How to Turn Thanksgiving Leftovers into Tailgating Success!

We all know that this is the biggest week in College Football, but it’s also a time to give thanks for all our blessing and spend time with our family.   So after you have slaved over the big meal on Thursday and taken your nap, you have to put up the leftovers.

Leftovers are great because they last for two or three days and you don’t have to cook such a big meal again for another few days.  That is what makes this recipe one of the best tailgating recipes for rivalry week!  It’s made with all Thanksgiving day leftovers!

Head to your deli and pick up a loaf of freshly baked multi-grain bread, a fresh head of lettuce and a tomato and get busy!

  • 2 slices of multi-grain bread
  • 1 Tbsp of mayo
  • 4 slices of leftover turkey
  • ½ cup of leftover dressing
  • 2 Tbsp of cranberry sauce
  • 2 pieces of lettuce
  • 2 slices of fresh tomato

Spread the bread with the mayo and then layer the rest!  It’s that easy!  You’re welcome!
