R,S,C ~A little differently

Many of us will celebrate Easter this Sunday which can only mean one thing for Monday; leftovers.

Your challenge this week; take a few ingredients that are the usual leftover suspects and send in your favorite recipe for Easter Leftovers.

If you don't celebrate or go elsewhere for the day, here are a few ideas to spur you on:

ham, pork roast, turkey or lamb
green beans
asparagus (never a leftover in my house!)

Everyone has something different so please feel free to use whatever foods you usually have leftover.

After they are all mailed in I'll post them and that way we will all have some (hopefully) new and delicious ideas!

Here are two recipes as examples. One for all those pesky hard-boiled eggs (nope, not egg salad!) and one for ham and asparagus leftovers.

Creamed Eggs

Add 2 to 4 hard cooked eggs, cut into quarters,
to 1 cup medium white sauce. Serve hot over toast or
biscuits or rice.

Add chopped bacon, ham or sausage, green pepper or onion also.

Impossible Ham & Asparagus Pie

2 c smoked ham, fully cooked, cut into cubes
1 1/2 c swiss cheese,shredded
2 c cooked asparagus-cut up and drained
2 onions, green, sliced
1 1/2 c Milk
3 eggs
3/4 c Bisquick
1/4 t salt
1/8 t pepper

Heat oven to 400. Grease pie plate. Sprinkle ham, 1 c. cheese, the
asparagus and onions in plate. Beat milk, eggs, baking mix, salt and
pepper til smooth, 15 sec. in blender at high speed. Pour into plate.
Bake til knife inserted in center comes out clean. 40-45 min.
sprinkle with 1/2 c. cheese. Cool 5 min. 6-8 servings.
