My Favorite Thanksgiving Leftovers Meal


What do you do with all those Thanksgiving leftovers? One of my favorite meals all year is the Thanksgiving turkey sandwich I look forward to in the days after Thanksgiving.  I toast my favorite whole-grain bread and spread a thin layer of dijon mustard, pile on that delicious white meat, add a nice slab of gruyere cheese, some red or green leaf lettuce or even watercress, and voila!

This leftovers sandwich is simple, fresh and delicious — and pretty healthy too after the excesses of Thanksgiving Day!  I sometimes think I prefer it to Thanksgiving dinner itself.

My kids adore this sandwich too, and I get fewer complaints than I usually do around the dining table!  For them, I add some carrot sticks as a garnish and a few chips.  The one problem with this is that the regular turkey I eat all year round seems so bland compared with this delicious fresh turkey.
