Thanksgiving Leftovers

I'm a bit of a purist when it comes to putting together Thanksgiving leftovers. I eat my Pilgrim sandwich the old-fashioned wayturkey, stuffing, cranberry sauce, and gravy in between two pieces of a white doughy dinner roll. (Extra gravy on the side for dipping.) I think it tastes better almost as good as the meal itself.

However, there is more than one way to slice a turkey. Here are some delicious ideas for your Thanksgiving leftovers.
  1. To the above sandwich, add mashed potatoes.
  2. Turkey and Swiss Panini: Turkey, cranberry sauce, chopped pecans, fig or apricot jam, Dijon mustard, bread and butter.
  3. Stuffed Croissants: Turkey, mashed potatoes, stuffing, green beans, mashed yams, and cranberry sauce.
  4. Thanksgiving Grilled Cheese: Turkey, pepperjack cheese, provolone cheese, homemade cranberry sauce, bread and butter.
  5. Turkey Hand Pies: Turkey, stuffing, cranberry sauce, gravy, pie crusts, egg.
  6. Waffle Melts: Turkey, avocado, brie, cranberry sauce, waffles (bacon and eggs optional).
