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.
