Hot Turkey Deliciousness
Surprisingly, Wimpy and Sam didn't go completely nuts while I was roasting the turkey breast on Sunday. Perhaps it didn't stay in the oven long enough to permeate the house with the pet intoxicating aroma of roasting turkey. They were pretty psyched to get some roasted turkey treats, however. Sam performed his turkey begging dance well. Angie tried to get Wimpy to do the "balance the turkey on your nose until I say okay" trick, but Wimpy wasn't interested in any kind of a wait, so we have no good photo of that!
So, to the sandwiches. Now, I've heard some criticism that a hot, open-faced turkey sandwich isn't technically a sandwich, but I'm making the rules, so they count! I think that any small town diner would agree. We each followed separate techniques in constructing the sandwich.
I went with toast, potatoes, stuffing, turkey, gravy, and cranberries on the side.
Angie used a gravy interleaving method: toast, gravy, potatoes, gravy, stuffing, turkey, gravy. Cranberries on the side.
Beth was a purist: toast, turkey, gravy. Potatoes, stuffing,and cranberries on the side.
And we were all happy.
Thanks for all of the great sandwich suggestions! It has paid off and next week we are making Jucy Lucys!!!!
Peter, think you can find a cheap flight?
