I like leftover turkey on a sandwich of cheddar jalepeno bread with mayo and maybe tomato slices. I like yams sliced and warmed for breakfast with butter, toasted walnuts and a little warm maple syrup, waffle optional. I also like cranberry sauce on the slices. Waffles with a small dallop of vanilla ice cream and warmed cranberry sauce is delicious, maybe add a little cinnamin to the sauce. (I make this for Thanksgiving "breakfast" potlucks) When I make glazed carrots (brown sugar, butter and orange zest), these leftovers are good on a waffle too. You can also put these sweet leftovers on toast too. (butter and glazed carrots, cream cheese and cranberry)
