This cranberry sauce leftovers recipe has been sponsored by Pepperidge Farm® but all opinions expressed here are my own.
There are certain foods that I grew up on that I have come to realize were not all that delicious. Canned cranberry sauce is one of them. My mom was a great cook but for some reason, we ALWAYS used canned cranberry sauce rather than homemade. When I got out on my own after college, I decided to try my hand at making it from scratch. It was beyond delicious and every year I make a double batch because I could eat cranberry sauce leftovers for DAYS and be perfectly happy. Of course, I love them straight out of the bowl but I also enjoy finding creative ways to use that leftover cranberry sauce in other dishes.

Thanksgiving Leftover Sandwich Tips
Of course, the type of bread you choose for your cranberry sauce leftovers sandwich is key! Pepperidge Farm Harvest Blends breads contain special blends of whole grains and seeds that deliver a new and unique eating experience. You can choose from Pepperidge Farm Harvest Grains Spouted Grain Bread, Harvest Grains Seeded Grain Bread, or Harvest Grains Ancient Grains Bread. Having tried them all out this weekend, I can tell you that I really enjoyed the softness of the bread combined with the bits of grain and seeds.
Using Leftover Cranberry Sauce
Now, you already have the delicious cranberry sauce, right? Well, skip the plain old boring American cheese and use a good, sharp cheddar. If you cooked a ham for the holidays, by all means, use slices of fresh ham. If you don’t have fresh ham sitting around you can use sandwich meat from the deli like I did.
Of course, you could also pair leftover turkey with this easy sandwich recipe but personally I like the combination of ham and cheddar much more! I must admit, I loaded up my sandwich with as much leftover cranberry sauce as that bread would hold! Have leftover turkey, too? Use that instead of deli meat. Or, use it to make homemade turkey enchiladas instead!
