There are two kinds of leftover meals: the boring kind you eat to avoid wasting food and the kind that tastes better when reheated (or eaten cold) than it does fresh out of the oven. This list is about the latter, the best kinds of leftover foods you're dying to snack on the day after you cooked a big batch of the stuff or brought some home in a doggy bag. It's hard to say why, but the day after you cook these types of foods, the flavor somehow improves.

Vote up the leftover meals on this list that are your go-to snacks the next day at work. If we've forgotten any of your favorite leftovers, feel free to add them to this list.
