Open Face Thanksgiving Sandwich- One of Matt's Faves
This past Sunday I made Matt and I a little (sort of) Thanksgiving meal...
Matt loves "Thanksgiving leftover Sandwiches". My mom found this great recipe a couple years back. That year we made the sausage stuffing from scratch. Now for a quick meal I cheat and use the box stuff.. but hey it is sooo good!
This is hardly an original recipe, you probably do this w/ all of your leftovers anyways.. but just in case.
Bread (thicker slices)
turkey (thicker slices also)- I just went to the deli, picked out a kind that looked good (cranberry-orange!) and asked him to slice it thick.. not exactly the real stuff, but works just fine!
sausage ( i used Italian b/c that is what we had, pork, sage, whichever you prefer)
cranberry sauce (yes I cheated again and used the canned stuff)
turkey gravy (you guessed it.. the can)
Okay so this is more like a compiling of ingredients.. but Matt LOVES this stuff. And I would be lying if I said that I didn't also:)
Prepare stuffing according to box. Add in cooked sausage. ( I only used 1/2 lb to one box stuffing) Heat turkey on stove top w/ gravy. Combine cranberry sauce and apple sauce.. one can and then I just eyeballed the applesauce) and heat on stove.
Layer- slice of bread, turkey/gravy, stuffing w/ sausage, and a little (or a lot!) cranberry-applesauce mixture right on top.
That's it.. a sort of thanksgiving dinner in less than 30 minutes! And this is a great way to use up some of those leftovers from this coming Thursday!
