They say nothing is better than a home cooked meal. Clearly, those people have never had pizza the next day out of the refrigerator for breakfast. If you don't know, now you know. Breakfast pizza is somehow even better than fresh-served-for-dinner pizza, and if you think that's the only good leftovers, you're missing out, as evidenced by the entries below.


Reddit user, u/keepitstrizz, wanted to know what's best the day after when they asked:

What meal makes the best leftovers?

Clearly Both Way Are Right

Lasagna.

It's great right out of the oven, but it's even better after it has a chance to set up in the fridge overnight.

BOOM! Chili Anything.

Chili, you can put chili on almost anything.

Fries boom now chili fries,

Hot dog now it's a chili dog

Let The Mixture, Pardon The Pun, "Stew" For A Bit

Most soups and stews. 24 hours gives them time to gel together.

Soups and stews are always much more flavorful and delicious on day two.

Doesn't Even Need The Microwave

Pizza and Lasagna.

Honestly, their leftoverability is amazing.

A Truly Colorful Way Of Putting It

Curries! All curries develop flavor only the next day.

Being_grateful

Curry the day it's made is good. Curry the next day though? Orgasmic.

Superior On Reheat

Hands down. Chinese food.

The reason is when the dish is sitting in the fridge, the dish proceeds to soak up all the sauces and flavor. When it is reheated, the food has a almost better then fresh flavor, if not better then the first meal.

To Be Fair, Everything Is Better With An Egg On Top

Red beans and rice is great for breakfast the next day, especially with a fried egg on top

aurora4847

I've eaten a lot of leftover red beans. I've never heard of a fried egg on it though.

One To Do, One Not To Do

Pot Roast.

Definitely.

And I know it's not what you asked but fettucine alfredo makes terrible leftovers! the cream and cheese like separates when you reheat and it just isnt right anymore.

Good As New

Beef stroganoff, if you use ground beef, the noodles and meat heat up so well they basically taste as good as new.

A Good Feeling To Last For Days

Pozole!

My mom always makes it in a huge pot, even though there's only 4 (sometimes 5) of us.

It usually lasts us 3 days as dinner, and it's always better the next day.

*leaves to get cake

cake

pantsthatlast

This is so true. Bake a cake and eat a slice that day and it's okay. Let it sit out at room temp overnight and something magical happens between the soft cake and icing. I can't even have it in my house I'll eat it all!

Multi-Use Meats Are The Best

Pulled pork or pulled chicken.

I usually make a whole bunch of it at once, eat some and then use the rest over the next few days in a variety of ways. Sandwiches, tacos, on pizza, in casseroles, or just straight up.

There are few things more satisfying than a crisp $20 bill. Well, maybe a crisp $100 bill.

But twenty big ones can get you pretty far nonetheless.

Whether it's tucked firmly in a birthday card, passing from hand to hand after a knee-jerk sports bet, or going toward a useful tool, the old twenty dollar bill has been used for countless purposes.

I realize that school safety has been severely compromised and has been under dire scrutiny over the past decade and of course, it should be. And when I was a student, my safety was one of my greatest priorities but, some implemented rules under the guise of "safety" were and are... just plain ludicrous. Like who thinks up some of these ideas?

Redditor u/Animeking1108 wanted to discuss how the education system has ideas that sometimes are just more a pain in the butt than a daily enhancement... What was the dumbest rule your school enforced?

One of the golden rules of life? Doctors are merely human. They don't know everything and they make mistakes. That is why you always want to get another opinion. Things are constantly missed. That doesn't mean docs don't know what they're doing, they just aren't infallible. So make sure to ask questions, lots of them.

Redditor u/Gorgon_the_Dragon wanted to hear from doctors about why it is imperative we always get second and maybe third opinions by asking... Doctors of Reddit, what was the worse thing you've seen for a patient that another Doctor overlooked?

When we think about learning history, our first thought is usually sitting in our high school history class (or AP World History class if you're a nerd like me) being bored out of our minds. Unless again, you're a huge freaking nerd like me. But I think we all have the memory of the moment where we realized learning about history was kinda cool. And they usually start from one weird fact.

Here are a few examples of turning points in learning about history, straight from the keyboards of the people at AskReddit.

U/Tynoa2 asked: What's your favourite historical fact?
