I promised there would be talk of the sandwiches we made with our delicious Maple Brined Cherrywood Smoked Turkey. And I can't leave you in suspense any longer. After all, these little morsels were so stellar that you're going to want to try them out for yourself just as soon as you have some of your own Thanksgiving turkey leftovers on hand.
Before we get to the details of the sandwiches themselves, I'm going to take the opportunity to put in a plug for this cherry chutney recipe, which is quickly becoming one of our all-time favorite condiments.
Though it might not be quite as traditional as your usual cranberry sauce, I'm going to challenge you to consider making up a batch to put right out there on your Thanksgiving table. It's tart and delicious. And it goes perfectly with turkey. And stuffing. It's also delicious spread on one of those dinner rolls you're bound to have left over.
Which brings me to the sandwich at hand. These little beauties make use of leftover dinner rolls, one of the holiday staples that seem to get thrown out more than re-heated. So, I like to think that these sandwiches are born of thrift. They're also super fast to throw together, which makes them the perfect dinner for one of those busy weeknights that become inevitable as the holidays draw closer.
Since the goal here is to make you hungry, let me give you a quick glimpse into the sort of sandwich I'm talking about. Just imagine a crisp, warm panini-pressed sprouted grain dinner roll spread with a liberal amount of fresh goat cheese, dolloped with cherry chutney and topped with delicious smoked turkey and fresh arugula. Sweet-tart, tangy, smoky, peppery -- all of these flavors come together in glorious harmony as you bite into this crisp little slider.
Happy Thanksgiving everyone!
Eat well. Enjoy family and friends. We'll lift our glasses to you at our holiday table!
