Who’s excited about Thanksgiving? Can I get a WHOOP WHOOP?
I hear Criss Cross pumped UP in the background of this post!
That’s right. Thanksgiving make ya wanna, “JUMP JUMP!”
And it’s so NOT “wiggly wiggly wack.” It’s where it’s AT!!
Ok, I will stop. But it’s not that I want to!!
Thanksgiving is one of my favorite holidays for many reasons; one, it’s like Christmas without all of the gifting pressure; two, it involves CRANBERRY SAUCE SLICES, and three, you get to eat lots of carbohydrates with the ones you love. #signmeup
This week’s recipe is an easy way to eat the rest of that leftover turkey AND the sweet potato that didn’t make it into the casserole. Actually, come to think of it, if you tried really hard I bet you could smash up the mashed sweet potato and instead make a patty/bread slice of sorts. However, this way is much easier if you are like me and plan to binge-watch the new season of Gilmore Girls in your pajamas with your sister the day after Thanksgiving. So this way definitely appeals.

Alright my friends! Happy almost Turkey Day and mad PROPs to you for doing your leftovers planning already. #winning
Sweet Potato “Bread” Sandwiches with Roasted Turkey and Cranberry Sauce
These roasted sweet potato slices act like bread in a delicious, post-Thanksgiving treat.
What You Will Need:
- 1 medium sweet potato, sliced into about 1/4 inch slices
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- Sea salt
- Freshly cracked black pepper
- Olive oil mayonnaise (to taste)
- Shredded turkey
- Slices cranberry sauce (to taste)
What You Will Do:
- Preheat oven to 425. Line a dark metal baking sheet with aluminum foil and spray lightly with cooking spray of choice.
- In a large bowl, toss sweet potato slices with olive oil, then add salt and pepper to taste and combine.
- Spread sweet potato slices on baking sheet, making sure to leave room around the edge of each slice so the air can circulate and ensure crispiness similar to a bread crust.
- Bake the slices for 10 minutes, then flip. Bake 10 minutes more, remove from oven, and allow slices to cool slightly.
- Once the slices are cool to the touch, spread each sweet potato slice with mayonnaise. Top one slice with shredded turkey, and the other with a cranberry slice.
- Sandwich the two slices together and chow down!
