Not only is my husband not going to be home for Thanksgiving, but he's also not able to eat anything yet, so it's not like I could bring him a meal - not even mashed potatoes and gravy. And there's no way I want to spend a lot of time prepping and cooking a huge meal that would keep me away from the hospital.
But that didn't stop me from buying a turkey. At this time of year, they're just about the cheapest meat you can buy. How could I pass that up? So I bought a turkey and disassembled it so I could make smaller meals from all the parts. A few days ago I roasted a breast half.
The day after Thanksgiving is one of my favorite days of the year. The house is clean and all the usual chores are done, I'm looking forward to a few days off of work with no big obligations to do anything, and I have fantastic leftovers.
That's what I was most looking forward to with that turkey breast - turkey sandwiches.
Of course, there's the traditional turkey, mayo and tomato sandwich, but I decided to change things up a bit. And of course the bread was home made. Of course ...
The extras on this beauty were raspberry jam and Roth Horseradish & Chive Havarti cheese. Of course, if you've got cranberry sauce, you could use that instead of the raspberry jam. And then I pressed and warmed the sandwich in a sandwich press. Perfect!
