What do you do with your Thanksgiving leftovers? Usually, I just continue to eat them for lunch and dinner the rest of the week following Thanksgiving, but I wanted to find a more fun and unique way of doing that!
This recipe takes all the traditional ingredients from your Thanksgiving dinner and makes it into a post turkey day party in your tummy! My favorite part of this has got to be the Hawaiian bread soaked in gravy in the middle of the sandwich. Can you say YUMMY?! Kids, you may not know this, but your parents will remember a scene from “Friends “ where Monica makes Ross a sandwich with Thanksgiving leftovers and she puts “the moist maker” in the middle. That is where I got that idea from. I thought it would be fun to incorporate something that sounds so good and fitting to this recipe!
FUN FACT: Why do we eat stuffing on Thanksgiving? It all began when early Americans didn’t have modern stoves just yet to cook the turkey AND side dishes. So they stuffed the turkey with bread that would end up getting stale if they didn’t eat it. This allowed them to both make a side dish at the same time as the turkey, as well as bringing stale bread back to life with all the turkey juices soaking into the bread, hence making stuffing!
