When cooking for two, recipes for lunch almost always include sandwiches. Bread, especially dark bread, is the perfect carbohydrate to keep your body ready for after-lunch events.
But make sure you have enough protein to keep your energy up as well. Add fruit and veggies to round out the meal, or serve a sandwich with a hot bowl of delicious soup.
A special lunch for two is also the perfect reason for using up leftovers. During the holidays, turkey sandwiches are the norm. This year, try adding festive foods that are not normally served, like cranberries, to your sandwich recipes.
Ingredients You Will Need:
3 tablespoons Miracle Whip
1 cup turkey, chopped
1 stalk celery, diced
2 tablespoons walnuts, chopped
2 green onions, thinly sliced
2 tablespoons pineapple-flavored cream cheese, softened
4 slices dark bread
2 cranberry sauce slices (thin)
Combine the Miracle Whip with the turkey, celery, walnuts and onions, and set aside. Spread the cream cheese on two slices of bread, and then add a slice of cranberry sauce to each. On the opposite two slices of bread, spread the turkey mixture. Put the two slices of bread together for the perfect sandwich.
Serve with a cup of turkey noodle soup, a sourdough baguette or hunk of French bread and an ice-cold glass of milk.
