Use That Leftover Turkey for a BBQ Turkey Sandwich

 

Leftover turkey and rolls or biscuits make a delicious southern BBQ turkey sandwich. We are breaking out of our standard turkey sandwich rut and doing something new at our house.   These are so good I want to roast another turkey!

My favorite Thanksgiving Leftover is the Southern BBQ Turkey Sandwich.  Ask most any turkey lover what they look forward to most about Thanksgiving leftovers and be prepared to hear about their favorite sandwich. If you are a Friend’s fan thoughts of the “moistmaker” are probably going through your head right now.

I love cooking for Thanksgiving dinner and consider it one of the best parts of my entire year. I pour myself into the task and while the results are always wonderful they also leave me a little tired. We spend the weekend after Thanksgiving engaging in a lot of down time and not very much cooking!

Jonathan has a four day weekend and we like to take that special time to rest, catch up, and start putting up our Christmas tree. Sometimes Jonathan makes a few meals, but generally we enjoy simpler food. This year we have been putting our Turkey to good use and munching up piles and piles of these delicious little BBQ sliders.

I usually plan in advance and make sure we are well stocked on good BBQ sauce and sweet pickles. This year I was pretty sure there would not be many leftover rolls so I stashed some Hawaiian Sweet Rolls away to make sure there would be plenty of sandwich fixings.

Really any sauce and pickles will do the trick but we like Sweet Baby Rays sauce and Famous Dave’s Pickles. Frankly we don’t patronize Famous Dave’s BBQ restaurant but we bought two cases of the pickles this year from Costco. The pickles are so good I took them to a potluck last fall and somebody asked me for the recipe! I had to fess up that they were not, in fact, homemade.

After years and years of wonderful Turkey Sandwiches, I hope you enjoy trying something new and “Southernizing” your leftovers!
