Ultimate Leftover Thanksgiving Turkey Club Sandwich

Leftovers are the best part of Thanksgiving. So instead of sneaking or snacking on just a few things, we found a smart way to combine all your favorite dishes in one amazing sandwich. These fillings are just suggestions--green bean casserole, roasted veggies, or any of your favorite meat or pareve sides will work. Serve your sandwich cold or warmed slightly in the oven or pan. And don’t forget the gravy!
