Jambalaya is a great way of using lots of different leftover meats. The smoked sausage was from the world food asle at the supermarket, it was 50p. You could even use meat left over from your roast dinner, such as chicken or pork. If your meat is precooked, add it at the end. It sticks to the pan as its cooking so make sure you constantly stir it.
