There are leftovers galore in this kitchen! This recipe is as makeshift as it gets, putting to use leftover goodies from this year's Thanksgiving feast. I took inventory and put together a simple sandwich that brings together classic turkey day flavors in a unique way. The turkey adds a meaty texture and mild taste and serves as the perfect backdrop to the brie's bitter and tangy overtones and the sweetness of the cranberry dressing. A good sprinkle of black pepper adds a nice spiciness.

For this sandwich, make sure to choose a light bread that won't drown the textures of the turkey and brie. I like to use a thin bread, either whole-wheat or something a little more interesting, like pumpernickel. Also, go light on the cranberry dressing to avoid a sugar overload. Enjoy!
