Turkey Salad Sandwiches

Turkey Salad Sandwiches


If you’re anything like this family, you have leftover Thanksgiving turkey in your refrigerator, which is great! I mean, I don’t have to cook for days and after such a grand feast (and all that time spent doing dishes– blah!), we all need to kick back for a few days.


Leftovers are the best when it comes to  this fall holiday.


Except for one thing: I get bored.


I get bored with the same cranberries and mashed potatoes over and over and over again. I get bored with turkey for breakfast, lunch and dinner. I think I dreamt about turkey last night. That is how much a part of my life it is right now. Yes, these leftovers are yummy and so easy (they’re literally just sitting there waiting to be consumed), but I’ve eaten them for 4 days and it’s time for something new.

It is very simple and easy to adjust. You can mix and match whatever leftovers are in your refrigerator: leftover cranberries, a little stuffing or some baked squash– you name it, it will be delicious!


Got 10 minutes? You are just a chop, mix, and a serve away from finishing up those Thanksgiving leftovers.
