4th of July Leftovers

We spent our 4th of July with a long, lazy lunch with extended family members. Lots of fun, and lots of leftovers. Hence the theme for today’s Recipe Roundup: what to do with leftovers from our 4th of July feasts!

Leftover: Grilled Hotdogs & Buns

This Corn Dog Bread from Foodie with Family is made with 8 cooked hotdogs and cornbread, which means it’s probably perfect comfort food.

For leftover buns, Real Simple, one of my favorite magazines, has a lovely article on 7 Ways to Use Leftover Buns. Included are recipes for croutons, pineapple upside-down cake, and salami panini. Very awesome.

Leftover: Mashed Potatoes or Potato Salad

Lunch in a Box has a delicious-looking recipe for Faux Latkes made with canned tuna and leftover potato salad, and a lovely Bento as well. We love Bentos.

Cheap Eats’ Potato Salad Sandwich might not be the first thing you think of, but made with warm french bread? Looks delicious.

Leftover: Sheet Cake

Leftover cake is usually not a problem in our house (top it with ice cream? Or just… eat it?), but for something a little more jazzed up, why not try an English Trifle.

What do you do with your Fourth of July leftovers?
