Ingredients

  • 4  Ounces  sliced roasted turkey
  • 1  Tablespoon  butter
  • 1/4  Cup  chicken stock
  • 3/4  Cups  stuffing
  • 2  Tablespoons  gravy
  • slices sourdough bread
  • 2  Tablespoons  cranberry sauce
  • 1  Tablespoon  mayonnaise

Directions

Toast the sourdough bread. While the bread is toasting, prepare your other ingredients so that you are ready to assemble when it’s ready.

In a small sauté pan, melt the butter and chicken stock together over low heat. Add the turkey slices and cook for 3-4 minutes on low, turning the turkey frequently so that it does not take on any color from the cooking. You only want to reheat the turkey — not fry it — so make sure the heat is very low so that there is a braising process in effect.

Combine the stuffing and the gravy in a small bowl. Give it a good stir and microwave until heated through, about 1 minute. Stop the microwave after 30 seconds and stir it again before microwaving it for the rest of the time.

When the bread is done, spread the cranberry sauce on 1 slice, making sure to cover the bread corner to corner, then top with the stuffing. Use a spoon to spread out the stuffing so that it, like the cranberry sauce, covers every inch of the bread. On the other slice, spread the mayonnaise and top with the hot turkey. Combine the 2 slices together, turkey to stuffing, and serve.
