Thanksgiving leftovers are so versatile. They can be used for making broth (follow this recipe using turkey bones), soup (just sub chicken with turkey) and of course sandwiches. This is a simple little recipe I make using my leftover turkey and cranberry sauce.

The Homemade Cranberry Sauce:
There is simply no comparison between store bought gelatinous cranberry sauce in a can and homemade cranberry sauce. And before you say “I ain’t got no time for that!”, let me tell you that it takes five minutes to make! It’s the perfect accompaniment to turkey and stuffing on your Thanksgiving table but also makes one heck of a spread for a turkey sandwich!
Simply use grill or toast your favorite bread, spread with mayo, and then fill it with leftover turkey, chopped romaine, red onion, mayo and your favorite cheese (I like a good gruyere, raw sharp cheddar or provolone) and then spread with my homemade cranberry sauce. A fabulous lunch in two minutes and none of your holiday foods will go to waste!
