This time of year, we get recipes every day for turkey leftovers. For us, nothing beats a turkey sandwich…or two…or six.
To keep from getting bored after your second turkey sandwich, plan ahead.
Plan for different breads. Alternate baguette, brioche, crusty peasant bread, hero rolls, pita a sweet bread like King’s Hawaiian or a tortilla wrap.
Switch the condiments. Aïoli (garlic mayonnaise, or try the orange aïoli recipe below), Baconaise, cheese sauce (you can use a jar of queso dip), cranberry mayonnaise (mix mayo with cranberry sauce), Dijon mustard, gravy, horseradish mayonnaise (blend), Russian dressing, wasabi mayonnaise.

Look for the excellent flavored mayonnaises from The Ojai Cook, including Cha Cha Chipotle, Garlic Herb Lemonaise, Green Dragon Lemonaise, Latin Lemonaise and Fire & Spice. These jars of mayo delight also make great stocking stuffers.
Vary the garnishes. Try arugula or watercress, bread and butter pickles or hot and sweet pickle slices, olives, pickled onions (quick pickling recipe), pimento, sliced tomatoes, sliced radishes or stuffing.
