The best leftover turkey sammie? A croque monsieur!
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
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.
