Cook Once, Eat Twice

When you're roasting a chicken or braising a beef brisket, why not prepare extra so you can create more meals during the week. Each master recipe featured here yields a large batch, providing the foundation for satisfying dishes to come.

Suggested dishes that incorporate the leftovers are linked to each master recipe. For example, with roast chicken on hand, you can assemble a simple chicken and mango salad or cheesy quesadillas in no time. Beef brisket can be transformed into barbecued brisket sandwiches or a warming shepherd's pie. This time-saving technique of making extra portions gives you delicious options for future meals.
