Hot Brown Turkey Spinach Sandwiches

What do you do with all that leftover turkey? Hot Brown Turkey Spinach Sandwiches

What is better than turkey, bread and gravy? Hot Brown Turkey Spinach Sandwiches, that’s what! Oh my gosh, they were good. A nice slice of fresh bread, topped with some hot turkey, leftover creamed spinach and gravy that is pumped up with some cheese, ooey, gooey cheese! This is a sandwich among sandwiches.

I love to make up sandwiches with Thanksgiving leftovers. My favorite combination is stuffing, mashed potatoes and turkey with just a little mayo. Yes, pretty much a carb upon carb sandwich with some token turkey thrown in. Then creamed spinach entered the picture and well I said goodbye to my carb sandwich and hello Hot Brown Turkey Spinach Sandwiches. You rule!

If you didn’t make my Creamed Spinach, you can still make this sandwich.  Although I have to ask why not?  You are missing out.  Anyway, just saute a little spinach in a pan with a touch of olive oil, salt and pepper.  No worries!  You can make my Creamed Spinach another time.

Hot, delicious and oh so satisfying.
