I love a beautifully roasted turkey for our Thanksgiving meal, but I equally love the dishes we create in the days following. While my very favorite is a simple sandwich with turkey, cranberry sauce, mayo (homemade), and cream cheese tucked into a homemade roll (oh my!), we’ll often get creative with our dishes, making a whole new turkey experience.
