Whatever to do with all those pesky Passover leftovers? I know it’s a question that keeps most of you up at night. However, I do hate to throw out good food, especially when it’s tasty.
Just such a situation arose for me recently, as I prepared enough apple and onion kugel for the Ten Lost Tribes and only me and my wife showed. I promise, making too much food is not a problem for me (snork).
Anyway, no one wants to keep eating the same thing like some kind of culinary treadmill so we did a little improvising. I reheated the kugel with an apricot-thyme cream sauce; then dished it up with some lightly boiled asparagus – one of the finest of spring flavors. Oh yeah, and put an egg on it. What? You can put an egg on anything. I swear. It’s delicious. Look, just try it. It seriously brings a rich creaminess and bold pops of color to practically anything. Except my cat. But now I know.
(That's a tomato salad in the back with grated frozen blue cheese on top a la Michael Chiarello.)
Well here’s to fighting the good leftover fight. It’s a never ending saga, but we’ve got to stick with it people. Cheers.
