My Favorite Turkey Sandwiches

HAPPY THANKSGIVING!

TURKEY SANDWICHES I HAVE KNOWN AND LOVED could easily be the title of this post and the story of my life for the few days after Thanksgiving. In fact, I may have to go out and buy a turkey breast, just to have enough turkey to make all my favorite turkey sandwiches.

The Pier 39 sandwich is one we had in San Francisco, way back when, and marked the first time I'd encountered cranberry sauce on a sandwich. I was an instant fan! We had the sandwiches with Anchor Steam beer. It was a great day!

The Dam Turkey Sandwich is one we used to eat in Tamworth NH, at a little gift shop and restaurant that sat beside a river where you could sit outside and watch water spilling over the dam. Such a lovely setting! The sandwich became a favorite and we never missed going there during our annual summer visits up north. This sandwich also marks a first - the first time I had dressing as a sandwich ingredient - but definitely not the last! Pita bread makes the perfect "container" for all the delicious ingredients.

I don't think I've ever met a turkey sandwich I didn't like. Cranberry sauce + havarti cheese = DELISH.

Maris, what is it about turkey and havarti? A marriage made in heaven!

Maris said...

I know! Delish. I discovered havarti when I worked at a sandwich shop in high school and it's great with turkey or on a veggie sandwich also.

I'm totally in awe of all of your Thanksgiving leftover recipes - in my family we just eat the same meal for 3 days, but we love every one!
