  1. I love leftovers more than I love the actual dinner on the day of. This sandwich is one reason why…turkey, cranberry sauce, cream cheese, sprouts and sunflower seeds.

    We always do Turkey Terazzini too…over the years have developed one we love…maybe it’s the bacon?

    • Great suggestions, Barbara. Thanks for sharing!

  2. Hello – thanks so much for the link! I think I like TG day leftovers more than the actual meal. We made a double batch of that wild rice soup yesterday…I even make leftovers from my leftovers. ;) Hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving!

    • Hi Brenda, your soup is on my menu for this weekend. Can’t wait! Perfect comfort food for this chilly weather!

  3. Great round-up and thanks for the mention!

    • Love your lightened version of the recipe, Kalyn!
