The Ultimate Leftover Thanksgiving Sandwich

Total Time
Prep 5 mins
Cook 0 mins

This is the version most of our family enjoys every Thanksgiving. There are variations depending on preferences (for instance DH won't eat mustard or mayo - I know weird, huh?) but I am posting the full nine yards and the way I like it. Adjust according to your tastes,but try it this way if you can,it is DA BOMB! ** I have used mashed potatoes in addition to the stuffing; and try it all wrapped up in a large flour tortilla that you grill closed.... (I'd forgo the mayo and mustard though.... DONT leave the cranberry off... it's the highlight!). So many yummy ways to revisit your leftovers! I have one posted for Christmas/Easter Ham dinner too... YUMMY!

  5. Enjoy (grab a napkin and maybe a fork in case it gets messy!) ;).

Excellent! A "must try"! My preference would be American cheese, but inanycase, you will enjoy this sandwich. Pass the chips! Thanks for the recipe.
