Creamy Open Faced Turkey (or Chicken) Sandwich

I have yet another tasty way that you can use up leftover Thanksgiving turkey once the big day is over.

Create a simple open face sandwich topped with a creamy sauce coating chunks of tender turkey served over crisp slices of toast. Finish it off with a sprinkling of fresh diced tomato. It adds a nice freshness.

This is a great way to enjoy that leftover turkey but it is different from the regular Thanksgiving flavors.
