Thanksgiving Leftovers Sandwich

“Oh, give thanks to the Lord, for He is good! For His mercy endures forever.”

-Chronicles 16:34

Omgoodness those Thanksgiving leftovers! They are always so good the way they are but sometimes it’s nice to change it up a bit!!

This is a fun and easy recipe and I even added some healthy ingredients to ease your holiday eating conscience! 🙂

You will need:

-Leftover Turkey (the breast works the best)

-Leftover mashed potatoes

-Leftover gravy

-Cranberry sauce

-Spinach or any greens you have

-Ground black pepper

-Sliced cheese (I used Swiss)

-Sliced avocado

-A good thick bread of your choice

*Now you could make this in a sandwich press or in the oven but I made it kind of “manually” lol and it was delicious!!

Warm up turkey, gravy, and mashed potatoes in the microwave (in separate bowls). Toast your bread. Spread a layer of mashed potatoes on each bread slice and then a layer of gravy on top of that. On the bottom slice put a layer of avocado slices. Lay your spinach or greens on top of the avocado, then add the turkey. Now spread a good layer of cranberry sauce over the turkey (in my opinion the cranberry sauce is the key ingredient of this sandwich…just makes the flavor pop!). Grind your preferred amount of pepper onto the sandwich. Add a layer of the sliced cheese. Place the other slice of bread on top, mashed potato side down and give it a little press! Firmly hold the sandwich down on the plate and cut in half. And there it is!!! Yum!!

Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours! Enjoy!! 🙂
