The Ultimate Thanksgiving Leftovers Sandwich

Thanksgiving is one of the very best days of the year.  Not only do we get to enjoy a feast on actual Thanksgiving Day, we usually get to bring home the BEST leftovers!

There’s nothing like getting together with family and friends on this special day with some of the best food of the year.  We look forward to it for months!

We have made it a tradition to enjoy what we call The Ultimate Thanksgiving Leftovers Sandwich after Thanksgiving.

It’s a pleasure partnering with French’s #HolidaywithFrenchs to bring you our favorite holiday sandwich!  Once we’ve layered our favorite Thanksgiving leftovers onto a soft roll, we top it with French’s® Crispy Onions.  It gives the perfect crunch and flavor to our gorgeous sandwich!  Did you know there are other Crispy Onions flavor options such as Caramelized Fried Onions, White Cheddar Crispy Onions and Crispy Jalapeño’s?  So many great options to add to your favorite recipes!

All of my favorite Thanksgiving leftovers in one sandwich.  I have died and gone to heaven.  You can get creative with your leftovers, add a little green bean casserole, sweet potatoes, some corn even!  Have fun, it’s all delicious!  Hope you enjoy one of our favorite traditions!

    We went back east for Thanksgiving and now I’m missing the leftovers. I’ve got a turkey in the freezer I’ll be breaking out next week and you can bet I’ll be making this ultimate leftover sandwich from it!
