If you haven’t already noticed, you’ll soon see a pattern from Chef Christophe’s videos and blogs. He loves to use leftover scraps, more like he doesn’t like to waste food, and all of us from Christophe’s To Go, think it’s important to share those same values with our customers. This post will be the first of many that will highlight unique ways to use leftovers. For this article, we couldn’t think of anything more suitable for summer leftovers than hamburgers!

Or, maybe you keep them for yourself but they end up getting thrown away or given to your dog.
