Thanksgiving memories!Ever since I can remember, the best part about Thanksgiving & Christmas was my grandmother taking out this pie iron and making hot turkey sandwiches for a 'light' supper.
She'd lightly butter a slice of bread & lay the buttered side on the iron. From the fridge came the chilled (and firm) fixings to put on top of the bread: cut-up pieces of turkey, a blob of gravy, pieces of stuffing topped with a few pieces of cranberry sauce.
Second slice of buttered bread (unbuttered side to the food) covered the whole thing.
Close the iron, trim off the bread corners and onto the stove grid it went on a medium flame. She had the 'touch' - knew EXACTLY when it was toasted enough on one side to flip to the other. By then, you were ready to die from the aromas escaping from the iron.
FINALLY, it was ready and Grandma would open the iron over your waiting plate, warning that it was too hot to bite into - just nibble on the crunchy edge while it cooled. DELICIOUS!
Inherited that pie iron and it served for 50 years. The pocket held much more that the electric presses they have now. So glad I can replace it and my kids can pass the tradition they grew up with on to their kids.
(Does a nice job with Easter left overs, too: pieces of ham, spoonful of cheese sauce from dinner's broccoli and a dollop of applesauce.)
