Don't throw out the leftovers - fry them up!

I could practically cry when I have food leftover and I end up throwing it out - good economy or bad! And of course I have to fight the inherited urge to freeze it right before it goes bad - see prior post! Since I still had the leftover grits from last weekend's meal but no sauce, I formed them into patties and fried them in a pan with a little butter and olive oil and served with an over-easy egg. If you really wanted to plan on doing this you could put your leftover grits (before adding the cheese) in a square pan and refrigerate overnight, then slice them into little rectangles and fry. My grandmother Daisy used to do this for me and served them with maple syrup.
