Italian Turkey Covered Sandwich Recipe


For those of you that have to work a job that is open on any Holiday like Thanksgiving for instance, here was my alternative for Thanksgiving Day dinner with no time to cook! Guess what ? If you didn't have to work you have leftover turkey maybe? Ok  then you can do this with your leftover Turkey ( if you were fortunate to have a big turkey dinner with leftovers!)

 This was for two people, my husband and I,  as we both work retail with extra long hours had to go to work at 2:00 pm to open our stores by 4:00 pm.  This didn't stop us from having a thankful and wonderful brunch. Was a totally appreciated brunch and still gave us much needed holiday cheer.


 This little dinner compromise was just perfect and we didn't get tired from that huge turkey dinner 
(that usually required a nap later ) 
We made it through the
 14 hour + work day without a problem!

Italian Turkey Covered Sandwich Recipe

1 pound of thick sliced oven roasted deli turkey
2 jars of turkey gravy
3 tablespoon white wine (Chablis)
2 cups frozen corn
1 small can sweet potatoes drained
1 pound store bought garlic mashed potatoes
1 whole loaf of Italian bread thick sliced 

Other quick food suggestions: boxed stuffing,  canned cranberries

Garnishes that are optional for sweet potatoes: marshmallows, butter, cinnamon, brown sugar

Place the turkey sliced in a oven proof  2 quart dish. Pour both jars of the gravy over it adding the white wine ( I used Chablis).

Add some butter to the corn to another oven proof dish. Heat in the microwave or oven.

In a medium sized oven proof dish, add the sweet potatoes and mash with a fork. Add 1 tablespoon each brown sugar, butter and a pinch of cinnamon and stir together. Add some marshmallows to cover the top. Bake the sweet potatoes until warm and top of marshmallows are browned.

Heat the store bought potatoes in the microwave until hot or make your own.

Place one thick slice of bread on the plate. Top with turkey and  some gravy poured on top of the bread. Add another thick slice of bread on top,  add more gravy.  Place the potatoes on the plate next to the sandwich, making a well in the center, add gravy to the center well.  
Of course you can make some stuffing from a store bought package as well to add to the festive plate.
