Here’s the thing, I’m a huge lover of the leftover turkey sandwich but in order to get to the sandwich part I have to go through the fuss of a big turkey meal. This makes the leftover turkey sandwich a bi-annual event around this house. That was until yesterday.
For the next four months I’ll be working with Butterball Canada and perhaps the coolest thing I’ve discovered so far is this. Are you ready for it? You can have leftover turkey sandwiches without the big turkey meal. Mind.Blown.
I only really knew Butterball for it’s turkeys which have been a standard in my house and in my mother’s house for longer than I care to admit. *cough* Forty-four years.*cough* So, without giving away my age completely, let’s just say it’s been a long time. So, I was a little surprised to find out that Butterball has a Boneless Stuffed Turkey Breast.
Yesterday, I followed the directions on the box and put the turkey in the oven and went about my day. In the last hour before it was done, I threw some sweet potatoes in the oven and made my favourite cranberry sauce. A lovely, practically hands-free meal for a Saturday night. But that’s not the really cool part. That happened today.
Yes, without an entire day spent in the kitchen, a house full of people or a mountain of dishes to tackle, I got my leftover turkey sandwich. I can’t even repeat what my husband said to me today after we had these sandwiches for lunch but let’s just say I’m feeling lucky.
Here’s how I made mine:
Leftover Turkey Sandwich
1 Butterball Boneless Stuffed Turkey breast (half of it, sliced)
4 leaves Boston lettuce
Handful of alfafa sprouts
4 tbsps Orange Maple Cranberry Sauce
4 tbsps mayonnaise
8 slices multigrain bread
Layer one piece of bread with lettuce, then sprouts, followed by a slice of the Butterball Boneless Stuffed Turkey breast. Top with cranberry sauce. Spread mayonnaise on other slice of bread and place on top of cranberry. Repeat for four sandwiches. Voila. Easy peasy.
Phew! You worked hard on that one. You should go have a nap now and let someone else clean up the kitchen.
