Has everyone woken up from them turkey/food coma yet? I definitely have, and was happy to realize that today is the day after Thanksgiving which can only mean one thing: TURKEY SANDWICHES! As much as we all enjoy the bird, potatoes, stuffing, cranberry sauce, salad, corn and pie, I think you'll agree that one of the best, if not THE best thing about Thanksgiving is the leftovers.
I love eating the cold turkey right out of the tupperware my parents sent me home with, but my absolute favorite thing in the world to make with leftover Thanksgiving turkey is sandwiches. There are different variations of the turkey sandwich but I normally chop up the turkey and make it into a turkey salad, with diced onions, celery, pickle relish, kewpie mayo, dijon mustard and lots of black pepper. Another tradition is to pile some stuffing and turkey between two slices of bread and douse it with gravy, although I guess that's quite a decadent sandwich! I'll be making both of those very soon, but today I made a sandwich I'd never made before, based on a sandwich I'd had at a restaurant recently that blew my socks off.
