One of my favorite things about Thanksgiving is the leftovers. When I was growing up we had our leftover sandwiches on rye bread and I continue that tradition today. On the way to my parent's house yesterday I stopped at the Italian bakery (the same place we get our pizza dough) to pick up a loaf of sliced rye. This afternoon I made myself a Thanksgiving sandwich:
It starts with two slices of lightly toasted rye bread slathered with a good helping of mayo on both the top and bottom slices. The turkey goes down first so it can sit on top of the mayo, followed by the stuffing. The cranberry sauce comes last, as it should be touching the other mayo-slathered slice. The cranberry sauce mixes with the mayo to form the perfect condiment compliment to the turkey and stuffing and the rye provides a mild tang. There you have it, the perfect Thanksgiving leftovers sandwich.
