Tell me, can we mix all of our favorite Thanksgiving leftovers together to make a unified sandwich that we all can enjoy?
Yes we can! (Sorry, I got carried away)
Why am I posting a Thanksgiving leftover sandwich a day before Thanksgiving? Well, I cooked mine yesterday, so I have to do something with the leftovers. I plan on having an early feast tomorrow, and then a movie, maybe Australia (though, it got a bad review in the paper today). I will check my email tomorrow, so if you get stuck and need some help, let me know. I wish everyone a Happy Thanksgiving! I will try something new, just pictures for the recipe, I think you could figure it out? I will add a comment at the end of this post with the answers.

Alright, I roasted off the Turkey, and the result? Not the Thanksgiving game changer that I was hoping for, but I don’t think you will write me a nasty email if you try it. (how’s that for an endorsement?) I still think my mom’s upside-down Turkey was the best. I will try and perfect that the next time I decide to post a Roasted Turkey recipe. This version was fine, but not as juicy as I was hoping, and the salt didn’t penetrate the meat like I had hoped. It tasted like a roasted bird, what can I say? Not sure it was worth sitting in the fridge for a day before you were able to cook it, and the juices it gave off made the gravy salty. (members of my heart healthy plan stay away) So, here’s the rest of the process anyways, try it if your adventurous. By the way, if you need help with the big Turkey day, go ahead and email me, and I will be happy to help you. My new website will have a live chat feature, but I don’t think it will be ready in time.
Rinse off the Turkey, pat dry, and roast in a 325 degree oven until the thickest part of the thigh reads 165 degrees.
Here’s what it will look like when you pull it out of the oven (let rest for 15 minutes before carving)
And here’s what the meat looks like when sliced, now that doesn’t look too bad does it?
