My Family Enjoys Eating Thanksgiving Leftovers For Any Meal

I truly believe there are never enough recipes to use up leftovers in. My Papa was the king of not eating leftovers. My granny became very efficient in making exactly enough to feed two people because my grandfather was not going to eat it again. Yes, he was very spoiled and we all miss him and his quirks dearly.

However, in my house Papa would not have been happy around the holidays. Jorge and I can eat leftovers for days. I have been known to wake up and eat cold Thanksgiving leftovers for breakfast the next day. Thanksgiving is my superbowl of eating and I already have my stretchy jeans on stand by.

What Is The Best Way To Eat These Thanksgiving Sandwiches? 

As I mentioned earlier, these sandwiches are messy. They are filled with gravy and then smothered in it before being baked.

So you have two options: #1: You can be classy and eat them with a fork and knife on a plate. #2: You can be like Jorge and I and eat them with a pack of baby wipes between you to wipe the gravy off your hands and face when you’re done. The choice is yours. 😉
