Every November, the internet is flooded with “Thanksgiving” recipes aimed at renewed enjoyment from the year’s most expensive feast! Last year, I published a recipe for Williamsburg Inn Turkey Soup, my favorite winter soup, aimed at finishing up that jar of sage purchased in thanksgiving for my ability to afford a $5 spice I will only use once (#truestory!). This year’s contribution is somewhat simpler, a literal look at leftovers, but it is one of my favorite sandwiches of all time!
Let’s talk about the Earl of Sandwich’s philosophy on sandwiches, as I’m sure he had one! If he were still alive, I imagine he would be a short, stout Henry VIII ish wannabe who would constantly crone, “We don’t eat sandwiches like that!” No wait. That’s Faulty Towers. Wrong history!
Born from a hungry belly, as most recipes are, sandwiches are the ultimate homage to laziness *ahum* did I say laziness? I meant simplicity…hence the sandwich! It takes practice to eat like a king! 🙂 What could be simpler than thin layers of turkey topped with hints of sage from Cornbread Stuffing nestled in between a mini pretzel roll spread with cranberry sauce and gravy? Pretzel rolls. How have we forgotten this most auspicious ingredient on our list of foodness gracious?!
With the first glimpse of Christmas on the horizon, time is of the essence and relaxation is a precious commodity. Thus, it is in the spirit of a Happy Thanksgiving and the merry days of Christmas holidays to come that I give you The Gobbler!
- 1 mini pretzel roll
- 1 small piece of leftover roast turkey meat
- 1 tablespoon leftover Cornbread Stuffing
- 2 teaspoons leftover cranberry sauce
- 2 teaspoons leftover Turkey Gravy
- Microwave the pretzel roll for 10-15 seconds or until lukewarm. Lightly coat the inside of the top bun with cranberry sauce and the bottom bun with turkey gravy. In between layer on thin shavings of leftover Turkey meat and Cornbread Stuffing. Smoosh it together and enjoy!
