Turkey Sandwiches

One of the things that things that we love about Thanksgiving is the leftovers. As a general rule, I don't care for dinner the second time around. Although, I do serve leftovers for lunch several days a week. My mother taught me, "waste not, want not."

But I purposely save room for Thanksgiving leftovers. Late at night, after all the guests have left, the house is restored to normal, we bundled up in our pajamas, tucked the youngers in bed and turned on some Bing Crosby... we sneak back to the kitchen and pull out all the leftovers we just put away so carefully.

I am still suffering some jet lag and made the mistake of lying on the bed for "a minute" after our company left. I disappointed the girls by being a party pooper and going to sleep.

I made it up to them this morning by serving turkey sandwiches for breakfast. Allen said I need to write about how to make the perfect turkey sandwiches. If you have read Allen's blog, then you know sandwiches are a big deal around here.

So here is the deal. Start with two slices of rye bread. Spread with Hellmann's mayonnaise. I refuse to eat any other kind, but suit yourself with your favorite brand. Top with cheese. I personally prefer provolone but swiss and white American are popular choices, too. Next, comes turkey. Spread with cranberry relish. Then, and don't skip this step, a generous helping of dressing. Smoosh the top piece of bread on and eat it very carefully.



  1. Perfect idea! I would have never thought of this. Thank you.

  2. I will never look at a turkey sandwich the same again. I love cranberry this sound yummy.
    Blessings, andrea

  3. I was raised eating these, but, I was not going to have one for breakfast today....until now!

  4. I love turkey sandwiches with stuffing in them. And, yes, it's Hellman's for me, too!

  5. Turkey sandwiches are the BEST! I like that picture of you and me too.
