Left over jambalaya

Anything intersting to do with leftover jambalaya?

    I've made a breakfast side with leftover risotto. I formed patties with the rice, dusted with flour and seared both sides in a non-stick pan until a crust formed. Served with a poached egg, sausage and bacon. Very good.

      Make a soup out of it. Take a good chicken stock/broth, thicken it a tad if you like, then stir in the jambalaya. It's got a lot of ingredients that go into soup anyway. Toss in some fresh herbs or start off sweating a few veggies to give it whatever extra flavor you might want.

      You could even use a cream base for this perhaps.

        Use it as stuffing for turkey or chicken.

            Oh yeah! No need to stop with a just chicken when it can be wrapped in proscuitto. Great idea.

            And maybe top it with a fresh slice of bufala mozzarella? And strew some tasso around the whole thing...

            Oh God, I'm drooling on my arm.
