After all the shopping and prepping and cooking you did last week, you probably don’t want to step in the kitchen again for a long, long time. But a guy’s gotta eat. And use up those leftovers sitting in the fridge in the next couple of days.
Here are a couple of recipes for quick sandwiches, that are perfect for doctoring up leftover turkey. (Or use the fresh stuff when that runs out. Or goes bad.) They’re from Santa Barbara Bay, and both feature their Caramelized Onion & Roasted Garlic Ranch Dip, a great alternative to using plain old mayo or mustard on a sandwich. (It’s available at supermarkets nationwide.) For more recipes, and to see their line of party dips and spreads go to www.santabarbarabay.com.
