Meal Trails

A meal trail is a series of meals that are connected by a common ingredient, usually a protein or a sauce (but not always). A meal trail is usually started by bulk cooking the initial meal and using the leftovers to create a series of meals subsequent meals that can be served in a row or on various days over the next week or two. 


Unlike leftovers, a meal in a trail is not just a reheated version of last night’s dinner. It’s a brand new recipe made easier with some pre-cooked ingredients. 

Many recipes on this blog are part of a meal trail and are noted as such.  If it’s a recipe that can be the ‘bulk cooked’ meal to start a trail, it will say that as well.
