brunch for my kids, and picadillo and rice for the pot luck after Spanish Mass.

I had a couple of cups of cooked rice left over, along with some blueberries and some half and half from brunch.

I made rice pudding with blueberries instead of raisins, and sweetened it with maple syrup. Yum! Now I have a yummy breakfast for the rest of the week!

What’s your best leftover transformation?

Wow! That's creative. About the most I do is transform chicken breasts into chicken salad.

The rice pudding sounds delicious. I used rice, mushrooms, and left over Christmas turkey to make rissoto-one of my favorite comfort foods.

Leftover chicken breast became flatbread chicken bbq pizza, and now we eat every week or two. We eat it off of flatbread/naan. Spread/spray some olive oil on the bread, then sprinkle crushed fresh garlic, and toss the chicken with bbq sauce.
I layered on olive oil, garlic, chicken, chopped red onion, and cheddar cheese.

I also have made a lot of weird, yummy stuff with leftover taco meat (ground beef).
red beans and rice
taco mac (mac and cheese)
stuffed peppers- stuffed with rice, taco meat, and beans with salsa poured over the top

You topped anything I could have imagined. You're quite creative!

I don't have a transformation to add. I just wanted to say that the picadillo and rice sounds delicious!

I like to use leftovers too, but I'm not super creative.

li ike to add broth and make soup.
My favorite is adding broth and beans to leftover chicken tikka masala.

Three I can think of right now:

Leftover steak: I like to make Thai Beef Salad.

Leftover noodles or any kind of cooked pasta: something I just call cottage cheese noodles (diced onions cooked in generous butter, with cottage cheese, Parmesan, and salt and pepper stirred in with the pasta).

Leftover rice: bacon or Spam fried rice with an over-easy egg served atop the diner’s portion.

This isn't exactly a transformation but whenever my mom makes mostaccioli with her home made sauce she give me the leftovers. I love to put some olive oil in pan and fry the pasta to heat it up. When I was in college my mom would make me huge bowls of pasta and I would eat it this way all week!
