Hot Turkey Sandwiches (For Leftover Turkey)

Total Time
Prep 10 mins

This uses left-over chopped turkey. We grew up calling these "turkey burgers"- but that was before ground turkey, so I'm calling them "turkey sandwiches" to avoid any confusion. WE LOVE THESE. They were a favorite with my family when I was growing up, and now they are a favorite with my hubby and kids. Something nice and different. The melted cheese and mayo together are just heavenly. I like my cheese cut up in fairly large cubes, not diced. Adjust the onion to your taste. We look forward to thanksgiving left-overs just for this! FOR OAMC: leave out the mayo and freeze remaining ingredients (expect buttered buns) in an airtight bag with all of the air removed. Let thaw in fridge before adding mayo.

I am a turkey and cheese lover. This sandwich is absolutely divine. A great change from just warmed up leftover turkey. This is a great sandwich anytime and is simple to make!

Wow, this is the best left over turkey recipe. Not your normal turkey sandwich, it is nice to have a change even from an old favorite! My husband asked for this twice in one week ! Great Hot sandwich on a cold night.
