I think I make the best leftover turkey sandwich. Ever. But that’s just my humble opinion. My mom doesn’t like my sandwich, but that might be because there’s no lettuce or tomatoes. But it’s a sandwich I only get to make for about a week once a year so I enjoy every bite and every calorie. It’s a portable Thanksgiving/Christmas dinner, how can you not love that? I know it’s way past the holidays, but keep this handy for next year!
LEFTOVER HOLIDAY TURKEY SANDWICH (serves 1)
- 2 Slices of Whole Wheat Bread (or your choice of sandwich bread)
- 2 or 3 Turkey Slices
- Cranberry Sauce
- Glazed Pearl Onions (optional)
Take a spoon and spread a little gravy on both slices of bread. Sometimes I heat it up a little bit in the microwave (about 20-30 seconds). Lay your turkey on one slice. Make sure the turkey covers the entire piece of bread, corner to corner. You want to make sure you’re getting turkey in every single bite! Heat up your stuffing (about 20-30 seconds) and lay over the turkey, about 1/2 inch from the edge because when you squish it down and as you eat the stuffing will move around. If you have any of the glazed pearl onions left over put a few on top of the stuffing. Then cover with cranberry sauce, again, not quite to the edge as it will also move around. Place your second piece of bread on top and voila-delicious turkey sandwich! If you’re out of gravy, you can also use Dijon mustard, or do one piece of bread with gravy (your top slice) and the bottom slice by the turkey with the Dijon mustard. I hope you enjoy the sandwich as much as I do!
