The last test kitchen I did for Food Republic involved making new spins on the Thanksgiving leftovers sandwich, and we did not hold back. I made a few that I never imagined someone would want to publish, but here they are, in all their glory. Step up your game on Friday, and make one of these bad boys.
Like a cheesesteak, but made with turkey and a little bit of gravy, this poutine-like powerhouse of a sandwich is a cheesy beast.
Candied Yam/Sweet Potato Dessert Empanadas
Let me get straight to it here: these are amazing, and if you have any leftover yams/sweet potatoes, definitely make these. And if you don’t? Fuck it, go buy some more and make these anyway.
The Stuffing Burger
That’s right, I made a burger out of stuffing. Don’t worry there’s some turkey in there too, but the stuffing is the real star here. And if you’re looking for a good vegetarian burger, just leave the turkey out of the stuffing patty.
The Waffled Stuffing Croque Madame
I know, it’s a little tough to ingest all those words and imagine what they actually mean together. It’s basically leftover stuffing, turned into a waffle, and then topped with ham, cheese, and a fried egg. You will never look at a ham egg and cheese sandwich the same way ever again after one of these.
