All turkey'd out? Not me!

We host Thanksgiving dinner at our house every year, this year... 35 family and friends! So being more safe than sorry I roasted 2 turkeys, combined weight of 40 lbs. Needless to say I have a lot of leftover turkey! What to do? Well Friday night we had Thanksgiving all over again, meaning the usual turkey with gravy, stuffing, mashed potatoes ect. Then Saturday and Sunday rolled around and I didn't want Thanksgiving anymore! ***insert some creative brainstorming*** I thought why not some white turkey chili (more to come on that one) or a turkey melt? So there you have it, I am off to Sprouts to get some bread and cheeses to concoct a warm, gooey, cheesy, perfectly toasted turkey melt.

2 (or more) slices of sourdough bread
1 slice each of cheddar, havarti and provolone cheese
appx 2 T of grated or shredded Parmesan cheese
a handful of cooked, shredded turkey
a bit of butter or margarine

Heat sauté pan over medium heat
Spread butter or margarine on one side of each piece of bread
Sprinkle parm cheese on the buttered side of each piece of bread
Place one slice of bread buttered side down in the pan
Layer the cheddar cheese, then turkey meat, then remaining cheeses and top with the second slice of bread buttered side up
Cook 3-5 minutes on each side until golden brown
Let it cool for a few minutes then slice and enjoy!
