Leftovers better than the original?

Grilled some NY strips last night with baked potatoes and it was quite good, but trying to figure out what do do with one leftover steak I had a great idea. Why not toss some red peppers, onions and a little seasoning (salt, pepper, crushed pepper flakes and celery salt) with the thinly sliced steak, a slice of Havarti and throw the whole works onto a soft toasted Ciabatta? So that's what I did. Along with fried baked potato it was surprisingly better than the original dinner last night.

My question is: have you ever fixed leftovers that were better than the original dish? And what was it?
