Create a Casserole

Soups are a great way to recreate and use up leftovers.
So are casseroles.
Below is a basic plan for creating casseroles with what you have.

Create a Casserole:

1 cup of a main ingredient such as leftover chicken, ham, turkey, tuna, roast beef
1 cup of a second ingredient such as onion, celery, mushrooms, vegetables
1-2 cups of a starchy ingredient such as potatoes, pasta, rice, make sure they are cooked or the potatoes are thinly sliced to cook quickly
A binder such as white sauce, sour cream, canned cream soup
A goodie such as nuts, water chestnuts, roasted red peppers (optional)
A topping such as crushed potato chips, cheese, buttered bread crumbs

Mix your desired combination of ingredients.  If too dry, mix in some milk, broth, or wine.  Put in a buttered casserole dish.  Add your topping of choice.  Bake at 350 until hot and bubbly, about 45 minutes.
