Everyone will be jealous of your lunch!
- Leftover Stuffing (works best if the stuffing is moist)
- Cranberry Sauce
- Leftover Turkey, sliced for sandwiches
Using a knife or sharp spoon, scoop out the inside of the top half of the loaf, leaving only a shell. Spread stuffing into this shell, replacing the scooped out bread. (about 1/4 to 1/2" of stuffing is usually perfect, but use whatever makes you happy!) Mix together mayonnaise and cranberry sauce in a small bowl.
(2 parts mayonnaise to every 1 part of cranberry) Spread this evenly on the bottom half of the bread. Top the cranberry-mayonnaise mixture with turkey slices. Drizzle the turkey with a light coating of gravy. (or a heavy one if you wish - what the heck, it's the holidays!) Top the sandwich with the stuffing-filled top loaf of bread.
A great way to use leftover turkey!
- 1 cup catsup
- 2 Tbsp. vinegar
- 1/4 cup water
- 2 Tbsp. brown sugar
- 1 Tbsp. Worcestershire or Soy sauce
- 1/4 cup b-b-q sauce-your choice
- 1/4 tsp. celery salt
- 1/4 tsp chili powder
- 1 cup tomato juice, or 1 can tomato soup
- 1 onion, chopped, (opt)
Mix all ingredients together and pour over turkey that has been roasted and either cut up or shredded. Heat before serving.
Note: This is a great recipe for the crock-pot and excellent for sandwiches for a large group. Double the recipe for a whole turkey.
