If you’re like me and you spent the day cooking up a feast, only to find yourself with a lot of leftovers, then I have good news: It’s time for Thanksgiving sandwiches! I’m not talking about your average sandwich either – these ones are special. They use all the delicious bits that usually get thrown away (like leftover turkey and stuffing), but put them together in ways that result in something even better than what you had on Thanksgiving Day itself. So if you’re looking for some new ways to use up all those leftovers from your holiday meal, look no further—I’ve got ten delicious recipes for some seriously satisfying sandwiches.
This sandwich is super easy to make. Just put some cream cheese on two slices of bread, layer them with a thin layer of leftover turkey and leftover cranberry sauce, then top with another slice of bread and cut in half. If you have any leftovers from your Thanksgiving meal that haven’t been eaten yet–and if not, what are you waiting for?–this is an excellent way to use them up. If this sounds good but too simple or boring for your taste buds (it’s not), try adding some other ingredients like shredded lettuce or thinly sliced onion before heating up your sandwich in a microwave or small skillet so it gets nice and crispy!
A club sandwich is a classic American sandwich that’s traditionally made with turkey, bacon, lettuce and tomato. The Ultimate Leftover Turkey Club is the same thing but with one crucial difference: you make it with leftover Thanksgiving turkey instead of regular deli meat.
The Ultimate Leftover Turkey Club starts off with two slices of whole wheat bread (or your favorite sandwich bread). Spread mayonnaise on both sides. Layer sliced turkey breast on one slice of bread; then add sliced avocado, tomato slices and lettuce leaves (or arugula). Top this layer with another slice of whole wheat bread before adding more mayo to the top side of this second slice–this will help keep everything together while you build your masterpiece! Now pile on bite-sized pieces of bacon until they cover both sides of the entire thing; then finish off by adding another layer of lettuce leaves or arugula on top! Wrap up your masterpiece in aluminum foil so it doesn’t get soggy from any juices running out during transit home from work/school/wherever else you choose to enjoy this delicious creation!
If you want to use the leftover turkey meat in a sandwich, here’s what you do:
Next, you’ll want to assemble your sandwich: spread butter on two slices of bread then place one slice in between two other slices to make it easier for you when eating later! Place the turkey breast on top of this stack and then add cranberry sauce followed by thinly sliced brie cheese before closing up that bad boy! Now all that’s left is heating up your panini press or frying pan at medium heat until golden brown perfection occurs–then enjoy!
To make this sandwich, you’ll need:
To cook the turkey: Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F (180 degrees C). Place the foil-wrapped turkey breast in a baking dish and bake until heated through and juices run clear, about 20 minutes. Remove from oven and let rest 10 minutes before slicing into thin slices across grain of meat. To make sauce: Combine mayo with mustard powder, salt & pepper in small bowl; stir well until combined.”
