Day-After-Thanksgiving-Sandwich + Homemade Coleslaw

Call the police.  Because this sandwich is so good it should be illegal.

I hope all of you are still in your turkey comas.  And I also hope you have plenty of leftovers to whip up this little masterpiece.  This is the one day a year that you will most likely have all of the ingredients on hand and each bite is like an entire thanksgiving meal in your mouth!

I'm in a bit of a rush because tonight calls for a reunion of distant friends and family.  This coleslaw recipe is courtesy of my husband's family and it is classic and delicious.

Let the long weekend continue...

 Shred the carrots

 Then the cabbage

 Mix up the dressing

 Pour over slaw

 And stir... now it's time to assemble the sandwich.

 Cranberries and mayo

Now you have cranberry mayo

 Spread that and gravy on one side of the bread and the mayo on the other

 Top with stuffing.  I form it into a thin layer...

 Top with the coleslaw

 Then turkey

 Finally, grill it up

Homemade Coleslaw
1 large carrot, shredded
1 head of cabbage, shredded
1 cup mayonnaise
1/4 cup whipping cream
1/4 cup sugar
2 teaspoons red wine vinegar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper

Shred carrot and cabbage.  To do this quickly, I use the grating attachment on my food processor.  If you don't have one, roll up your sleeves and use your good, old box grater.  Place slaw in a large bowl.

In a separate bowl, whisk the mayo, cream, sugar, vinegar, salt and pepper.  Pour over cabbage, stir and let sit for at least 10 minutes.

Crusty Bread
Cranberry Mayo

Assemble sandwich as shown above then grill it up in a saute pan.  Cut in half and enjoy every bite!
