I always get somewhat annoyed at all of the recipes that are all over the media touting uses for Thanksgiving leftover BEFORE the holiday has even started! Sometimes, however, you just end up with so much leftovers that you really do need to figure out how to re-use them without getting bored. This sandwich is one of my favorites and is a great way to use up any sliced turkey that you have left.
The Great Post Thanksgiving Turkey Sandwich
Buy a delicious loaf of Ciabatta bread. Cut bread into ½ inch slices and grill it with a little olive oil on a grill pan. Slather bread with Pareve Pesto*. Layer several slices of white meat turkey (all fat and skin removed)on each side of grilled Ciabatta. Add grilled Portobello mushrooms, roasted red peppers*, chopped romaine lettuce and sliced Beefsteak tomatoes. Serve as an open sandwich with cranberry sauce* or coleslaw* on the side.
You don’t have to wait until after Thanksgiving to create this sandwich. You can roast (or buy) a rolled turkey breast and have it any time you want.
