Thanksgiving Day Leftover Thursday Recipe

Since y'all have probably already enjoyed your Thanksgiving and I am enjoying my first Southern Thanksgiving in South Carolina, I thought what better way to end Thanksgiving Thursday Recipes with a Leftovers Recipe.

I love Leftover Turkey Sandwiches! This is a simple, great recipe for that extra Turkey, but is also easy to recreate with simple ingredients. Below are pictures of this recipe with some substitutions if you traveled like we did and don't have leftovers.

First, throw a few slices of bread into the Toaster.

Next, pull out the Stove Top Stuffing. Stove Top Stuffing is one of the most versatile staples you could have in your pantry. Follow the directions on the box, which essentially calls for boiling 1 1/2 cups of water and 4 tablespoons of water. Once boiling, add the contents of the box, turn off the heat and stir. Cover and let stand 5 minutes.

Then, spread the stuffing on one side of your toast, pile on your leftover Turkey or Turkey lunch meat (which is pictures below) and a slice of Swiss Cheese.

Put it in the toaster and turn on the Broiler. We actually toasted ours because we don't have a broiler option on our toaster.

Look how great that melted cheese looks! Once the sandwich comes out of the toaster put on a dollop of Mom's Fresh Cranberry Relish or the canned Cranberry Sauce (whichever you prefer).

I can't wait to dig in!

And to accompany the sandwich, we made Sweet Potato Fries. Simply slice a Sweet Potato into long slivers like fries, put on a cookie sheet with olive oil, cinnamon, salt and pepper and put in the Broiler for about 15 minutes. Check on them often! We forgot about ours, so they were a little burnt, but oh so delicious!
