The Turkey Sandwich That Everyone Loves

Thanksgiving leftover turkey sandwich, on the Baking Steel Griddle

I'd be willing to bet that if you polled 100 people asking "What is your favorite part about Thanksgiving?" 98 of them would say, "the leftovers!" I really couldn't agree more. As much as I love feasting and hanging out with my family and friends, there's just something so good about waking up on Friday and looking forward to that left over turkey sandwich.

We invaded the fridge, grabbed as much as we could and fired up our Baking Steel Griddle. The Griddle provides enough space to make 6 sandwiches at a time.  The rest is history. Turkey, cheese, cranberry sauce, arugula, butter, pumpernickel, steel. Go!
