The best leftover turkey sammie? A croque monsieur!

 
We think the best part of the Thanksgiving feast is the leftovers. Don’t you agree? That’s why we’re thankin’ our lucky stars that Ricky Eisen, owner of Between the Bread, is dishing up this recipe for a leftover turkey croque monsieur sandwich. Make ‘em for the whole fam!

 

Ingredients:

 

2 tablespoons unsalted butter
3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
2 cups hot milk
1 teaspoon of salt
1 pinch of ground black pepper
12 ounces of any yellow cheese. Grated (5 cups)
16 slices of white sandwich bread, with the crusts removed
Dijon or spicy mustard
8 ounces of turkey (light or dark), sliced thin
Leftover bread stuffing
Cranberry sauce

 

Directions:

 

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Melt the butter over low heat in a small sauce pan and add the flour all at once, stirring with a wooden spoon for 2 minutes. Slowly pour the hot milk into the butter–flour mixture and cook, whisking constantly, until the sauce is thickened. Off the heat add the salt, pepper, 1/2 cup grated yellow cheese.


Toast the bread.

Lightly brush half the toasted breads with mustard, add a slice of turkey to each, and sprinkle with half the remaining cheese.

Add a spoonful of stuffing and cranberry sauce to top and spread in layers keeping the top flat. Top with another piece of toasted bread. Slather the tops with the cheese sauce, sprinkle with the remaining cheese, and bake the sandwiches until lightly browned. Serve hot.
