His & Hers Sandwiches: Up Your Thanksgiving Leftovers Game

Of course, we are thankful for how #blessed we are every single day, and especially around this time of the year. But, let’s be real, Thanksgiving is all about the food. We make room in our stomachs and on our plates all year as the holiday approaches to fill up with favorites like fried turkey, sweet potatoes, cranberries, and cornbread stuffing. What’s just as exciting as the feast on Thanksgiving day, is the leftovers the following day.

This year, we were inspired to take our Thanksgiving leftovers game up at notch by our friends at Dietz & Watson. We created our very own his & hers Thanksgiving leftover sandwiches;

His – All Of The Fixin’s

  • 1/2 loaf french bread, cut in half
  • Leftover Thanksgiving turkey
  • Leftover cranberries
  • Two spoonfuls of leftover stuffing, spread on one side of the bread
  • Dietz & Watson Picante Provolone cheese
  • Dietz & Watson Uncured Maple & Honey Ham
  • 3 slices cooked bacon (optional)
  • 1 tablespoon mayonnaise
  • Two tablespoons gravy

This one is to be served warm! So after arranging all of the ingredients on your sandwich (except the gravy), place it in the oven until the cheese melts. Then, open it up to spoon the warm gravy on top. Thanksgiving meets the club sandwich!

same great taste but with half of the guilt! 😜😜😜

Of course, the his and hers can be reversed – we tried both! They were soooo tasty, and we had so much fun making them together. The other wonderful thing about Thanksgiving is of course getting to spend time with loved ones, even if it’s doing something as simple as making a sandwich together. Making time for the most important people in your life, doesn’t have to be complicated.

We can’t wait to make these sandwiches with our Thanksgiving leftovers! Don’t forget to stock up on Dietz & Watson premium meats and cheeses pre-Thanksgiving so you can #ChooseTheTable with us. #ChooseTheTable is an effort to reclaim a few extra moments of quality time with the people you call family. It’s a belief that mealtime is more meaningful when shared with the people you love.

Like Dietz & Watson, we believe in the power food has to bring people together, and hope you’ll all join us in our effort to #ChooseTheTable. Share your #ChooseTheTableNOLA moments with us on social media.

Happy Thanksgiving, y’all! Enjoy the food, enjoy the leftovers, but more importantly enjoy the time spent with the people you’re surrounded by when you’re indulging in every single bite.
