Sandwich Spread Recipes for Thanksgiving Leftovers

Everybody loves Thanksgiving leftovers, especially the homemade rolls with turkey and ham. Here are three favorite quick and easy spreads that will make those sandwiches extra special. Cranberry Mayonnaise, Honey Mustard Spread, and Olive Pimento Spread all have 3 ingredients or less and can be mixed in less than 5 minutes. All three can be made several days ahead and refrigerated until ready to serve.

Cranberry Mayonnaise


This spread is especially good with roasted turkey. Use any leftover cranberry sauce jellied or whole berry; whole berry, however, is the best.

Makes about 1 1/4 cups
width="280"
1/2 cup mayonnaise
2/3 cup whole berry cranberry sauce

Honey Mustard Spread


The flavor of this spread can be changed by using different mustards. For those who like a spread with a bite, hot mustard is perfect; Dijon is a bit milder. Plain yellow mustard is also good. This is especially good on ham, and leftovers can be spread on chicken breasts, pork chops, or fish fillets before grilling.

Makes about 1/2 cup
width="290"
1/4 cup mayonnaise
1/4 cup sliced salad olives with pimentos, well-drained and chopped
1 tablespoon honey
