Leftovers Recipe: Bolognese Sauce

My biggest problem with leftovers is that I’m not always in the mood for the same dish the next day. Another issue: some food should not be reheated, like burgers. But because I try not to waste good food, I look for ways to re-invent.

Yesterday:
Burgers

Leftovers:
Burgers made from chopped beef and chopped pork

Today’s leftovers meal:
Bolognese sauce

Bolognese Sauce
Ingredients:
Leftover burgers
2 tbsp. olive oil

1 carrot
1 cup of mushrooms
1/4 cup red wine
Salt & pepper to taste

In a large pot, saute chopped garlic and shallot in olive oil

Add 1 cup of sliced mushrooms

Add a splash of red wine and simmer

Add whole tomatoes and chopped carrot

Add crumbled burgers

Simmer for at least 1 hour

Scoop onto your favorite pasta, season, and eat

Leftover Bonus: The leftover buns from the burgers were used as croutons in a salad. So simple: roughly cut pieces of bread tossed with olive oil, salt, pepper, and paprika then toast.
