Lovely Leftovers

I was sent home from a Thanksgiving Family dinner to which we were

invited as friends, with a bag of leftover swiss chard that had been

braised with pine-nuts and spicy chipotle. I figured it would be a

great filling for an omelette the next day for brunch. I decided to

have fun and experiment with fancy presentation. I cut 6 disks from

the bread I had bought with the intention of making a

turkey-accompanying 'bread sauce' (very British). I didn't get round

to making the sauce, so the bread was left over too. I lightly toasted

the disks. I cut 4 of the same-sized circles from the swiss chard

omelette and sandwiched them together with crispy fried strips of

bacon. I topped each little tower with grated gruyere and then grilled

until bubbling. How cute-looking is that? It tasted pretty good too!
