What do you do with your day after brunch and leftovers? After cooking all day, I have no intentions to make a huge beautiful brunch. Don't get me wrong I want a beautiful brunch, but I want it easy and not a lot of work. So you bet I'm not going to be standing there dunking, soaking, and grilling up yummy pieces of bread for french toast. But I can manage to throw some cubes of bread together with ham (or turkey - I tend to save the turkey for my omelet or frittata) and bake up a French Toast Casserole.

To continue our French inspired brunch theme. Let's talk an amazing sandwich covered in cheese and topped with an egg or not! I LOVE cheese!! I said it, I’m a cheese freak (and yes my name is Bre also a cheese). Anyways, this amazing sandwich is great for any meal, but especially day after brunch. It’s awesome with turkey, even better with ham and if you don’t like the egg from Madame, hold it off and make it Croque Monsieur. I love to add spinach, mushrooms, tomato, or even avocado when I make it without the egg. Any way you slice it this brunch fav is one of my faves!
Moving onto lunch or dinner, this is a must have in my house. You can thank my mom, Patti, for this yummy remix recipe. Though I have added my own tweaks through the years it all started with her. Turkey makes a great add to anything that you would normally put chicken in, especially pasta. We love pasta, like for real who doesn't? But in all seriousness, I love making this Turkey Tetrazzini and my Turkey Alfredo Bake with penne noodle, alfredo sauce, capers, and diced shallots topped with 6 cheese italian blend. Any way you do it, it’s a delicious way to remix both turkey and rolls, add a side of leftover veggies and you’ve got a great remix meal.
Serve with leftover green beans, cranberry sauce, and rolls. Then have some Sweet Potato Casserole leftovers for dessert!
Back in the day when I lived with my roomie Jennie, in Lincoln Park (downtown Chicago), I loved to get creative in the kitchen and feed us and our friends. Not all the recipes turned out awesome, but my stuffed peppers were the bomb. This twist on those peppers is just as good, and super easy. Just combine in a bowl, fill, bake, and eat.
