I'm Kathy Lloyd. I grew up on a farm near Elmore, MN and have lived in Fairmont for over 44 years. I have always loved to cook, even when I was very young. I loved to stay with my Aunt Dorothy during my childhood. She was a great cook and used to give me freedom in the kitchen, teaching me along the way. She made recipes from our Norwegian heritage, along with pies, homemade doughnuts, yeast bread and cinnamon rolls.

Since we have seen all four of our children and their families sometime this fall, and Christmas is in just a few weeks, I’ve decided not to cook this Thanksgiving! We are going out for dinner, the main problem with that is that there will be no leftovers.. That is one advantage of hosting the Holidays, the yummy leftovers. Today I am sharing a recipe using leftovers, a recipe my sister, Doris shared with me. Its quick and easy and a favorite.
The Newbury Sandwich:
Cut a thick slice of sourdough bread, place on a microwaveable plate. Put a layer of cranberry sauce on the bread, next layer with pieces of left over turkey (chicken would work too), cover meat with lots of shredded cheddar cheese and sprinkle with crumbled crisp bacon or bacon bits. Heat in microwave for about 2 minutes, until cheese is melty. Makes a really large open face sandwich to be eaten with a fork.
Didn’t I say it was quick and easy? Remember to count your blessings, have a safe and Happy Thanksgiving!
