4 Delicious Dishes Made with Corned Beef Leftovers


Everyone have their corned beef and cabbage for St. Patrick’s Day? We love corned beef and cabbage and I buy 4-6 briskets when they are on sale this time of year. You don’t need to just have brisket. The leftovers can be made into so many things. Sometimes I will even cook an extra brisket…

Reuben Roll Ups

You can change them with the holidays by…

Corned Beef Potatoes Au Gratin


So I looked up what Au Gratin meant when I was making this dish. Sprinkled with bread crumbs, grated cheese, eggs and or butter. So, I think this dish kind of qualifies as most of that. It has cheese and butter.  We will just go with it. I usually try to cook large pieces of…
