Also known as the ultimate Thanksgiving Leftover Melt.
There is mashed potatoes (in the waffles!!), turkey (that your gonna butter up!), cranberry sauce, brie and some bacon if you are into it.
Oh, and an egg. You need the extra protein for all that shopping today.
Are you guys shopping today?
I never have gotten into the whole black Friday thing. I just buy everything online and can pretty much always find a good deal. I learned from the best though, my mother is the ULTIMATE online shopper. Give here an item to buy and she will find it for the cheapest price you can get. No doubt about it.
Anyway, how was your Thanksgiving?
I made four pies (tossed one), went through four pounds of butter and I do not even know how many potatoes, made two sweet potatoes casseroles, a TON of these rolls and a whole lot of roasted veggies too. And you know what? I am less tired now than I am after a normal day in the Kitchen. Thanksgiving is like nothing to me these days.
Oh, and we got our Christmas tree! It is a Thanksgiving tradition and I think this year’s tree it the best one yet. It is kind of picture perfect.
We always chop ours down in the middle of nowhere. We do have to get a permit, but it’s only ten dollars (and you can get it ahead of time) and you can get the BEST trees! Plus, I do not think I could ever go and buy a tree in a lot.
I am all about cutting it down fresh from the woods!
Alright, so these melts.
They are amazing. Who knew that mashed potatoes would make for the best waffles ever?
But really, they are the best waffles.
It is probably because of all the butter and cream I added to my mashed potatoes. Hey, got to make them good on Thanksgiving!
The rest of the sandwich is a spin on a sandwich I made all summer long. Smashed avocado, brie, jelly (swapped cranberry sauce) and turkey.
The eggs only happened every so often and the bacon is a new thing.
These melts are perfect and you can adjust them to your liking. Add as much turkey, cranberry sauce and brie (I added a ton of brie) as you want. Throw in some gravy if you are into it, leave out the bacon, heck you can even leave out the turkey and make this a vegetarian sandwich.
I mean, how could it not be? It’s a waffle melt with brie and avocado!!
Alright, time to go serve the “second” Thanksgiving. The house is FULL and thankfully so is the fridge!
Oh, and do the egg. The egg is so good!
