We used “Arnold whole grain” bread for our sandwich because the slices are a little larger than other sliced breads. The 100% whole wheat is the one shown here.

This is the “funest” time of the year! We all love holiday food, especially the old fashioned dishes our Moms and Grandmothers made. Some of which we love to carry on their traditions! You’ll find a lot of them in our Index. Most are so traditional that we would not think of having our holiday dinner without some or most of them! This month I’m going to add one of my family’s favorites,
Miss Dee’s Cornbread Dressing.
Then to have a little fun I’m going to share my
“Left-over Thanksgiving Sandwich”.
You may laugh, but once you make it, it will become a “family tradition”. So let’s get started~~~
Miss Dee’s Cornbread Dressing
In my Granny’s Taste of Christmas cookbook
1, 16-oz. pkg. Pepperidge Farm
Cornbread Dressing Mix
½ cup chopped onions
½ cup chopped bell peppers
¼ cup chopped celery
2 Tbsp. butter
1 large raw egg
2 hard-boiled eggs, chopped
Drippings from turkey pan
2, (10 ½) cans chicken broth
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Saute onions, bell
peppers and celery in the butter until softened. Then mix everything together, using the drippings and as much chicken broth as needed
to make very moist but not soupy. Pour into greased 9x13-inch or other 3 qt. baking dish and bake for 1 hour. Makes 8-10 servings
Note:The drippings from the cooked turkey pan really add a lot of flavor. But if you don’t have those you might want to add a little salt or poultry seasoning and taste.
Also I like the “bumpy” look of the dressing but you might prefer to “smooth” the top before baking.
Left-over Thanksgiving Sandwich
First, the story of this sandwich!
When we worked for a mortgage company, we traveled all over the country. Portland, Oregon was one of our favorite places and in the big office hi-rise building was a food court. Our favorite lunch was a popular “Left-over Thanksgiving Sandwich”! The food vender would slice the freshly baked turkey breast as you watched him make your sandwich!
2 slices of bread
A little mayonnaise
Lots & lots of thinly sliced fresh turkey breast meat
Some cornbread dressing
And then a “surprise that “made” the sandwich, a slice of whole cranberry sauce.
