    I like to make sandwiches with our leftover turkey. My sister made something like these ham pinwheels for Thanksgiving and they were so good!

    I bet my husband would love these. I think he could live off of bacon. 🙂

    I am reading this and my sons walk by and tell me that I REALLY need to make this for dinner! I think now that they are all Turkey-ed out, HAm sounds like a good choice for dinner. I may even have all of this in my fridge – just have to run up for the Hormel Spiral!
