With all the time spent cooking for Thanksgiving, you’re probably going to be left eating turkey for the next fortnight. That’s not necessarily a bad thing. Especially when this sandwich, which makes use of all those leftovers, is as delicious as it is.
- 8 slices bread of your choice, toasted if desired
- 1 cup turkey breast, sliced
- 1 cup dark-meat turkey, shredded
- 2 cups assorted Thanksgiving leftovers (green beans, sweet potatoes, mashed potatoes or other sides), warmed
- 4 leaves lettuce
- 4 cups stuffing
- ½ cup mayonnaise
- ½ cup cranberry sauce
- ½ cup leftover gravy
- 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
- 4 teaspoons olive oil
- Kosher salt
- Freshly ground black pepper
- In a small bowl, whisk together the mayonnaise and cranberry sauce. Set aside.
- Place the shredded dark-meat turkey and gravy in a saucepan and gently heat over medium-low, stirring occasionally, until warmed through.
- Cook the stuffing in a non-stick skillet until browned and crisp.
- In the same skillet, melt the butter over medium-low heat until foamy. Add the sliced turkey breast, flipping occasionally until warmed through, and season with salt and pepper.
- Spread 2 tablespoons of the cranberry mayonnaise onto a slice of bread and layer your toppings. Spread more cranberry mayonnaise on the other slice of bread before closing the sandwich and cutting in half.
