What's Your Thanksgiving Leftover Strategy?

This post is a bit late, but Bryan and I just got home from our Thanksgiving trip to his hometown in the Bay area. We hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving!

Now, if we can dig deep and go back a few days, here's the debate...what's your day-after-Thanksgiving-leftover-sandwich strategy?

We all know the drill: you're standing in front of the fridge, faced with a mountain of leftover Tupperware containers. Turkey, ham, stuffing, yams, potatoes, green beans, gravy...

What do you do? Where do you start? What's your go-to leftover sandwich strategy?

Bryan's brother makes mini sandwiches piled high with mayo, turkey and pickle slices.

Bryan makes a similar version but adds spicy mustard. He heats up mashed potatoes, stuffing and gravy on the side.

I, on the other hand, take the idea of a "leftover sandwich" to heart. I cut a roll in half, use cranberry sauce as my "mayo," then spread on layers of mashed potatoes, stuffing, turkey and ham. Hold the gravy. It's a literal translation of Thanksgiving leftovers on a sandwich, and it's fan-tas-tic.

You can make it hot or cold. You don't need a fork. But you do need a napkin because it's delightfully messy. Yum, yum, yum.

So, if you can, go back five days, when your pants were a little too tight and you were rummaging through the fridge for leftovers. Think about your leftover sandwich strategy. You know you've got one...
