This is our version of turkey sandwiches that we like to make when we still have turkey (and other) leftovers to use up after our annual Thanksgiving feast. There is no right or wrong way to make it, just put it all between two slices of bread, and enjoy.
Notes from the Test Kitchen:
I think that my three favorite things about Thanksgiving are family time, the meal and LEFTOVERS! This is the perfect sandwich to refuel after shopping. I really liked the cream cheese addition. It really compliments the turkey and cranberry.
cream cheese, softened
cranberry sauce (I use my homemade cranberry relish)
low-fat mayonnaise (optional--I usually omit it, but most of my family prefers it)
cooked turkey (great use of your leftover thanksgiving turkey)
Lightly toast both slices of bread. Spread cream cheese on both halves while bread is still hot, so the cream cheese melts justly slightly. Add mayonnaise, if you wish.
Spread cranberry sauce on both slices of toasted bread with cranberry sauce (or cranberry relish).
Top one toasted slice with cooked turkey meat and season with salt and pepper. Then top with Romaine lettuce leaf. Place the other slice of bread over the Romaine lettuce. Cut the sandwich in half diagonally.
Serve with re-heated leftover Thanksgiving stuffing or re-heated mashed potatoes and gravy.
