Three Tips for a Tasty Thanksgiving Sandwich

Posted by

Recognize the image above? It's the cover model for our November issue! We love Thanksgiving leftovers so much, we put them front-and-center this year. It's tough to create a non-delicious sandwich with Turkey day leftovers, but there are a few tricks that will make it utterly irresistible. Read on to see how to build a sandwich so delicious you'll crave it the other 364 days of the year.

1. Start smart. The bread should serve as a sturdy foundation, so use a thick slice (we like Pullman or sourdough). Toasting helps ward off sogginess.

2. Pile on the potato. Sweet potato that is! Just like the perfect forkful of Thanksgiving dinner, the key to a delicious leftover sandwich is striking the right sweet-savory balance. Here we used a few roasted wedges, but a smear of sweet potato casserole is a smart addition, too.

3. Go condiment crazy. Gild the lily with zingy cranberry sauce and a bit of mayo. Although mayonnaise may not have been a part of the original feast, we've still never meet a sandwich that isn't improved by a bit of the creamy condiment.
