Chef's Corner: Thanksgiving Fixings Turkey Sandwich


A sandwich, of course, is often a combination of flight of fancy and ingredients on hand. Thanksgiving leftovers provide a lot of possibilities. This is one we make every year. Get extra yams just for the chips!


Thanksgiving Fixings Turkey Sandwich with Home Made Yam Chips


The Sandwich


Amounts don't really matter... build from what you've got

  • Bread. We like sourdough, but often look for a sliced French loaf

  • Dijon mustard

  • Avocado, sliced with a touch of salt

  • Cranberry sauce

  • Ham slices (we like a good quality Black Forest)

  • Goat cheese (brie, or even Swiss, among others, would be wonderful as well)

  • Cooked turkey

We like to toast the bread. Assemble and serve with yam chips.

You could do this in an oven, but the microwave is quick and easy.

  • Yams or sweet potatoes
