Moist turkey meat is smothered in hot mashed potatoes and gravy in this delicious solution to leftovers.

Once the Thanksgiving meal is over and we end up with a lot of tasty leftover food, we try to find different ways to eat the food up. One of our favorite things to do with all of the delicious leftovers is to make an open-faced turkey sandwich. We love them when we eat at casual restaurants, so why not make them at home?

We heat the turkey and sides that we will be needing, then pile strips or slices of turkey on slices of white or whole wheat bread, scoop hot mashed potatoes on top and smother the entire mass with creamy turkey gravy. How can it get better than that? Add leftover stuffing and cranberry sauce to the plate. Get a forkful of the sandwich and add a dab of cranberry sauce to it and you have leftover perfection!
