Instant Pot Opelousas

Opelousas - a Southern Rice based dish, this one's made from leftover Ham and cooks up beautifully in the Instant Pot!

So you all know (if you follow me – and if you don’t, I’d love it if you would, here with email (on the right) or on facebook or twitter (on the left)) I cooked up a ham for Thanksgiving. And what a ham it was! The stunning and absolutely delish Biltmore House’s Tawny Baked Ham. It was just a half ham, but of course there were leftovers!

Easy Taco Skillet Dinner - Serve as is or tuck it into Tacos or Burritos. Quick, too.

Some of you might remember I made a one pan Porcupine Skillet Dinner a few weeks ago. It was surprisingly good. It inspired me to see if I could do the same thing with a Mexican style meal. And so my Easy Taco Skillet Dinner was born.

Drunken Fried Rice

Drunken Fried Rice - Yes there IS such a thing and thank goodness because it's amazing! Just like drunken noodles but use leftover rice.

Drunken Fried Rice! Yes, there is such a thing and I’m soooo happy to know it! See, my baby sis just told me she was having leftover take out Drunken Noodles for lunch and a craving hit. Maybe even a touch of jealously. But poor me, no takeout, no noodles in the cupboard. I was planning on making Fried Rice, though, and made extra rice last night with dinner just so I’d have rice ready.

Ham & Parmesan Risotto (Instant Pot or Stove Top)

Instant Pot + Stovetop instructions for a luscious Risotto made from leftovers. The Instant Pot makes the best no fuss, no stir Risotto in minutes.

I love me some Risotto – how ’bout you? It amazes me how you can take a simple ingredient like rice, add a glug of wine & a few gratings of cheese (plus a bit of this and that) and turn it into a gourmet meal – no make that a gourmet experience – because you get to drink the rest of the wine! Plus plus!
