If you are anything like me, when you BBQ you go big.
If you are entertaining you always want to make sure that you have enough grub for everybody.
Even if you are just cooking for 2, BBQ usually involves slow smoking a Large piece of meat. Which ends up being way too much for just 2 people.
The question becomes "What to do with the leftover BBQ"
If we have a lot of leftovers, we like to vacuum seal and freeze some
in meal size amounts to be reheated later and added to;
pasta, rice, salad, tacos, chili, or whatever you have going on for a mid week dinner.
Sunday morning is one of my favorite times of the week,
after a BBQ Saturday.
The simple addition of leftover BBQ chicken, pulled pork, grilled veggies, or tri-tip mixed with eggs and cheese can make the perfect Sunday breakfast.
Leftover BBQ tri-tip Frittata
Simply mix beaten eggs with a small amount of milk. Add your leftover tri-tip, grilled peppers & onions, broccoli, or whatever you have. Mix together and pour into a greased cast iron pan.
Add a handful of your favorite cheese and place in the BBQ indirect, or in the oven at 350 deg for about 30 minutes until cooked through. Top with fresh sliced tomatoes and dig in.
Typically, even before I start BBQ'n,
I'm thinking about the Awesome leftover BBQ sandwich I will be grubb'n on the next day
I made 4 different sandwiches out of the same leftover BBQ Tri-tip
One Philly style,with grilled peppers and onions and Provolone
One Italian with home made marinara and mozzarella
One BBQ style, with grilled onions, roasted pablano peppers and BBQ sauce
And one French dip style, with horseradish and Au jus for dipping
I'm from California, and out here you learn pretty quick that damn near anything
can be folded up in a tortilla with some cheese, pico de gallo, avocado, hot sauce.........
and devoured on a regular basis!
