Thanksgiving was really nice but not as many people showed up as we were expecting, so I have a lot of turkey leftover. The side dishes are left over, too, but they are easier to deal with than the big chunks of turkey meat. I can make soup and get rid of most of the vegetables. But there are only so many turkey sandwiches that I can stand before the thought of more turkey just makes me ill.
On today’s sandwich, which I hope will be the last turkey sandwich in a very long time for me, I just put a slice of Swiss cheese and some thin slices of Vidalia onion and a nice spread of mayonnaise on the bread with the sliced turkey. I considered grilling the sandwich so the cheese would melt, but the bread was so fresh and soft that I didn’t want to ruin the bread by grilling it.
Yesterday’s sandwich was totally different. I didn’t use cheese at all, and I put a layer of leftover stuffing on the meat, then I smeared a thin coat of jellied cranberry sauce on the bread instead of mayonnaise. It turned out really tasty, but I have had plenty of turkey to last me a long while.
