The Stuffing Sandwich: A Breadless Vessel For Thanksgiving Leftovers

The traditional Thanksgiving leftover sandwich has a problem: It's already full of starch in the form of mashed potatoes and stuffing. When you put those foods on bread you're just adding starch to starch, and diluting the flavor of the holiday's main attractions.

The Stuffing Sandwich solves this problem! Watch the video to see exactly how it's done, but here's the jist...

Take two baseball sized balls of stuffing. Beat two eggs and mix them with the stuffing. Form the stuffing back into balls and put them in a hot skillet with oil. Press them flat and fry them until they're golden brown and crispy on both sides. Now use those stuffing patties in place of sandwich bread!

I recommend thin layers of mashed potatoes on both sides, to act as a mortar. Add turkey, cranberry sauce, and whatever else you like, and you're in business.
