foodie fridays: leftover prime rib naan nachos with horseradish cream

Leftover Prime Rib Naan Nachos with Horseradish Cream


We meet again.

The last time we met I decided turkey and stuffing were meant to keep the holidays happy by going inside a golden, delicious pizza pull-apart bread. Even though I don’t exactly cheer for Team Leftover, I would gladly devour a pizza solely disguised as turkey round two.

But! What if I told you I think I have the pizza pull-apart bread beat? Every year, Mr. B and I are in charge of cooking Christmas dinner for my immediate family. We really enjoy cooking together, plus, it gives my parents a much-needed break!

Leftover Prime Rib Naan Nachos with Horseradish Cream

The main course changes depending on what we are craving, but I will say that prime rib makes an appearance more than ham, pork, or roast beef. There’s something about slow roasted prime rib rubbed with a combination of ground coffee and brown sugar that makes me instantly break into the Carlton happy dance.

Leftover Prime Rib Naan Nachos with Horseradish Cream

So, to keep the holiday train chugging along, I thought we could keep things simple, but tasty. That’s why I am madly crushing on these leftover prime rib on naan nachos with horseradish cream. Nachos just make the world a better place. Throw some prime rib on top and you’ll want to repeat the holidays.

And cue Tom Jones! “It’s not unusual to be loved by someone……”

    I do root for “team leftovers” (usually) and this recipe totally speaks to me. I’ve got a lot of leftover rib meat in the fridge and I was unsure what to do with…until now!

    WHOA. These look absolutely amazing, girl! Our family had prime rib over Christmas, but it definitely wasn’t as stellar as these. Love it!

    These are a leftover happy dance personified! Or epitomized? I suppose we probably shouldn’t turn the nachos into people…then we’d be cannibals.
