Thanksgiving Leftover Triple Decker
November 15, 2012
Thanksgiving may come and go but the leftovers will remain. Why not take your post-turkey day meals to new heights this year with Grilling.com’s Thanksgiving Leftover Triple Decker? It’s a mouthful of seasonally delicious goodness!
3 slices garlic butter Texas Toast (available in the freezer section of most groceries)
3-5 slices leftover turkey
¼ cup cranberry relish (recipe follows)
½ cup leftover stuffing
Prepare grill for medium heat cooking. Grill two slices Texas Toast until lightly browned on both sides, approximately 5 minutes per side, while grilling the 3rd slice on only one side (this side will toast as the sandwich heats). Place stuffing on top of one slice of 3rd slice of Texas toast with unbrowned side on the bottomt, top with another slice turkey, cranberry relish and final slice of toast. Place on the grill, untoasted side down, cover and allow to heat through before serving.
8 oz fresh cranberries
¼ cup maple sugar
juice of one lemon
juice of one orange
½ tsp lemon zest
1 tsp guajillo chili powder
¼ tsp allspice
2 tbs fig preserves
Combine all ingredients minus cranberries, simmer approximately 10 minutes until thickened. Add cranberries over medium high heat and cook for 5 minutes stirring frequently. Remove from heat, cool and serve.

A fun twist on what to do with left overs. Used to make something like this when working in Corporate Dinning.
