National Clean Out Your Refrigerator Day

Did you know there’s a day devoted to cleaning out your refrigerator? As silly as it seems, this observation of fridge cleaning actually comes at just the right time. Your spring cleaning is long over and the fridge could probably use another go to make room for all the Thanksgiving provisions and leftovers that will soon be taking up space.

To help you clear your fridge, we’ve got some ideas for using up your Dream Dinners leftovers that will have your mouth watering more than just reheated last night’s dinner:

Meatloaf Milano with Mashed Potatoes: A slice of cold meatloaf is great as a sandwich layered on a toasted potato roll with a slice of sharp cheddar and a few bread and butter pickles. Top with crispy onions, such as French’s French Fried Onions to add a little crunch.

Baked Potato Chicken: Already a fall comfort food, this dish also makes a wonderful baked potato chicken soup. Just add enough chicken stock to cover the leftovers, bring to a boil, and simmer. Top each serving with a little extra cheese for a great lunch or second night dinner.

Kentucky Pork Chops: Leftover pork chops also make a delicious cold sandwich. A little sweet and spicy mustard and a slice of tomato on a bun or roll are all you need for an easy lunch.
