Make Use Of Your Backyard BBQ Leftovers

fresh pork tacos

Today you are cooking for a crowd. Tomorrow you will have to deal with all of the leftovers. Instead of wasting all of that delicious cuisine, make use of it with these leftover ideas!

Protein Croutons

Do you have plenty of meat leftover from grilling out? Whether it’s chicken, steak, or burgers, chop it up into small pieces and throw it on top of a salad for a boost of protein. If you’re not much of a salad fan, make an egg scramble with veggies, cheese, and the meat of your choice.

Corn on the Cob

There’s nothing better than grilled corn on the cob, and the day after it’s cooked, it tastes even better. If you’re in need of a hefty helping of veggies, these corn cakes with bacon, squash, and turmeric yogurt are easy peasy.

Chicken Salad

Chicken salad is a summertime favorite. If you grilled chicken and have plenty of leftovers, shred up the chicken for an easy chicken salad combination. All you need is some mayonnaise, celery, and optional additions like honey, grapes, and nuts. Enjoy this treat for lunch on a sandwich or with crackers for the rest of the week!


If the family enjoyed some celebratory pork BBQ for the Fourth, it’ll taste just as delicious shoved between some tortillas. Throw some leftover coleslaw and extra BBQ sauce on top. Serve with chips and salsa. Now, that’s a tasty Taco Tuesday.

Stir Fry

Tacos and stir fry are equally family favorites. If you have leftover chicken and veggies, throw them on a skillet, drizzle some teriyaki sauce on them, and enjoy a DIY hibachi dinner. If you want to get fancy, you can cook up some fried rice as well.
