Who knew leftovers could be so good?! We sliced our homemade yeast rolls and topped them with swiss cheese and leftover deep-fried cajun turkey. Then we put them in the oven at 350 long enough to melt the cheese and brown the rolls. Once they were out of the oven, we added mayo and whatever leftover toppings (green beans, mashed potatoes, etc.) we wanted. I was most skeptical about the cranberry sauce, but it was really good on the sandwich! Thanks!
This is exactly how I like my turkey sandwich...I actually enjoy this more then the turkey on the day. I use some butter on the bread too..Yum!
This was a tasty sandwich, I do not know if I would crave it however. A great way to use leftovers....I think it was more of a texture thing with me. Just a little too soft and mushy in the mouth....but the flavor was very good.
This is my favorite sandwich to make after Thanksgiving! In fact, I am having it tonight for dinner :). I like to buy extra rolls and make mini sammies on those. Thanks for posting
I have been eating turkey sandwiches the evening of the big turkey dinner and the whole week after like this since as long as I can remember! I love it this way, the cranberry sauce and mayo are the most important part! Tastes great on a leftover white dinner roll too!
As much as I enjoy the Thanksgiving dinner, this sandwich is what I crave every year. My brothers all agree. We've been eating these since we were kids...exactly as you have posted. I want one right now. Thanks!!!!
I just love this sandwich. Thanksgiving is just not the same if I don't have one. I love it on fresh white bread. Makes my mouth water just thinking about having one.
Hi Boca Pat, am so embarassed was going through some recipes and I found yours, where I had made a note on 09/26/06 to write a review and tell you how much we all enjoyed your sandwich, even thoguh we ate it in Sept. We usually have turkey every six weeks or so and I just forgot please forgive me! OOPPS! Made it just as posted but we added the gravy in which I soaked the bread (got that from Friends) and made it open faced! Thank you so much for posting, will be using it again, Diane :)
Seriously. Is anything better than this? I doubt it. Been making it for years. I prefer big, thick crusty slices of homemade white bread to the Wonder bread, but other than that, just spot on for us.
I refuse to relegate turkey, dressing, and cranberry sauce to Thanksgiving only. I hide a container of my mom's cornbread dressing in the back of the freezer and pull it out in the Spring so I can enjoy it all over again. This sandwich is good, good stuff. I used thickly sliced smoked deli turkey, mom's dressing, and whole-berry cranberry sauce with plenty of Hellman's mayonnaise. Lovely. Thanks, Boca Pat :)
