My previous post about sandwiches made quite a stir. The metaphor was kind of lost in the lettuce of dispute over the status of an open-faced sandwich as something other than a sandwich. Well, the metaphor was only added as an excuse to write about sandwiches. So this time I’ll give you all sandwiches all the time.
As I previously stated, I love sandwiches. I may even have a sandwich problem. I also have an enabler. Around Thanksgiving A___ had the idea to take the quirkiness of stuffin’ muffins – stuffing made in a muffin pan – and making it in a loaf pan in order to cut it into slices and make a leftover turkey sandwich between two slices of stuffing. The idea had a mad scientists kind of appeal that I drooled over.
The stuffing bread makes interesting sandwich material, in a particle board kind of way. The stuffing was made slightly more moist than usual in order for it to hold together. A couple of days layer, the loaf was cut and toasted to add some stiffness and strength to the stuffing bread. Then we piled on turkey, candied sweet potatoes, (maybe some red onion), and some homemade cranberry sauce (not the gelatinous stuff from a can). I was worried that the bread may not hold out, but it worked like a champ and luscious leftovers were transformed into succulent sandwich goodness.
