A.V. Perkins, writing at Blavity, took leftover Christmas ham, a few items she had in the pantry, seasoned it up, warmed it all on the stove and then piled it between some tortillas and cheese in the waffle iron. The final result? The mouthwatering plate you see in her photo above.

She also explained that while the waffle iron is ideal for something like this, you could just as easily grill your leftover-packed quesadillas to get the same result. If you don’t have ham kicking around in your fridge, leftover dressing, or just about any other protein would work just as well — and after all, if you do have leftovers in your fridge from the holidays still, it’s definitely time you use them up, if they’re still good.
