Sandwich Day: 4 Sandwich Ideas for Leftover Thanksgiving Turkey
November 3rd is National Sandwich Day — it is a day to honor one of America’s favorite meals. Everyone loves a good sandwich, but since it’s also November, we thought we’d give you a few sandwich ideas for leftover Thanksgiving turkey.
Here are 4 fun turkey sandwiches to get you excited about Thanksgiving.
For leftover Thanksgiving turkey, your slow cooker will be your best friend. Our Gooseberry Patch Slow-Cooker cookbooks have a few ideas you can adapt to make your leftovers exciting.
