What do u like on turkey sandwich? Sat, 11/29/03 2:04 AM (permalink)
With all the leftover turkey a lot of it is going to be made into sandwiches. So I'd like to know, how do you like yours?

Me? I like FRESH potato bread with a lot of Miracle Whip on both slices, a good portion of turkey and a slice of cheese. Maybe some sweet pickle.

    Mmmm. A subject dear to my heart, and so simple.

    White bread
    Hellman's mayo
    lots of kosher salt & freshly ground black pepper (Sarawak for choice.)
    Canned jellied cranberry sauce if my wife is watching.
    If it's real good, dressing.

      I like leftover white breast meat, cornbread and mushroom stuffing, cranberry orange relish, and giblet gravy on a hoagie roll or a crusty loaf.
      No need for mayo or Miracle Whip with the giblet gravy.

          soft rye, generous slathering of Hellmans mayo, slices of deep-red, vine-ripened tomatoes, and slightly warmed turkey (in microwave).

            Turkey breast on fresh thick cut seedless rye .. homemade mayo .. ripe tomatoes .. salt and pepper and maybe a slice cheddar or provolone.

            *Will sub Pepperidge Farms Nine Grain Bread if fresh rye is not available.

              Dressing and gravy, if available. If not, cranberry mustard, oh yeah!

                For me it's simply with lettuce and mayo on white bread, even if I do sound like Steve Martin in 'The Jerk'. (But I don't need to wrap it in cellophane).

                  Darkmeat turkey - white is too dry
                  A sprinkle of Lawrys
                  Hard roll, preferably poppyseed

                  No additional adornments are necessary....

                    Turkey, white or dark, between 2 slices of white bread with lots of real hot gravy poured over top!

                      Dearfolk,
                      Has anyone - seriously for once, now - tried slaw on a turkey sandwich? I bet it would be good, especially if the turkey was on the dry side, which it often tends to be.
                      Last night, I had a new concoction at The Grill here in Athens - a chicken salad melt on rye bread! It was exquisite!! Next trip in, I'm going to ask for a hit of slaw on it and see if it improves or ruins their creation. Think I'll try it as an adjunct on the side first.
                      Don't ask me, though, to try slaw on a livermush sandwich.
                      Crunchily, Ort. Carlton in Just Grate(d) Athens, Georgia.

                        It's simple. White bread, mayonanaise, turkey, stuffing, a slice of jellied cranberry sauce, and salt and pepper.

                          Verryyyy Interesting....All the other stuff; dressing, giblet gravy, cranberry sauce and the different breads. Just what makes this country of ours great.

                          Oh, and the # of people specifying Hellman's mayo. What if you live West of the Rockies? Will Best Foods do? Supposed to be the same thing, just the name changes at the divide.

                            ....*Sigh*............

                            When you eat dinner at someone else's house, there's no leftover turkey.

                            Bummer.

                              Not very exciting but I like turkey on white bread with mayo and sweet pickle slices.

                                This reminds me that about a week ago someone on another board was giving his pros & cons about warehouse shopping. He was split 50/50 but one statement he made stood out to me. He said that while the name brand mayo was offered at a good price for the brand, he could buy a no name mayo at the regular grocery for far less. All I could think when I read that statement was, "This must be a Yankee! For surely no self respectin' Southerner would use a no name mayo!"

                                  My wife would kick my behind if I came home with anything other than Hellman's and we are both Yankees. (Even if we have lived in Florida for 23 years).

                                    2 ways:

                                    Open faced: white bread, turkey, dressing, and hot gravy over the top.

                                    or turkey, cranberry sauce, leaf lettuce and cream cheese sandwiched between two pieces of bread.

                                      Cream cheese?? I would never have thought about it on a sandwich. Doesn't really appeal to me either, sorry.

                                        It must be hard to eat carrying around that lamp and that chair.

                                        I like it simple: turkey, mayo, and an insane amount of freshly ground black pepper. Stuffing gets its own sandwich.

                                          Hey -

                                          Has anyone tried that stuff made by Woeber called the Sandwich Pal? It's a combination of cranberries and horseradish. It's bright pink and comes in a squeeze bottle. Yummy on a sandwich.

                                            Has anyone tried that stuff made by Woeber called the Sandwich Pal? It's a combination of cranberries and horseradish. It's bright pink and comes in a squeeze bottle. Yummy on a sandwich.

                                            It's also yummy if you put a dab on some ritz crackers, a slice of cheese on top, and run it either under the broiler or through the micro.

                                            Yoweee. Thanks. I'm going to try it tonight. Any preference on the type of cheese? (I live in Wisconsin).

                                              Has anyone - seriously for once, now - tried slaw on a turkey sandwich? I bet it would be good, especially if the turkey was on the dry side, which it often tends to be.

                                              My favorite turkey sandwich, non-Thanksgiving variety, invloves mixing some russian (or thousand island) dressing with the coleslaw. This is a deli-style sandwich, so thin-sliced white-meat turkey goes on rye bread, and pile on the russified slaw. I also add a few pieces of lettuce. This one's a winner!

                                                  I know this sounds like an odd combination but we used to sell tons of them here at L'Aroma Cafe and Bakery.....eggplant pate, turkey, cranberry sauce on white baguette. For me, bring on the Hellmann's mayo, lettuce and tomato!

                                                      Hmmm.

                                                      And you knew this was coming, didn't you?

                                                      do you remember the recipe?

                                                      I was just waiting .
                                                      Bear with me, we used to use 30 lb. blocks of cream cheese, I have to scale it down.
                                                      OK, this sounds pretty reasonable:
                                                      2 whole eggplants
                                                      3# cream cheese
                                                      10 cloves garlic

                                                      Brush the eggplants with oil and roast (whole) uncovered at 400 for about an hour or until they are cooked all the way. Cool. Put the garlic cloves in a shallow baking dish, just cover with oil and roast at the same time as the eggplants, they should be golden brown and will take slightly less time to cook than the eggplant. Cool these also. Bring the cream cheese to room temp. Peel the skins off the eggplants and discard. Combine all ings.
                                                      plus some freshly ground pepper in a food processor or Kitchenaide mixer fitted with paddle (preferred).
                                                      Serve on crackers, bread, sandwiches, use as a dip for crudites, whatever! It's easy, it keeps forever and is a nice snack/condiment.
                                                      I used to put it on a vegetarian sandwich composed of grilled eggplant, grilled peppers, fresh mozzarella, basil leaves, crunchy Romaine and tomato.

                                                          Sure! Why not! There aren't any overwhelming tastes in this pate so it's pretty flexible as to where you can use it.

                                                            I'm probably anti-american, or at least not brought up correctly, but I hate leftover turkey sandwiches! Roast Turkey right out of the oven..Great! But leftover cold turkey...yuck!
