Best hot foods eaten cold?

So since i was a kid, i've always liked leftovers, especially from a restaurant or something like that. i would eat it cold, the next day or something and it would taste so good. some of my favorites:

1. BK Whoppers
2. penne ala vodka
3. pizza

I used to like cold steak. Now, being a glutton, I never have any left over.

Actually, on the odd occasion that I do have leftover steak, I'll usually slice it and heat it up along with some eggs.

Pizza, fried chicken are pretty standard.

The Whopper sounds gross cold when the grease is solid.

Turkey from Thanksgiving is my #1. Turkey sandwiches the next day are the best.

Iíll also agree that fried chicken is pretty good as well.

As a kid I used to love cold pizza but as I got older I found that reheating it was better.

Pizza is the main one I can think of thatís as good cold as hot. I actually donít feel like most pizza heats up as well after being cold. I guess fried chicken is alright cold too. Same with chicken nuggets/strips.

Used to like cold fried chicken but don't anymore. Pizza is an obvious one. I also like cold spaghetti, but you have to thoroughly mix the noodles and the sauce together before it is put in the fridge. I also tend to eat most forms of leftover Chinese food cold.

Re: Best hot foods eaten cold?

It's not that I "like" or "prefer" it this way, but I'd rather eat cold fried chicken and steak than heat it up again. I've tried everything from heating chicken in the oven open, wrapped in foil, heating it in a pan, etc. It's never right. Heating it in the oven wrapped in foil is best, but still it's more of a "too much" thing to me. And I don't know how to reheat steak without cooking it past medium rare... so I just eat those two things cold, or at least room temperature, if I think about it in advance.

Cold pizza is something I used to love. Not so much any more. One thing I CANNOT stand is leftover Chinese food. I've also tried reheating that every way I can think of, and it just doesn't work (I think it's the broccoli). I've taken to ordering the combos from our Chinese restaurant 'cos I can eat the whole thing in one sitting and not have leftovers at all.

Nice to know I’m not the only one who thinks Whoppers are good after a night in the fridge!

For those hard to reheat items, an air fryer actually works pretty good on most things.

Re: Best hot foods eaten cold?

None. I like foods that are supposed to be eaten hot, HOT, and cold foods COLD. Cold Pizza? Cold chicken? Cold *whoppers*, or (gasp!) cold steak??!! Yuck, yuckity, yucky.

Hamburger has grease. When grease turns old, it turns white and gross. Cook some bacon and look at the pan when it's cold.

Re: Best hot foods eaten cold?

Eating cold Whoppers sounds absolutely disgusting!

I prefer a lot of vegetables cold. Iíll eat cauliflower, broccoli, and carrots any day before I ate them hot.
