I have a few recipes that are excellent for using up leftovers. This is a great one I came up with just for that purpose…
This recipe is very flexible, you can pretty much use whatever you have leftover in your fridge. Beans (any kind, even re-fried), rice, onions, peppers, corn, chicken, beef or pork. Salsa, cream cheese, plain yogurt, shredded cheese. The list goes on…
These are the ingredients I used in this Stromboli:
Thin and crispy refrigerated pizza dough
Leftover ground beef
Plain Greek yogurt
Throw all your ingredients in a bowl and mix it up!
Don’t forget the seasonings:
Lay out the pizza dough and spread your filling mixture out evenly. Top the filling with a bit more cheese.
Roll it up and place it on a greased cookie sheet, seam side down. Using a serrated knife, cut a few slits in the top to reduce pressure when cooking. Cook in a preheated oven at 400 degrees for about 20 minutes. After 20 minutes, you may want to cover it with foil to prevent further browning then cook for another 5 to 15 minutes.
I will be linking up to some of the linky parties listed here.
