Open-Faced Leftover Thanksgiving Sandwich

This is one of my favorite ways to use up Thanksgiving leftovers!  It’s not really a recipe; just more putting things together. You will see lots of mushrooms in my photos. I make a mushroom gravy. You use your leftovers just as they are. This is meant to be easy and delicious!

To warm my shredded turkey I put it in a microwave safe bowl. I like to use a flat soup bowl. I add a little water to the bowl (maybe a tablespoon) and cover the bowl with wax paper. Then, I heat it “slow and low.” I microwave the turkey for 30 seconds to a minute at a time on power level 3, stirring after each interval. I continue doing this until the turkey is at the temp I want it. The water helps it not dry out.

I nuke the gravy for a minute on full power, stir and repeat until I get the desired temperature.

Open-Faced Leftover Thanksgiving Sandwich

Ingredients:
1-2 T Butter or Olive Oil
Stuffing
Chicken or Turkey Stock (if necessary)
Warm Turkey Meat, sliced or shredded
Warm Gravy
Fresh Parsley (for garnish)

Add butter or olive oil to a skillet and heat over medium.

While your pan is getting hot, grab a handful of stuffing and make a “patty” out of it, just like you would patty a burger.
(If your stuffing is dry you might want to add a little chicken stock so you can smush it easier)

Put your stuffing patty (or patties) in the skillet.

Leave it in the skillet until it gets nice and crusty, check it after about 3-5 minutes.
When it is grilled to your liking, flip it over and grill the other side.
