First let me apologize!  My future daughter-in-law and I were so excited about making this that we forgot to take photos.  We were enjoying red wine, cooking up left overs and talking about theirs wedding.  My baby will be getting married in 2018 and I just can't believe it!  So, next time I make this we will take photos but until then I hope the recipe is good enough to walk you through.  Believe me it was delicious.  Enjoy xo  Cindy

I really love Thanksgiving!  The best part is having my family together and the kids in the kitchen with me cooking and baking.  We all love the feast enjoyed together!  However, we all talk about left overs during dinner and what we will be doing with the turkey.  

Of course there has to be a turkey pot pie, turkey hash with poached eggs for breakfast and this year I am making this new recipe an Open Faced Paleo Sandwich!  



  • 1/2 cup left over butternut squash or sweet potato, mashed
  • 2 cups left over stuffing
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
  • Oil for cooking
  • Leftover turkey cut up (white and dark meat), warm or room temperature
  • Sliced cranberry sauce
  • Turkey gravy, hot


  1. Combine the butternut squash or sweet potato mash, stuffing, egg, salt and pepper in a mixing bowl.  Form into 2 patties. 

    Note:  You want them about 1/2 inch thick and large enough as if it was a piece of bread.

  2. Heat a sauté pan over medium high heat then add in a few tablespoons of oil. Once the oil is hot add in the patties and cook each side for about 3 minutes; until brown on each side and warmed all the way through.  Set each stuffing bread on a plate.

  3. Top each stuffing bread with the warm turkey then a slice of cranberry sauce.  Pour gravy on top then enjoy!

    Cindy's Note:  If you don't have any left over squash or sweet potato simply take a sweet potato and shred by using a box grater or disk attachment on your food processor.  Place in a bowl and microwave for 3-4 minutes.  Then add to stuffing mixture and follow instructions.  (I have done this before and it worked great)
