This week’s Lasang Pinoy Sundays theme is Leftovers. It’s a theme I’m very familiar with since I’m used to rehashing old dishes in the fridge. Either by reheating or by reinventing leftovers into something new, it’s always something that’s present in our home.
My entry features potato salad, made from a leftover baked potato. I cooked one too many baked potatoes for dinner the evening which made its reappearance in my bento the next day as potato salad.
To prepare, I cubed the potato, buttered and all. Refrigerating it caused the butter I drizzled on it to congeal but no biggie, it didn’t really matter much. I also peeled and cubed half a Fuji apple and threw in half a chopped onion. Throw in some Pine Nuts (I prefer walnuts but these were the only nuts lying around the house) then added just enough kewpie mayo to dress the thing. Season with salt and pepper and there! Baked potato no more, all thanks to other ingredients just lying around the house.
What are your favorite ways to give life to old leftovers?
