I have yet another tasty way that you can use up leftover Thanksgiving turkey once the big day is over. Make this creamy open faced turkey sandwich. The colors of red and green are in it too. This makes t perfect to serve post Thanksgiving day.
Create a simple open face sandwich topped with a creamy sauce coating chunks of tender turkey served over crisp slices of toast. You make a basic cream sauce with butter, onion, celery, flour, chicken stock, evaporated milk, cream cheese, salt and pepper. Then you mix in the chunks of turkey or chicken along with some frozen peas. Warm though to heat the tureky and peas.
Serve the creamy sauce over the toast slices. Then finish it off with a sprinkling of fresh diced tomato. It adds a nice freshness. This is a great way to enjoy that leftover turkey but it is different from the regular Thanksgiving flavors.
