Now if you are like me, you cooked a turkey that was way to big for your family. Ours was a gift from our son in law, Jose. He bought us a twenty three pound bird and it was way too big, even though we fed a crowd. So for the last couple of days, we have been experimenting with turkey sandwiches. Now my husband Leo loves turkey sandwiches but he is a generic kind of guy and likes just plain turkey with mayo. My son in law David loves sandwiches with the whole dinner on it; turkey, gravy and stuffing and mayo. But my daughter and I are sick of turkey the next day. So here are some recipes that we tried that turned out pretty good.
I hope this helps you get rid of some of those turkey leftovers and I hope your family loves your sandwiches as much as my family did.
Editor's Note: Sorry that we didn't get this up in time for Christmas leftovers. Hopefully some of you have a bargain turkey in the freezer that needs some inspiration.
You can also take left over turkey and cube it up and mix with a box of stove top dressing, and a can of mushroom soup or gravy and bake at 350 about 30-35 min and enjoy.
Those recipes sound great & easy, i'll keep them in mind next year. Especially that open face mushroom one.
I love turkey but can definitely get tired of it too. My honey makes an incredible sandwich that i can eat forever. it's the turkey leftovers on bread with mashed potatoes, cranberry sauce, & Blue cheese salad dressing!! the blue cheese flavor makes it the most incredible taste combo, you really have to try.
If you've ever watched "Friends" on tv, Monica used to make her brother a special sandwich with Thanksgiving leftovers. The turkey sandwich with the "moistmaker" which was bread,turkey, and a middle slice of bread soaked in gravy. Then turkey then bread. The gravy soaked bread was the moistmaker-always sounded delicious, and always wanted to try it-but forget every year, figures, haha.
I got a turkey before Thanksgiving just for the 2 of us. I cut it up as I do a chicken Put enough for a meal in plastic bags, froze it so I can take out a bag at the time to fix.
