Gobble these up—before another family member does.
Thanksgiving dinner is fine and all, but it's only one meal. The fun really begins the next day, when you've got a fridge full of leftovers to play with! Call us crazy, but we think the best and most delicious part of the yearly Thanksgiving menu might just be the easy leftover turkey recipes. Here, we've rounded up the very best turkey sandwich recipes out there to help you transform your carefully cooked bird into an unbelievably delicious treat awaiting your return from Black Friday shopping. Even your grandma's famous pecan pie recipe might pale in comparison to these scrumptious lunches, most of which are helped along by a few other delicious leftover additions—homemade cranberry sauce, a bit of stuffing, and gravy, to name just a few.
Odds are, you've eaten a "Thanksgiving sandwich" before—the legendary combo of leftover turkey and Thanksgiving side dishes. But here, we're kicking the hot turkey sandwich game up a notch with creative ingredients, homemade condiments, and a bit of imagination (turkey salad, anyone?). You simply can't beat the sinfully good taste of a waffled cranberry cream cheese turkey sandwich or a buttery, bite-size turkey slider. And even the most adventurous eaters among you will have a hard time thinking up a more glorious post-Thanksgiving recipe than a waffle melt with turkey, smashed avocado, cranberries, brie, and mashed potatoes. Take a look at our all-time favorite turkey sandwich ideas—then head to your fridge, choose a few ingredients, and get started on your very own masterpiece. (If you've still got leftover turkey after all this, check out our other easy leftover turkey recipes.)
