Thanksgiving Leftovers Sandwich inspired by Succotash’s Maggie Cristo


 (2) waffles

2-3 pieces leftover ham

2 T Smokey Cranberry Sauce (recipe on next page   )

2 T Goat Cheese


 Make your Smokey Cranberry Sauce, sit in the fridge for a few hours to set up. This can also be done the night before.

Set out goat cheese so it can warm up.

Cook waffles according to directions.

In a skillet, add a bit of oil, and heat to medium heat. Add ham slices, cook for a few minutes to heat it up. Remove from heat.

To build your sandwich, spread 1 T goat cheese on each waffle.

Add 1 T of Smokey Cranberry Sauce to each waffle, spread over the goat cheese.

Place ham on top of one waffle, and add the other waffle on top.

Place the skillet you cooked your ham in back on the stove and heat to medium heat.

Add your waffle sandwich to the pan and cook for 1-2 minutes per side. This will crisp up the sandwich.

Remove to a plate, cut in half.
