After a Thanksgiving feast, I can pretty much handle a replay of the dinner “as-is” once, maybe twice before I get antsy. This includes the traditional turkey-stuffing-gravy sandwich most of us eagerly anticipate every year (with good reason, it’s delicious!).
By Days 2 and 3, I’m usually still staring down a considerable quantity of leftover turkey, but am still too stuffed from the holiday’s food fest to handle much more than a sandwich. Enter Turkey Croissant Panini.
This has been my favorite post-Thanksgiving sandwich for at least the past 10 years. Turkey slices are layered onto buttery croissants, with sliced Brie from the holiday’s cheese board, cranberry sauce or relish, and a few leaves of baby arugula for a fresh, peppery contrast.
It’s a satisfying, luxurious, easy way to enjoy your leftovers. (We all need a little “easy” after all of that Thanksgiving prep, right?)
