Thanksgiving Leftover Bagel Sandwiches

If your family is like my family try as we might, we never seem to finish all the food at Thanksgiving. However, we have no problem polishing it off over the course of the weekend. In years past we’ve dived right into Thanksgiving sandwiches the day after, but this year I wanted to add an unexpected twist. I started thinking about how yummy pesto would be with leftover turkey and then took it a few steps further to land on a delicious result – leftover bagel sandwiches!

You can do this with leftover or freshly cooked cranberries, but if you decide to cook them the morning of, make sure not to leave them in the pan for too long or they will burst. Here’s hoping someone will serve this to me in bed! A girl can dream, right?
