The Best Leftover Turkey Sandwich

What You Need:

  • 4 Soft Buns (buttered and toasted)
  • 8 slices of bacon
  • ½ cup pickled red onions (1 red onion sliced thin, ¼ cup sugar, ¼ cup red wine vinegar, ¼ cup water, cinnamon stick, 1 slice ginger, 1 tbsp mustard seeds, 1 tbsp coriander seeds)
  • ½ cup cranberry mayonnaise (1/4 cup leftover cranberry sauce, ¼ cup mayonnaise)
  • 2 cups shredded dark meat heated with 1 cup leftover turkey gravy
  • 2 cups of stuffing (hot)
  • 8 slices of leftover white turkey breast
  • 8 slices triple cream brie cheese
  • 8 leaves of butter lettuce


  1. Slowly render the slices of bacon over medium low heat in a non stick sauté pan.
  2. When the bacon is crispy, remove from the sauté pan, and heat the turkey breast in the bacon fat until hot.
  3. Remove the turkey from the pan and toast the buns in the bacon fat as well.
  4. To build the sandwiches lay out all of the buns and spread mayonnaise onto each toasted surface.
  5. Build in this order: bread, lettuce, bacon, brie, stuffing, turkey breast, turkey leg meat, pickled onions, bread
