Thanksgiving Leftover Sandwich with Sir Kensington’s

For me the day after Thanksgiving is about celebrating leftovers. While some people decide to spend the day trampling each other for a discounted flat screen, I like to hang out in my pajamas and build the most important sandwich of the year.

You’ve made a version of sandwich before. But this year I’m making it a lil’ bit more special by teaming up with my favorite condiments brand, Sir Kensington’s. Their ketchups are flavorful and fresh tasting, without being overly sweet. Their mayonnaises are rich and smooth, taste homemade and use all-natural ingredients—very good stuff!

By mixing their delish mayonnaise with a few spoonfuls of cranberry sauce, you instantly have a beautifully-hued cranberry mayonnaise. It’s sweet and decadent and perfect for dry-ass turkey.

I also advise putting a bit of gravy on the turkey. That helps too. And you’ll need stuffing and some creamy mashed potatoes if you’re feeling crazy.

I like to use Japanese bread that I pick up from Little Tokyo. It’s perfectly square, almost like good pullman, it’s a little eggy and super soft. I luv it. Of course, brioche or even good wheat bread would also work gloriously.

There’s also a bit of microgreens dressed in olive oil and a pinch of salt for some added freshness. If you had green beans or any sort of leftover salad from the table, get creative and add those.

And since I’m always feeling a little crazy and sad that Thanksgiving is over, I like to build the sandwich higher than I normally would make a sandwich, which means three layers are an absolute must.

I had a bit of leftover cranberry mayonnaise and used it the next day as a dipping sauce for French fries and it was AMAZING. Tart and rich might be my favorite combination ever.

You can pick up Sir Kensington’s at your local Whole Foods. And since the jars are attractive, I also think these jars would be good gifts. I mean, if someone showed up to my holiday party and gave me a jar of Sir Kensington mayonnaise as a hostess gift, I’d know that person understands me as a human.

How to Make a Fancy-Ass Grilled Cheese

How to Make a Fancy-Ass Grilled Cheese | www.acozykitchen.com

I’m gonna be honest with you: there isn’t anything necessarily fancy about the ingredients in this grilled cheese (minus the brioche). This isn’t one of those grilled cheeses filled with expensive cheeses, spreads or meat like prosciutto or anything like that. This is more about the actual preparation.

Here’s why: The first time Josh and I made a grilled cheese together, I was shocked at how haphazard he was with the technique. The heat was too high, burning the bread! The cheese in the center wasn’t completely melted, and instead of butter, he used olive oil. THIS IS ALL WRONG!

Like all awesome things in life, grilled cheeses are ridiculously simple to make. And like all simple things, the details matter A LOT.

Here is a fun “how-to” on making our favorite childhood sandwich. And, as always, if you have tips on this matter that you feel passionate about, please leave them in the comments below; we’ll all benefit.

Fried Green Tomato BLT

Sandwiches

NOWWW, DIS IS A SANDWICH!

No but really, this sandwich is pretty awesome.

We’re in a season transition right now. Kind of always a little awkward, right? I’m dreaming of pumpkin things and apple pies and acorn squash roasting, but I’m still sweating, wearing shorts and eating ice cream. And zucchini are still in abundance and tomatoes are just everywhere. Tomatoes are in seasons almost all summer long, this is true, but these next few weeks are really when we should be consuming and canning them. They’re just perfect.

Even the imperfect, not-really-ripe green tomatoes are perfect. Fry them in cornmeal. Even better. Add lettuce, tomato and bacon. Game changer.
