Leftovers Are a Good Thing!
In my family, "leftovers" were never a bad thing. Either we had something good left for another meal, or we had some "raw material" to cook up something awesome in a new meal a day or two later.
This quick recipe is an example of how you can add a little "something" to a leftover and keep the good times rolling.
What You Need
- Olive Oil
- Garlic Powder
- Grated Parmesan
- A griddle or skillet
What To Do
- Cut the biscuits in half, as shown in the picture, and spread butter on the inside of the half.
- Sprinkle garlic powder on each biscuit, again on the inside of the half.
- Put 1-2 Tablespoons of olive oil on the griddle (or skillet) and heat until the oil is hot enough to pop, but isn't smoking.
- When the oil is hot, place the biscuits butter-side-down on the griddle.
- Toast for 1-2 minutes OR less if it seems the biscuits may burn.
- Remove from the griddle and sprinkle grated Parmesan cheese on the toasted side. You're done.
Here are two items I use regularly and are featured in this article: the cast-iron griddle, and the Misto sprayer. They're available from Amazon.com - click on either image to buy the product from Amazon.
I use olive oil exclusively as a pan coating. To reduce the amount of chemicals I release into the environment, I use a Misto sprayer as a green alternative to commercial aerosol products. I've had my current one about 5 years and it's still going strong.
And, on the right, my faithful favorite cast-iron griddle. I'm planning on giving it to my grandkids one day!
