Like most people, after almost a year of staying home and cooking each nite it has started to get boring. In looking at long forgotten recipes on this blog it was time to re-visit some of them which then created a whole new idea. What originally happened as a happy accident, has now given me some "fun" back in the kitchen. I decided to challenge myself to use up any and all leftovers, or extra food in the fridge and pantry to come up with new ideas/combinations and recipes. Pizza Omelette? or how about Pizza Grilled Cheese Sandwich? Both were surprisingly delicious. Another example of using up extra ingredients is the Chicken Schnitzel Marinara recipe. Not only does the food taste great, there is no waste - yayyy!
These two new ideas came about as a result of re-visiting my Gluten Free Pizza Calzone Recipe. We had extra "pizza stuffing" from the Calzone's in the fridge so this was how it was used up which turned into great flavor combinations.
For the Omelette simply whisk up two large eggs. Heat up a non stick pan on medium heat with a bit of Extra Virgin Olive Oil. Pour in the egg mixture, turning the pan to evenly distribute. Once the omelette has cooked for a few minutes, dollop in desired amount of the "Pizza stuffing".
Flip 1/2 the omelette over to cover the pizza sauce and press down to spread the pizza sauce throughout the omelette. Continue to cook a few more minutes until cooked and filling is warmed and melting.
For the Pizza Grilled cheese, butter 2 slices of gluten free bread. Dollop/spread the pizza filling on the non buttered side, top with the other piece of bread and cook as you would a regular grill cheese sandwich. My dear husband fell in love with this one:
Two new meals using the same leftover ingredient, and how easy it is to make too!
