Friday’s friend

IMG00077
Rick recommended "Friday's friend" as the perfect day after Thanksgiving treat.  Every year we have just pulled out the dinner from the night before and pick on our favorites.  Friday's friend was hands down the best post-Thanksgiving sandwich.  Will be back again for more next year….or maybe when I grill that Turkey this summer.

This recipe comes directly from the Ricks Picks NYC website The Daily Brine.

A ciabatta loaf
Leftover turkey
Extra sharp cheddar cheese
A couple of onions
Rick's Picks Green Tomato Condiment
Butter
Turkey gravy

The recipe:

Peel and chop the onions into little pieces. Sauté the onions in a
pan with the butter until they are caramelized. Reserve the onions on
the side. Slice the ciabatta in half lengthwise. On one side, put
slices of turkey and slices of the Green Tomato Condiment pickles. On
the other side of the bread, put the caramelized onions and the cheddar
cheese. Put the two sandwich halves together and place them in a panini
press (if you don't have a panini press, you can use a frying pan and
weigh the sandwich down with a second pot). Grill the sandwich on both
sides until it is golden brown. And… viola! Friday's Friend. Dip your
creation in warm turkey gravy for an added bonus… it's an Italian
sandwich concept with a French dip twist… it's like you are standing
on top of the Alps looking in both directions!
