Leftover Holiday Turkey Sandwich
If you have leftover turkey from Thanksgiving and your belly is full from the richness of the day's heavy meal, here's a refreshing sandwich that I threw together from leftovers and it's is wonderful!
There are no exact measurements, and you can change it up according to what you have on hand to make it your own. But the basic idea is to use some of the leftovers from your meal while giving them a new twist.
YOU WILL NEED:
2 slices of a good bread
Butter (for frying)
Leftover turkey ,sliced or shredded (enough to cover one slice)
2 T. (or more)Cranberry sauce (preferably the recipe with fruits/nuts added, but can also use whole cranberry sauce from the can)
Spinach leaves (or your choice lettuce/greens)
Pepper Jack Cheese, shredded or slice (or your favorite cheese)
1-2 tsp. of a flavored mustard (honey, Dijon,etc.) OR mix 1 tsp. Ranch dressing with 1 tsp. yellow mustard, like I did OR if you prefer mayo over mustard, use it.
*I used a skillet, but you may also use a Panini Press or George Foreman grill for this recipe.
Butter two slices of bread.Spread mustard on top of one slice. Place one slice, buttered side down in skillet over med. heat. Add turkey, cranberry sauce, cheese, spinach and top with other slice. Press down and cook till golden brown on one side. Flip and cook golden brown. Remove from skillet.
Serve with a small salad for a not-so-heavy, but delicious lunch.
