When November 25 rolls around, it’s always a challenge to figure out what to make with all of those wonderful Thanksgiving leftovers that is a notch more exciting than a casserole or pot pie. Chef Madeline Rubidoux suggests creating vegan waffle sandwiches stacked with everything from the ubiquitous turkey and cranberry sauce to apple and mushroom stuffing, gravy or yams. Throw on a slice or two of cheese and a sprinkle of truffle salt for good measure and you’ve got a sandwich fit for a pilgrim with a gourmet palate. Happy Thanksgiving!
