Although Thanksgiving dinner is always amazing it is the leftovers that I like the most! In particular, may favourite way to enjoy some of those leftovers is a roasted turkey sandwich stuffed full with cranberry sauce. After enjoying a few of those sandwiches this year it was time to try something new, a Cuban style leftover turkey sandwich that I came across last year on Panini Happy. The Cuban sandwich generally consists of roast pork, ham, swiss cheese, pickles, mayo and mustard and this Thanksgiving leftovers version uses roast turkey rather than the pork and it adds a healthy dose of cranberry sauce to the mix. With all of the cranberry sauce, mayo and mustard in these sandwiches, they can be a bit messy but they are definitely worth it! The cranberry sauce works surprisingly well with all of the other flavours in this sandwich, so well in fact that you will hardly notice all of the cranberry sauce and mayo dripping down your chin after taking that last bite.
