Whew! We made it through Thanksgiving! A show of hands, how many people are having a hard time buttoning their pants today? Come on, I can’t be the only one! Okay, now that the big turkey dinner is over, it’s time to concentrate on how to you’re going to put your leftovers to use…
…and boy do I have a sandwich for you!
Turkey Leftovers Sandwich with Caramelized Onions, Sautéed Cinnamon Apples, & Champagne Honey Mustard
- 8 slices of thick-cut bread
- 12 oz. sliced turkey
- 1 apple; peeled, cored, and sliced into ⅛-inch thick rings
- 1 white onion
- 3 Tbsp unsalted butter, divided
- ½ tsp cinnamon, divided
- pinch of salt
- 4 Tbsp champagne honey mustard
Set oven to broil and lightly toast bread on both sides until golden brown; set aside. Slice onions into ⅛-inch thick rings, then cut rings into quarters.
In a large, straight-sided skillet set over medium heat, melt 2 Tbsp butter with ¼ tsp of cinnamon and a pinch of salt, swirling to combine. Add onions and sauté until just starting to soften, about 5 minutes. Push the onions to the outer edge of the pan and add remaining butter and cinnamon to the center of the pan. Once melted, gently place apple rings in the pan and toss to coat. Reduce heat to low, cover pan, and cook, stirring occasionally, until apples are soft, about 10-15 minutes.
To assemble the sandwiches:
Slather 4 slices of toasted bread with 1 Tbsp of champagne honey mustard each. Evenly divide sliced turkey over the remaining 4 bread slices, top with sautéed onions and apples. Cover each sandwich with one slice of mustard toast.
