Need some ideas for your Thanksgiving leftovers? These Leftover Turkey Gouda Grilled Cheese sandwiches are easy to throw together for a simple lunch the next day. Because who wants to cook the day after Thanksgiving?
I love a good grilled cheese. In fact when I was in high school I would live off of these almost every day after school.
To me there’s just something so comforting about the ooey gooey cheesiness that’s inside of perfectly golden crispy bread.
Adding leftover Turkey and making this more of a grown up version by adding in the Gouda Cheese… Now this is adult comfort food. 🙂
When I went Gluten Free a few years back I thought my grilled cheese days were over.
But then I discovered some really delicious Gluten Free breads. Now I’ve tried and tested several. Here are my two absolute favorites.
Udi’s Gluten Free Bread
You can find these usually in the freezer ‘bread’ section of most grocery stores. Target actually carries the Canyon Bakehouse brand fresh in their Deli/Bakery section of the store.
I love both of these brands because the flavor of the bread actually tastes like real bread (if you’ve ever had a gluten free bread that tasted like cardboard then you know what I mean).
Plus the durability of both of these breads is amazing. In other words, the bread holds together and doesn’t crumble or fall apart like some GF breads I’ve had in the past.
Just a quick note, these Gluten Free breads are slightly smaller than regular bread. So your cheese might stick out a bit.
For me that’s perfect, because I love the melted cheese that hits the frying pan and gets all nice and crispy. It’s like candy to me. 🙂
You could add whatever cheese you have on hand to make this sandwich, but I highly recommend Apple Smoked Gouda. The flavor from this cheese along with the Turkey is A-Mazing!
I could seriously live on these for the rest of my life. 🙂
Hope you all have a great Thanksgiving!
