A recipe from Thanksgiving day leftovers. I try not to waste anything, so this is a different sandwich I came up with using cranberry sauce, applesauce, turkey, gravy & even leftover dinner rolls can be used to make sliders.

Oh what a good way to enjoy your holiday leftovers. I like whole berry cranberry sauce, so I used that when making this sandwich. But, the jelly would work too. Can't wait to make these again! Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen
