I dont know about you, but I dont really need a lot of recipes for leftover turkey after Thanksgiving.
I mean, they all look good. Turkey tettrazini, curried turkey soup, turkey meatballs and spaghetti, and turkey pot pie Id have any for dinner, any time of the year. We like eating turkey all year round. Thats when I want to make those dishes any time but the last week of November.
However, after Thanksgiving, we rarely have enough turkey left to dine on leftovers for days. Maybe we plan too well, buying a just-big-enough turkey to feed our extended family for the big meal, hot turkey sandwiches one day, and cold turkey sandwiches the next.
Because, really, my favorite way to eat juicy roasted turkey is in cold turkey sandwiches.
I like thick slices of whole-grain bread, and I like homemade bread best. (The bread pictured here is our gluten-free sandwich bread. You can find the recipe on our Thanksgiving Gluten-Free Baking iPad app.)
I love a good helping of tangy cranberry chutney, especially one with orange zest, cinnamon and pear. (Heres the recipe for that, plus a video showing you how.)
And then goat cheese, soft chevre, spread on the bread or dotted on top of the chutney. (Were big fans of the goat cheese from Redwood Hill Farms.)
Thats all it takes for a completely satisfying meal.
Heck with the hot turkey casserole. Just give me another cold turkey sandwich with cranberry chutney and goat cheese, please.
Maybe well order a bigger turkey this Thanksgiving.
