No More Leftovers…Please!

I am so very thankful that Thanksgiving is over.  Not because I don’t love gathering with family and friends to enjoy a delicious feast, but because I really can’t stomach the leftovers from the feast another day!  No more turkey, no more mashed potatoes, and please no more pumpkin cheese cake with marshmallow frosting.

So even though I would love to share all of the fabulous things we made for our Thanksgiving feast…I just don’t think I can do it.  Just know, that it was AMAZING!

Instead I am going to share how I got creative and took some leftover Ile de France Brie from the cheese plate and made a delightful little sandwich which was a complete departure from the typical Thanksgiving Day fare.  I make this sandwich whenever I am fortunate enough to have a Brie like the Il de France, which is nice and creamy.  It was inspired by a sandwich from a little place I used to visit above Gloucester Tube station while living in London.  It was a nice warm treat on a cold London day.

Here’s what you do:  Take one baguette and toast it lightly in the oven.  Once warm, cut the baguette in half down the center.  Spread the brie cheese over one half of the baguette and a hot and spicy mustard (or Dijon mustard) on the other half.  Top the brie with ham and sliced tomatoes and then the other baguette half.  Put back in the oven until cheese is slightly melted.  Ooh, la, la!  And when I feel a little more feisty, I wash this delicious treat down with a nice glass of Sauvignon Blanc.
