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