Think of this as an eggy grilled cheese sandwich stuffed with yummy Thanksgiving leftovers.

Ingredients

  • Sliced bread
  • Leftover stuffing
  • Leftover turkey
  • Swiss cheese, sliced
  • Leftover cranberry sauce
  • Eggs
  • Milk
  • Salt & pepper, to taste
  • Butter for the pan
  • For the spread:
  • Honey

Steps

  1. In a shallow dish, combine eggs, milk, salt, and pepper.
  2. In a small bowl, combine honey, mustard, and apple cider vinegar.
  3. Shape stuffing into a square-like piece to fit the size of bread.
  4. Assemble: spread honey mustard on two slices of bread. Top one slice with cheese, followed by turkey, stuffing, more cheese, more turkey. Close with the other slice.
  5. Heat butter in a pan on medium heat. Dip sandwich in the egg mixture, and be sure to soak both sides well.
