Thanksgiving Leftovers Recipe: Green Bean Casserole Grilled Cheese

How do you use your Thanksgiving leftovers?

Thanksgiving is over and we have WAY too many leftovers. I love to get creative with leftovers to keep my family from getting bored eating the same meals. Yesterday, this beautiful sandwich was born. I thought…” I like grilled cheese, and I LOVE green bean casserole, lets marry these two delicious things TOGETHER!”

Simply sandwich your leftover casserole in-between two slices of your favorite cheese and grill like you would any other grilled cheese. We used provolone. YUM! Everyone in the family totally LOVED this Thanksgiving leftovers lunch.

Did you already eat all of your green bean casserole?No worries. I’m sure it will make it’s rounds again at dinner. So make sure to save this idea for when it does!girl holding Green Bean Casserole Grilled Cheese sandwich, giving a thumbs up

    I would have never thought of this myself. Thanks for the idea. I had leftover green bean casserole from Thanksgiving so I tried the recipe. My hubby is someone who believes he has to have some type of meat to consider it a I added a thin slice of the leftover ham to it… (another thanksgiving leftover…) =)
