Leftover Bolognese Recipe
Spaghetti bolognese goes in the hall of fame with a select few dishes, that taste just as good if not better the day after. Just the way all those beautiful flavours are soaked up overnight. The flavour deepens and intensifies. These sliders are super duper simple, nothing fancy, just a neat way to serve up leftover bolognese. PLUS they truly are delicious. PLUS PLUS you’re more than likely to have most, if not all of the ingredients on hand.
How long does Bolognese keep?
If it’s covered properly I usually keep in the fridge for 3-4 days. You can also freeze it and that’ll keep up to a month.
How to reheat Bolognese?
If it’s from the fridge I recommend frying it over a low-medium heat until piping hot throughout. You can also microwave, but it won’t cook through as evenly. If it’s from the freezer I recommend bring it to room temp and then frying in a pan until piping hot. Or you can do the same and finish in the microwave.
So let’s talk leftover bolognese sliders shall we. I used to just heat up the leftovers the next day and pop some new spaghetti in. But you know, variation makes the world go round and it got me thinking what goes with bolognese instead of pasta? Voila – leftover bolognese sliders.
I know some of you are screaming at the screen ‘they ain’t no sliders, that’s garlic bread with bolognese plonked on top’ and yes, you’re right. But sliders have more of a ring to them wouldn’t you say?
