Melt Bar & Grilled owner shares the perfect turkey sandwich recipe for Thanksgiving leftovers

Looking for a creative way to reinvent your leftovers from Thanksgiving dinner? Matt Fish, owner of Melt Bar & Grilled, has a must-try turkey sandwich recipe.

CLEVELAND — Are you tired of turkey yet? Stuffed with all that stuffing?

Instead of reheating those leftovers just like you did last year, there are definitely some creative options when gobbling up all that extra food from Thanksgiving dinner.

Melt Bar & Grilled owner Matt Fish dropped by Lunch Break with Jay Crawford on Friday afternoon to share his recipe for a special turkey sandwich -- and this thing is massive.

“Honestly, there’s no wrong way to build this sandwich at home because it’s going to be big, it’s going to be messy and it’s going to be delicious," he said.

Here's how to pile up this massive meal made from Thanksgiving leftovers:

- Open your two pieces of bread.

- Place butternut squash on one piece of bread, and gravy on the other.

- Mashed potatoes are next, followed by turkey and stuffing.

And then there’s the cranberry sauce.

“This can be on the side as well," Fish said. "I know that cranberry sauce is kind of a polarizing flavor. Some people like it, some people don’t. I personally love it. It’s part of my Thanksgiving dinner.”

- Once you've made your decision on the cranberry sauce, put the sandwich together and dig in!

“Now you have leftovers for your leftovers.”
