Planning to Tackle the Leftovers and a Wusthof Giveaway
When it comes to Thanksgiving leftovers, the options are pretty much endless. There are the repurposed casseroles, the hearty turkey and vegetable soups, potpies, and even impressive renditions involving Julia Child-like skill. After years of happily avoiding the black Friday madness by indulging in post-Thanksgiving leftover repurposing, I’m here to crown the sandwich king.
It’s simple. Everyone gets the exact combination they want, a little DIY is a blessing after cooking for a crowd for days, and best of all, sandwiches requires no actual cooking.
Here’s how to prepare:
Step 1: Make a loaf of bread in your bread maker Thanksgiving morning.
Step 2: Use that loaf of bread on Black Friday
Here’s the ultimate hack: Skip the baking. Head down to your favorite bakery, navigate through the Black Friday shoppers – if you’re one of them, you can get your coffee at this point too – head home with a delicious, fresh loaf of crusty bread, and finally put those leftovers to work by making an amazing turkey sandwich.
This is the method I will be using:
One slice of crusty bread slathered with tart, cranberry sauce, piled with turkey, something green (probably green beans) or spinach, dressing, and topped with a secondary piece of fresh, crusty bread. It’s a little excessive but pure bliss. You absolutely must try it. For the truly adventurous treat, pop it in the Panini press.
