Best Thanksgiving Leftover Sandwich Ever

This is seriously the best Thanksgiving leftover sandwich ever! Every year we plan for leftovers by getting a really big turkey. After all the craziness of cooking Thanksgiving dinner, I prefer to take a few days off from cooking. Planning for leftovers means that I don’t have to cook.

Best Thanksgiving Leftover Sandwich Ever - Turkey Brie & Cranberry Sauce

Best Thanksgiving Leftover Sandwich Ever

My family tends to prefer not to eat too many meals of cold turkey and leftovers, so I need to get a little bit creative with how I cook present them. This leftover sandwich is a big hit and is also fairly flexible. We use leftover turkey, brie, whole cranberry sauce and sandwich bread. However, you could easily substitute jellied cranberry sauce and a different cheese like cheddar if you prefer. If you have rolls leftover from Thanksgiving dinner, you could certainly slice those and have the sandwich on rolls. If you have a panini machine, turn it into a panini. If not, you can have it like an adult grilled cheese sandwich like we do. Use gluten free bread if desired.
