The Ultimate Leftover Turkey Sandwich Recipe


This afternoon, I made a turkey sandwich for Chris Wooten (my guy) using all of the leftover food from Thanksgiving.

The menu consisted of a turkey sandwich, sweet potato tater tots, and some tasty green beens.  Since nothing was spared, I call it the “ultimate leftover” lunch.

He especially loved the sandwich, and he asked me to make him another one after I blogged about it. (smile)  The ingredients for the sandwich include the following —

  • Challah bread
  • Slices of of turkey white meat
  • Delicatessen mustard
  • Brie cheese
  • Cranberry Sauce
  • A pat of unsalted butter

The steps for this sandwich are super easy!

  1. First off, you are going to cut 1/4” slices of challah bread. If you want the bread to be a little thicker, go with 1/2” thick slices
  2. Spread a teaspoon of the delicatessen mustard onto the bread. If you want your sandwich to be a little sweeter, consider using honey mustard instead.
  3. Spread cranberry sauce over the mustard on one slice of bread.
  4. Place slices of the turkey on top of the cranberry sauce.
  5. Slice the brie, and place the slices (without the skin) onto the turkey.
  6. Close the sandwich and grill it in a pan with the unsalted butter pat.  You only need to grill the sandwich long enough to brown the bread on each side.
