What is your favorite way to eat thanksgiving leftovers?
I’ve already admitted that turkey and mashed potatoes aren’t my favorite foods, but I’ve got memories of waking up in Milwaukee on Friday morning, making turkey sandwiches with iceberg and mayo on little potato buns before heading out for some Christmas shopping. I loved those little sandwiches.
Of course now a days, we’ve got exotic, exciting ways to enjoy those leftovers and I must say I’m more interested in some of these leftover ideas than the actual thanksgiving meal itself. Maybe I’ll take some of that leftover turkey after all….
And if all you really want is a sandwich, try these twists on the turkey sandwich from Rachael Ray!
- Creamy-Crunchy Sammy: Drizzle EVOO on 2 whole grain bread slices and toast them; spread on soft goat cheese and layer with thinly sliced turkey, pears and radishes.
- Honey-Mustard Brie Melt: Toast an english muffin, then spread with honey-mustard sauce. Layer with a couple of turkey pieces, sliced tomato and brie cheese. Place the open-face sandwich under the broiler until the cheese is melted.
- Spinach-Artichoke Grilled Cheese: Butter 2 slices of white bread and fill with turkey, gruyere cheese, spinach leaves and chopped marinated artichoke hearts. Grill in a skillet or panini press until golden-brown.
