For some people, the best part of Thanksgiving is the sandwich you make the next day with anything that wasn’t gobbled up during the main feast. The team at Ken’s Creative Kitchen in Annapolis assembled the ultimate Thanksgiving Day leftover sandwich for us, using their favorite recipes, and you can recreate it, too.

The Ultimate Thanksgiving Leftovers Sandwich

On a slice of 12-grain bread, spread a thin layer of horseradish mayonnaise and top with red leaf lettuce. Pile on slices of leftover roasted turkey breast, and then spoon on a layer of cranberry-orange sauce. Cut off a slice of sage and sausage stuffing and place it on top of the sauce, and then top with thin slices of red onion. Top with second slice of 12-grain bread. Serve the sandwich with a side of potato salad, and enjoy!

1 pound sausage
3/4 cup chicken stock
1/4 cup sweet onion, diced
1/2 cup celery, minced

Sauté onion and celery until softened. Add bread cubes, salt, and pepper to taste, and then add the chicken stock until moistened. Gently fold in egg, sausage, and fresh sage. Pat into a greased loaf pan and bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes until set.
