Bringing Delicious Ingenuity To Leftovers

CC Note: Don't know about you, but I'm still stuffed from all the wonderful Thanksgiving treats on my table. Here's a variation of my own Ultimate Leftover Turkey Sandwich. In mine, I use my homemade cranberry sauce along with a healthy dose of cranberry stuffing with my turkey. An added treat is a thick slice of Havardi cheese. I find it's the perfect snack as I overdose on the college football this weekend. Of course, I will serve this sandwich in wheel form for the annual Georgia- Georgia Tech game.

(NAPSI)-When it comes to preparing festive meals, it almost seems customary for the host to prepare much more food than can be eaten at one meal so friends and family can savor the flavors for several days to come. Cold turkey and its fixings can be as delicious as when they are first served if you bring a spark of ingenuity to your leftover recipe ideas.

Why settle for an ordinary turkey sandwich when you can have a deluxe offering that combines tastes from all corners of the table? The Ultimate Leftover Turkey Sandwich starts with slices of turkey breast that are complemented with a scoop of bread stuffing and tangy cranberry sauce. This leftover classic is dressed up with hearty multigrain bread that's been spread with Kraft Mayo with Olive Oil, which has all the taste of regular mayo but only half the fat and calories.

Roasted sweet potatoes combine in beautiful color and texture with celery, walnuts and red onions in a Roasted Sweet Potato Salad. This seasonal twist on a classic potato salad is also brightened up with the great taste of Kraft Mayo with Olive Oil that delightfully blends all of the recipe's flavors, while delivering only half the fat and calories of traditional mayonnaise.
