Breakfast Casserole

The easiest way to repurpose leftover meat into a spectacular new dish

If you're feeling lazy, here's an easy way to make the most out of leftover meat like turkey, ham, lechon, bacon or roasted chicken. You can repurpose any kind of leftover bread too. You can also bake it in individual ramekins or in a rectangular ovenproof glass dish.
