10 Sandwiches for Leftover Turkey

Thanksgiving leftovers are just meant for sandwiches.  Now there is nothing wrong with keeping it simple - turkey, lettuce, tomato, maybe a little mayo.  But I like to mix things up, so I thought I'd share some fun sandwiches I've rounded up from around the web.  Which one of these sandwiches calls out to you?

This Pulled Turkey Sandwich with Cranberry BBQ Sauce is from the archives of my own blog.  I love this not only because of my obsession with bbq, but it also helps you use up leftover cranberry sauce!

Any good Friends fan knows all about the turkey sandwich with the moist maker.  I have a particular affinity for all the Friends Thanksgiving episodes (more coming this week on this topic!); so this sandwich from Spoon Fork Bacon is pretty much perfect.  I will definitely be making this sandwich after Thanksgiving!

Oh, my.  Baked Turkey Sliders with Cranberry-Bacon Chutney and Browned Sage Butter.  Is anyone else drooling right now?  My friend Shawnda killed it with these little beauties.  I can totally see us making a big tray of these to snack on while we watch our beloved Yellow Jackets get stomped by UGA on Saturday.  We like to dull our pain with food.

And my friend Annie also killed it with this Thanksgiving Leftovers Panini.  It has turkey, cranberry sauce, and brie, and it's made with pumpkin bread!  Amazing.

I love the idea of waffle sandwiches for breakfast the day after Thanksgiving, and how gorgeous are these Pumpkin Waffle Breakfast Sandwiches from Running to the Kitchen?  There's cranberry sauce, turkey, and a fried egg, all on a pumpkin waffle.  Love.

Chicken Salad on a Croissant is one of my favorite sandwiches, and I almost always use leftover turkey to make a batch of this Apple-Almond Chicken Salad Sandwiches.  It's a great quick lunch, or a few scoops of this with crackers makes a nice snack as well.

While it's not really a true sandwich, I couldn't write the post without including these Turkey Tostadas with Cranberry-Chipotle Sauce from Apple a Day.  You guys know that I eat Mexican food any chance I get, and I love this idea!

This Open Faced Hot Turkey Sandwich from Simply Recipes is so simple, but it looks so comforting and delicious.  Sometimes simple really is best.

I love Cuban sandwiches, so this spin with roasted turkey and a cranberry-dijon mayo makes me so happy.

And finally, for a sandwich with a totally different flavor profile, Jamie Oliver's Turkey Banh Mi.  How gorgeous is that sandwich?  I really want to just face-plant right into it.  mmm, cilantro.

These sandwiches all look so amazing, and I might have to roast a turkey just to use for sandwiches.  I really and truly can't decide which one to make first!

Love the pulled turkey with cranberry bbq sauce- it's on the weekend-after menu every year because they're just so darned good with our leftover smoked turkey!
