The best reason for Thanksgiving turkey is this sandwich for the day after!


  • Sandwich bread (I honestly use whatever bread we have on hand; the bread in the photo is Orowheat Oatnut bread, my favorite everyday bread).
  • Mayonnaise
  • Sliced turkey meat (Remove the breast from the turkey and then slice perpendicular to the bottom where the bone was, results in great, tender slices of meat)
  • Cranberry Sauce - I use whatever version I've made for the holiday but if you buy canned sauce I think this sandwich is best if you get the whole berry variety.
  • Cream Cheese - either spread with soft cream cheese or cut 'slices' if using regular cream cheese; you want a fairly thick layer of cream cheese, don't scrimp here.
  • Alfalfa or Clover Sprouts
  • Roasted Sunflower Seeds


  1. Smear some mayonnaise on bottom bread slice and season with a small amount of salt
  2. Layer turkey on top of mayonnaise
  3. Cream cheese goes on next on top of the turkey.
  4. Dollop generous spoonful of cranberry sauce on top of turkey and spread to edges.
  5. Put a small handful of alfalfa or clover sprouts on top of sauce.
  6. Sprinkle with toasted sunflower seeds; spread mayonnaise on 2nd slice of bread and top off sandwich.
  7. Cut in half and serve with chips and/or pickle spears.
