Alright so Thanksgiving is over, your family has come and gone and you are left with mounds of turkey, tupperware containers full of mom’s homemade cranberry sauce along with a mess of a kitchen and you are utterly exhausted.  The last thing anyone wants to do is cook again, so use up all those leftovers and make the ultimate leftover Thanksgiving turkey sandwich!

It doesn’t get much easier than throwing a sandwich together and this one is definitely a winner you guys.  To elevate this sandwich and make it even tastier I added creamy warm brie that I warmed up in the microwave for a few seconds, sliced prosciutto and topped it all with handfuls of peppery arugula.  Seriously you guys, SO much flavor in every bite!

How to Make a Leftover Turkey Sandwich

When it comes to making a quality sandwich, it’s allllll about the layers.  Start off with two slices of whole wheat or sprouted bread – I prefer toasting mine a bit, but you do YOU.  Spread a good amount of gooey cranberry sauce over each slice and top with leftover turkey and prosciutto.  Next comes the brie which, as I said before, I softened a bit in the microwave not only to make it easier to spread, but it made this sandwich even more delicious!  I mean who doesn’t like brie and prosciutto together??  Then just top with a handful of arugula and that’s it!  The easiest, most decadent turkey sandwich you’ll ever have.

Might I also suggest throwing this on a grill pan or a panini press and making this into a grilled cheese sandwich too?  Yes, you’re welcome.  I mean Thanksgiving only comes once a year so this is totally worth it, right??
