Recipe: Leftover Turkey Croque Monsieur Sandwich

Thanksgiving is just around the corner with my U.S. friends. We already had ours. Anyways, don't you just hate that you don't know what to do with turkey leftovers or just trying to find recipes to use? Here's a delicious recipe you can try.

Using your favorite leftovers from your turkey day meal, there are many ways to create new dishes for your family to enjoy. Ricky Eisen, President and Owner of Between the Bread has crafted an original recipe for a Leftover Turkey Croque Monsieur Sandwich.

· 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
· 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
· 2 cups hot milk
· 1 teaspoon of salt
· 1 pinch of ground black pepper
· 12 ounces of any yellow cheese. Grated (5 cups)
· 16 slices of white sandwich bread, with the crusts removed
· Dijon or spicy mustard
· 8 ounces of turkey (light or dark), sliced thin
· Leftover bread stuffing
· Cranberry sauce


· Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Melt the butter over low heat in a small sauce pan and add the flour all at once, stirring with a wooden spoon for 2 minutes. Slowly pour the hot milk into the butter–flour mixture and cook, whisking constantly, until the sauce is thickened. Off the heat add the salt, pepper, 1/2 cup grated yellow cheese.

· Toast the bread

· Lightly brush half the toasted breads with mustard, add a slice of turkey to each, and sprinkle with half the remaining cheese.

· Add a spoonful of stuffing & cranberry sauce to top and spread in layers keeping the top flat. Top with another piece of toasted bread. Slather the tops with the cheese sauce, sprinkle with the remaining cheese, and bake the sandwiches until lightly browned. Serve hot.
