As far as leftover turkey recipes go, I am not much for using it in soups and other dishes. I personally think that turkey is best left roasted and that’s that. I really only cook turkey two or three times a year. Even so, I LOVE a good leftover turkey sandwich. Over the years, I have developed my “recipe” for the perfect turkey sandwich. Today, I share it with you!
For this sandwich, you must use fresh, soft bread. I use Nature’s Own Butterbread. Make sure that you take the turkey meat and warm it up (I just microwave it for a few minutes). I put mayo on both slices of bread and then, this is the key, sprinkle some salt on the mayo (and sometimes I use pepper too). Before I put the turkey on the bread, I “shred” it with my hands so that there aren’t chunks of turkey on the sandwich. I make sure to evenly place the turkey on the mayo coated bread slices because getting a mouthful of bread and mayo is just yuck! Gotta have turkey in every bite of sandwich! Finally, put the pieces of bread together and you are ready to chow down!
I know that it seems simple, and it is. I have found, over the years, that there are some people who really don’t know how to make a good leftover sandwich and they usually ask me to make one for them because of my little tricks that make it perfect! Now you can be a leftover turkey sandwich pro too!
