LEFTOVER TURKEY RECIPE IDEAS!!

ALL IN A WORD

by Aileen Fisher

T-for time to be together,
turkey, talk, and tangy weather.
H-for harvest stored away,
home, and hearth, and holiday.
A-for autumn's frosty art,
and abundance in the heart.
N-for neighbors, and November,
nice things, new things to remember.
K-for kitchen, kettles' croon,
kith and kin expected soon.
S-for sizzles, sights, and sounds,
and something special that abounds.
that spells THANKS--for joy in living
and a jolly good Thanksgiving.

HAPPY THANKSGIVING!!

TURKEY FRENCH DIPS

Leftover turkey is perfect for this sandwich…Sliced turkey from the deli works well also!

½ cup grated mozzarella cheese

DIRECTIONS:

Cut rolls lengthwise.
Place 2 ounces of turkey and ¼ of the mozzarella cheese on each roll.
Wrap each roll in aluminum foil and heat in the oven for 10 minutes.
Prepare au jus according to package directions.
Slice each sandwich in half, diagonally.
Serve each with 1/3 cup of au jus.
