Thanksgiving is a time for indulgence and gratitude, but once the big feast is over, what do you do with all those delicious leftovers? Instead of reheating the same meal, why not get creative and turn those leftovers into a mouthwatering leftover sub? Join us this month at Rizzo’s Roast Beef as we explore some inventive ways you can spice up your Thanksgiving leftover sub this year!
Your leftover sub starts with the bread. You can use a fresh baguette, a hoagie roll, or even opt for a healthier whole-grain bun if you prefer. Toast it lightly to add a satisfying crunch and prevent sogginess.
Instead of plain mayo or mustard, consider giving your sandwich a Thanksgiving twist. Make a cranberry mayo by mixing cranberry sauce with mayonnaise, or create a savory gravy aioli by blending leftover gravy with mayonnaise. These spreads will add a burst of flavor to your sub.
The Star of the Show
The leftover turkey is the centerpiece of your sub. Instead of using plain slices, shred or chop the turkey into bite-sized pieces. If you want to add a little heat, toss the turkey in some hot sauce or BBQ sauce for a spicy kick.
Add some freshness to your leftover sub by layering it with crispy lettuce, spinach, or arugula. For a touch of spiciness, consider adding sliced jalapeños or pickled red onions.
Melted cheese can bring your leftover sub to the next level. Choose a cheese that complements the other flavors, such as cheddar, pepper jack, or Swiss. Sprinkle it liberally over the turkey and place your sub in a hot oven or under the broiler until the cheese is bubbling and golden brown.
To give your leftover sub an extra Thanksgiving touch, add some leftover stuffing. Break it apart and mix it with a bit of butter before adding it to your sandwich for extra richness.
The Cranberry Sauce
Cranberry sauce isn’t just for turkey; it can be a fantastic addition to your leftover sub. Spread a generous layer on one side of the bread, and it will add a tangy contrast to the richness of the other ingredients.
A Thanksgiving leftover sub isn’t complete without some sweet potato fries on the side. These sweet and crispy fries make for a perfect pairing and will add a sweet and spicy dimension to your meal.
The Final Touch
Enhance the flavors of your leftover sub with a sprinkle of fresh herbs like parsley, cilantro, or even rosemary. Season with a dash of salt, pepper, or even a pinch of crushed red pepper flakes for an extra spicy kick.
