It's Been a Month of Leftovers and Only One New Recipe - Easy Canned Oyster Sliders with Coleslaw

While I tried several recipes, most need a redo. But, I really enjoyed using three cheeses: mozzarella, feta, and parmesan together in many ways.

Been living off of a variety of leftovers and making quesadillas, grilled cheese sandwiches, wedge & chicken salads, potatoes, meatballs, sliders, chicken soup, rice, cabbage, breakfast & desserts, and experimenting with freezing items, and more. See list below.

Quesadillas
  • Peanut butter and apple slices
  • Three-cheeses & mushrooms

Grilled Cheese Sandwiches
  • Three cheeses & tomato
  • Three cheeses & mushrooms
  • Three cheeses & avocado slices

Wedge Salads
  • Topped three cheeses, grated carrot, sliced olives, avocado slices, tomato slices, onion slices
  • Topped with leftover shrimp in sauce
  • with a mustard vinaigrette
  • with cucumber-yogurt dressing

Potatoes
  • Baked potato
  • Potato cakes

Meatballs
  • with pasta

Meatballs came out good but I want to redo the recipe.

Sliders
  • Canned oyster sliders with coleslaw (See recipe below.)
  • Meatball sliders

Slaw & Chicken Salad
  • Chicken salad with rice, lettuce, tomato, grated carrot, diced onion, olives, & cucumber-yogurt dressing. Used frozen diced chicken.
  • Coleslaw

Cucumber-yogurt dressing is good but needs work.


Chicken Soup

Made enough for 9 servings but recipe needs a redo.

Spanish Rice
  • Spanish rice and beans
  • Spanish rice, beans and fried egg

Fried Cabbage and Noodles
  • Plain
  • Topped with leftover carryout shrimp dish

Breakfast and Desserts
  • Apple Betty - failed but gave me an idea for making candy
  • Breakfast Banana Split: Banana, oatmeal, yogurt with nuts & honey
  • PB & yogurt popsicles
  • Whipped topping -- failed
PB & yogurt popsicles came out good but because I made multiple adjustments, I lost track of them, needs a redo.


Experiments
  • Freezing cabbage
  • Freezing chicken

Tried defrosted chicken in chicken salad. It was good but maybe would be better heated up a bit.
Blanched and froze 1/4 cabbage and now the....

Freezer is full.
