We went to a friend’s home for Thanksgiving dinner this year. It was wonderful but the downside of that is that you miss out on the best part of Thanksgiving: the leftovers. So, in the spirit of the holiday, I cooked a turkey yesterday and the kids came over for dinner. And that means that tonight we get to have the traditional day-after-Thanksgiving supper: Hot Turkey Sandwiches.
I like mine with all white meat, open faced and on white bread, with a lot of gravy. I like to have the leftover mashed potato, stuffing and gravy on the side. I like it so much I might even have two. After all, it’s only once a year.
Tonight’s supper will be served during half-time of the Pats game. Let’s hope the game score don’t give us indigestion!
Yum! You are so funny. Most people cook turkey because they SHOULD. Not because they want to.
I’m wondering what the leaves are sticking out of the turkey. It makes for a nice picture!
Beautiful sage leaves! Are those earth staples pinning the legs down? Great idea instead of trussing with kitchen twine.
Thanksgiving leftovers are the best! My family was tired of them so I made ziti last night, but that just means there is more turkey left for sandwiches for me!
I am so grateful a friend made Thanksgiving dinner and she has all the leftovers. I may make chicken soup today.

Score of the Pats game………I share your concern, as a Packer fan. I expect to have indigestion, however.

Hot turkey sandwiches are the BEST! We expect to have the exact same supper tonight (unless someone gets into the leftovers beforehand) and then everything will be all eaten up at last.
My T’day leftover meal is leftover mashed potatoes with some diced turkey meat and lots of gravy. I have had that for breakfast twice since Thursday. Mmmm.
Thanksgiving dinner is the ultimate comfort food–when it’s served and when ut’s leftover. Go Pats! Go Broncos!
It’s Sunday!!! Enjoy those sandwiches 🙂 we’ve had them cold but the last will be hot turkey sandwiches tomorrow!!
I love hot turkey sandwiches. Well, hot roast beef ones too. I think it’s the bread and the gravy that gets me!
Hope you had a good weekend!
Sorry about that green-and-gold-induced game-day tummy ache!!
turkey sandwiches are the best, especially with leftovers! (sorry about the game!)
