These days have been some great ones recently.
I have forbidden myself from doing any work, so I have gotten in some good relaxation time. And on top of that, I have been in hog heaven (or turkey heaven?) with all of my Thanksgiving leftovers. Turkeys need to be roasted more often just for the sake of leftovers.
If you are looking for some ways to use up your leftovers, you have come to the right place. I have been doing some experimentation with my leftovers, but I always find myself gravitating back toward the sandwich. There are so many possibilities with sandwiches.
Stuffing? Sandwich. Cranberry sauce? Sandwich. Green bean casserole? Sandwich. If you have a question about what to do with Thanksgiving leftovers, the answer should always be: put it on a sandwich. So many choices, yet leftovers always seem to run out before I can get to make all my concoctions.
If you are looking for a sandwich that uses turkey but with a less Thanksgiving twist, here is a great sandwich for you. You get juicy turkey, crisp apples, melty cheese, and rich almond butter. It is wonderful.
