I made a Turkey Wrap instead of a sandwich, with butter-sauteed leftover roast turkey meat, with lettuce and cherry tomatoes and drizzled with a mayo-mint sauce mix! Great way to use up the turkey and its accompanying sauce with a light twist. It was all then wrapped up in a flour tortilla and chowed down while watching holiday movies =D
We spent thanksgiving here down at my roomate’s mom’s house. Being southern to the bone, no matter how many years she lived in Cali, we had plenty of cornbread and collard greens left over. She makes a very spicy and tender rendition of the greens. For the last of the left-overs we had turkey sandwiches with collard greens, swiss cheese, turkey meat and a little bit of left over gravy on some think texas toast bread. It was great!
I usually put the turkey, or another type of meat such as: eye of round roast, ham, pepperoni, etc., on a tortilla with red onion slices, shredded low – fat Cheddar, low – fat Mozzarella and Monterey jack cheeses and a piece of whatever lettuce I have handy. Then wrap it all up and heat it on a non – stick grill over medium heat until all sides are browned and the cheeses are melted. I don’t use any butter and the low – fat cheeses lower the calorie count.
However, your recipe was great and I enjoyed it immensely. Thanks for the recipe I e-mailed it to a friend I know will love and appreciate it.
Great idea for a “grown up” grilled cheese sandwich. I love adding extra ingredients to spice up my grilled cheese sandwiches or any sandwich for that matter – and the pickled onions are on my list of must try recipes. I suppose the recipe would work just as well with sweet onions (my favorite), or both red and sweet – hmmm…., that’s an idea.
Thanks for the pickled onion idea. Just made some yeast rolls today and used some of the fat from the turkey roasting pan as a substitute for the oil in the recipe…oh my, that is good!
I’ve been making your pickled onions ever since you posted that recipe. They are good on so many difference things. Nice and crunchy, sweet and tangy. And they are so pretty.
I just love pickled onions on a sandwich. You get the flavor of the onion without that raw taste that lingers on your breath all afternoon!
I’ll have to try your version of the turkey melt. I usually make mine on a toasted hoagy roll with whipped cream cheese topped with toasted sliced almonds, cranberry compote, a layer of turkey w/salt and pepper, then a layer of sauerkraut-(that I make with caramelized onions, the kraut, good splash of turkey stock and caraway seed) and finally, lettus and a little mayo on the top bun. Oh, Mama!
Love those turkey sandwiches with melted cheese. Here is a link to my Thanksgiving Monte Cristo:
My mom makes an awesome post Thanksgiving sandwich. Turkey, mayo, lots of crispy bacon and a healthy slice of jellied cranberry sauce (yes, from the can!) on toast. Creamy, salty, sweet and toasty. Gotta love it.
We had thin slices of roasted butternut squash and whole roasted onions leftover too, so we put turkey, squash and onion slices in ours, along with some green pea shoots I’ve been growing and some quince paste. Lush toasted in some fresh bread from the baker!
We made grilled cheese with leftover turkey, brie, cranberry sauce, and a wee bit of lightly sauteed kale. Outstanding.
