Corned Beef and Slaw Sandwich

8-Corned-Beef-and-Slaw-Sandwich

A great way to reinvent leftovers is to make a sandwich out of them.

Not just any sandwich….

…but a sandwich with globs of slaw on it.

The sandwich is even better if the slaw is so packed that it’s falling out of the sides of the sandwich.  YUM.

This recipe is for leftover corned beef but ham or turkey would be super delish as well.

Feel free to use your fave bread or change around the ingredients to your liking.

I used sandwich bread but a big old bun would be super tasty too.

Have a great week.

Ok, let’s check out the ingredients.
