Recipe of the Week: Leftover Turkey Sandwiches

November 25, 2011

Thanksgiving is a wonderful holiday and time of year when we give thanks for the many blessings in our lives. It is also a time to enjoy some of my favorite foods like mashed potatoes, gravy, and oven roasted Turkey…..uumm! And if you’re anything like me, that means you’ve spent your entire day, night and morning sneaking into the fridge to eat leftovers!

I think it’s pretty safe to say that everyone loves Thanksgiving leftovers, so here’s a quick recipe for Next-Day Turkey Sandwiches. They’re easy to make and so delicious – ENJOY!

Ingredients for 4 Sandwiches:

·         1 pound leftover turkey, sliced
·         1/4 cup chunky cranberry sauce
·         3 cups leftover bread stuffing or corn bread stuffing
·         8 slices white country bread
·         Salt and freshly ground pepper
·         Mayonnaise (optional)
·         1/2 cup winter squash puree


1.    Stack the turkey, cranberry sauce and stuffing on half of the bread slices and season with salt and pepper. Slather the remaining bread slices with mayonnaise and the squash puree, close the sandwiches and serve.

Pairing Suggestion: A simple, direct, fruity blush wine will stand up to the sweet and tart flavors in this sandwich. Try a chilled White Zinfandel from California.
