Thanksgiving Leftover Recipes from Chef Bill

While I look forward to Thanksgiving dinner, I must admit, I look forward to the abundance of leftovers even more! Too often during the holidays I find myself sneaking into the fridge for a midnight snack. Our own Chef Bill gave me the perfect recipes for turning that Thanksgiving turkey into a second meal! So as you tip-toe into the kitchen (don't worry, we won't tell anyone) make sure to whip up his Holiday Gobbler Sandwich and Strawberry Habanero Jelly. We're sure you will gobble it up! Enjoy!

Holiday Gobbler Sandwich
(Yields 4)

4-4 ounce piece of turkey breast, sliced thin
8 slices whole wheat bread
8 tablespoons cranberry sauce
8 tablespoons Strawberry Habanero Jelly (recipe follows)
4 tomato slices
4 slices of red onion
4 lettuce leaves, washed


Make Habanero Jelly and then spread 2 tablespoons of the Strawberry Habanero Jelly on 4 slices of bread. Spread 2 tablespoons of cranberry on the remaining slices of bread. Place 1/4 pound sliced turkey evenly on top of 4 bread slices, top with tomato slice, a red onion slice, lettuce leaf, and the remaining slice of bread. Cut each sandwich diagonally and serve with your favorite beverage.

Strawberry Habanero
(Yields: 1 cup)


1 cup strawberry jam
1 teaspoon lemon zest
1 teaspoon orange zest
1 cup brown sugar
1 teaspoon kosher salt or to taste
1 habanero, minced or as desired


Place everything in a food processor and pulse to combine (about 15 seconds). Place the jam in a non-corrosive jar with plastic wrap and place in the refrigerator or serve as needed.
