Where: Salento What: Meatballs and leftover dinner rolls

Remake: Italy does France. Mix an egg with 1 teaspoon of ground cinnamon, 1 teaspoon vanilla extract and 1/4 cup milk, and coat the leftover bread. Cook on a skillet until both sides are lightly brown for easy French toast. Reheat and chop up the meatballs as a sausage substitute.

Where: Charles Plaza What: White rice

Remake: Toss the half–rate moo shu chicken that’s only passable when masked by Franzia’s Sunset Blush. Crack an egg over white rice, and stir over low heat until the egg begins to solidify. Season with salt and hot sauce.

Where: Tres Jalapeños What: Sopapilla

Remake: Glaze with butter and microwave. Top with fresh fruit and syrup (if you’re so inclined). At its best, breakfast should be synonymous with dessert, anyway.

If all else fails, Greek Lady delivers.
