As famed chef Jesse Schenker is always in his restaurants, Recette and The Gander, on Thanksgiving, he has made it a tradition to prepare the ultimate leftover sandwich feast with his wife and two children the next day. Admitting that since his childhood he has always seen the best part of Thanksgiving as the sandwich you can make with the leftovers, over the years he has perfected his sandwich recipes – this year, available for brunch at The Gander, is The Leftover Sandwich with white meat turkey sandwich, topped with cornbread stuffing, cranberry sauce, gravy mayo, white cheddar cheese, two slices of applewood smoked bacon, stacked between thick-cut slices of buttered and griddled brioche. YUM!
