Thanksgiving Grilled Cheese Sandwich

Thanksgiving Grilled Cheese Sandwich

Now that the Thanksgiving dinner is done with it's time to get to the fun part, enjoying the leftovers in tasty new dishes! I am a big fan of grilled cheese sandwiches and I was thinking that it would be nice to make a Thanksgiving leftover grilled cheese sandwich except instead of using slices of bread, why now use the stuffing/dressing? The basic idea was to press the leftover stuffing/dressing down into the pan in the basic shape of a slice of bread, top it with cheese, leftover roast turkey, cranberry sauce etc. and grill it up until the cheese has melted and the outsides are nice and golden brown and slightly crispy! I was thinking that the whole idea was based on the stuffing/dressing as bread so it was not going to hold up that well so why not sprinkle even more cheese on the outside so that it would melt and caramelize and hold the 'bread' together a bit more. Even with all of the cheese holding this grilled cheese sandwich together it's still going to be one monstrous sandwich that is eaten with a knife and a fork! I topped the Thanksgiving leftover grilled cheese sandwich off with some gravy and cranberry sauce and a side of garlic mashed potatoes making for one really tasty lunch for the day after Thanksgiving!
