Thanksgiving on a toast

What’s better than having thanksgiving feast? The leftovers! And what better way to use them than make a toast or sandwich! I made an open-face sandwich. Yum!

After the feast I distribute most of the leftovers in takeout containers and hand them to the guests to take home. That’s not without keeping some for myself. The flavors in the stuffing and gravy deepen by the next morning and the already delicious feast develops a heavenly richness. The taste of tender turkey matures with every passing minute.

For folks who couldn’t make it to their family feasts and feel left out from all the celebrations due to work/studies, this toast is like thanksgiving in your mouth. Its super easy to assemble if you pick stuff from your grocery store or deli. You can absolutely get the holiday feels with this one. And how fast!toast2

I used sourdough bread slices for the toast I made because I had some on hand. But you absolutely don’t have to feel compelled to mimic that. Use any bread of your choice (or of your dreams!). You may also add Swiss cheese slices to tilt the scales tiny bit and enhance saltiness. Drizzle some rich luscious gravy on top (and drool while you imagine biting into that toast). Don’t be shy if you wish to add some dressing/stuffing to the sandwich. It’ll be perfectly scrumptious!

Its more of an assembly than a recipe but go ahead and check it out. I really want to know what you guys do with your thanksgiving leftovers. Leave comments and thoughts here. Tag me on Facebook/Instagram to keep me inspired with your gorgeous pictures.

P.S. – Its Black Friday! What do you have on your shopping list?
