Go-to leftover turkey recipes: Knife and fork turkey sandwich

This is another family favorite for our Thanksgiving leftover turkey and sides. It's not really a recipe. More a way of combining and reheating leftovers. It really tastes better when heated in the oven, but sometimes we just pile everything on a plate and zap it in the microwave. 

Knife and fork turkey sandwich
Recipe published in The New Basics Cookbook, by Julee Rosso and Sheila Lukins
The ingredients is for one sandwich. 

2 large slices (1/4 inch thick) cooked turkey
1/4 cup leftover turkey stuffing
1 heaping tablespoon cranberry sauve
1 slice cheddar cheese
1/3 cup leftover turkey gravy

Preheat the oven to 350ºF.

Assemble the "sandwich," using the turkey slices in place of bread. Place one slice of the turkey on a piece of aluminum foil. Spread the stuffing over the turkey. Spread the cranberry sauce over the stuffing, lay the slice of cheese over the cranberry sauce, and cover with the remaining turkey.

Wrap the foil loosely around the sandwich, place it on a baking sheet, and bake for 15 minutes.

While the sandwich is baking, heat the gravy in a small saucepan.

Unwrap the sandwich, transfer it to a plate, and pour the gravy over it. Serve immediately.
