What to make with leftovers

I just bought myself a George Foreman grill and it has opened up a whole load more of cooking possibilities, mainly toasting but still very exciting. My friend Lizzie said I should write a cookbook on what to do with what's left in the fridge and today was one of those moments where I had a bunch of random leftover stuff and managed to make an epic lunch. So here is my first addition to making lovely leftovers.

1 wrap or baguette/pitta/sliced bread
A handful of salad leaves
Half and onion
Bits of leftover veg, red pepper, aubergine, courgette, tomato etc
Any fresh herbs
leftover meat, chicken, lamb, beef, ham, bacon
Any melty cheese
The moist maker, sour cream, creme fraiche, tomato sauce, pickle, mayo, mustard, pesto, chili sauce, yogurt

So get all your random bits from your fridge out together.
Fry up any meat, vegetables, onions until soft, go crazy and add some chili flakes, spices or left over pesto or sauce.
Put your wrap or whatever vessel you have chosen on a plate and chuck in whatever you have chosen. If using a wrap, tightly fold it up closing both ends and put the seal face down on the grill and close. When its golden and a bit crispy you are ready to roll, if you have any leftover salad serve that on the side and Voila.
