Turn Brisket Into Breakfast with These Brand-New Recipes
Because leftover brisket should never go to waste.
Whether for Rosh Hashanah or a special occasion dinner, brisket is always a good idea. Tender and delicious, the meaty dish never fails to be the star of the show. But what do you do with the leftovers? You could reheat them in the microwave and eat the brisket as-is, but you run the risk of drying out the meat and losing that juicy flavor. So, follow our advice and transform your leftover brisket into an amazing and hearty breakfast with the recipes below.
A hash is always a great way to use up leftovers, especially since you don’t need a lot to make it! Just three slices of brisket add tons of meaty flavor to this sweet-and-savory hash, which is packed with autumnal flavor thanks to sweet potato, apple and red beets. We recommend using schmaltz instead of oil for extra flavor and crispiness, plus a dash of hot sauce for a little kick.
Taco lovers, this one’s for you. A sweet-and-smoky salsa turns leftover brisket into a juicy and delicious taco filling that’s only improved by adding soft scrambled eggs. Our secret for the best-ever breakfast tacos? Just before eating, add a handful of crushed potato chips for a delightful crunch and a zing of salt.
