One of the first posts I ever wrote used Thanksgiving leftovers, Eggs in Purgatory, which is a fun way to use leftover mashed potatoes. Between these two recipes can you tell I enjoy breakfast leftovers?
This sandwich uses two leftover items - turkey and cranberry sauce. It's a little sweet, a little savory, and a lot of satisfying. Plus it is so easy to make that even if you are still exhausted from Thanksgiving cooking this will have you ready to eat with little effort in no time!
You'll notice this recipe doesn't really have any measurements - that's because it is way too simple to have them! Having them would make it overly complicated. Put as much of each ingredient as you prefer on your sandwich. I promise it will be perfect.
Prep Time: 3-5 minutes
Cook Time: 5 minutes
Servings: 1 sandwich
You Will Need:
- 2 slices bread of choice (I used rye)
- 1 large egg
- cranberry sauce
- cheddar slices
- shredded turkey
- fresh thyme
- olive oil or butter, for frying the egg
- salt and pepper, to taste
- Toast the bread slices of your choice. Place on plate.
- Fry the egg in a bit of olive oil or butter over medium heat in a small saucepan to desired doneness. While frying, add salt and pepper to taste if desired.
- While egg is frying, layer cheddar cheese on one slice of bread and spread cranberry sauce on the other.
- Place fried egg on top of the cheddar cheese (this will make it slightly melty).
- Add turkey on top of the egg.
- Sprinkle thyme over the turkey.
- Flip cranberry sauce slice over to top the sandwich off. Cut in half and enjoy!
