Leftovers — something everyone has and something that sometimes leaves us blank on how to use them up. Mom’s 1947 Culinary Arts Institute Encyclopedic Cookbook has a whole section dedicated just to leftovers.
Today is making Hot Sandwiches out of our leftovers. I do believe eating habits were different in the old days to have some of these leftovers or maybe that’s why there are leftovers!
1. Broiled hamburger steaks on round rolls, with chopped pickles, carrots, celery or radishes added to the meat before broiling.
2. Broiled pineapple with sliced hot chicken, turkey or duck on whole-wheat bread.
3. Broiled ham or sliced roast lamb with grilled pineapple on toasted English muffins.
4. Hot roast veal and grilled tomato on rye roll.
5. Grilled tomato with Cheddar cheese on rye toast.
6. Hot smoked tongue (???) with fried apples on toasted English muffins.
7. Scrambled eggs with minced ham, dried beef, liver sausage, pork sausage, sliced frankfurters, salmon, smoked fish, cheese, tomatoes or mixed vegetables.
8. Broiled meat loaf on toast with gravy.
9. Broiled hash on toast with coleslaw.
10. Mashed baked beans with chili sauce and chopped pickle on toasted Boston Brown Bread.
11. Minced chicken livers and giblets with chopped bacon on toast.
Do you have favorite hot sandwiches that you pull the leftovers out to make? I’d love to know!

I believe tongue was a pretty common meat in the 50’s and 60’s. I remember reading about it in some Beverly Cleary books as a child, but I’ve never once seen it for sale. Thankfully. lol A lot of these sound quite tasty.

I take leftover chicken, beef or pork and shred it up an cook up some onion and add barbecue sauce( if you make your own sauce that would be even better) an put on a nice kaiser roll. If you have leftover coleslaw that goes on top of the meat mixture. yummy. That is what I did last night.

Wow, haven’t thought of tongue in ages, now two references in one week! Pan fried tongue slices, grilled onion, mustard on pumpernickel. Favorite hot sandwich: toasted english muffin spread with mayo, topped with sardines, sliced tomato, and grated cheese, then broiled until cheese melts.
