The day after a holiday you are often left with lots of roasted turkey and that can make for some good turkey sandwiches. But instead of just putting the turkey on bread with traditional condiments, why not out a twist on the traditional day-after-a-holiday turkey sandwich this year?
Instead of the usual additions to a turkey sandwich I like to add a little apricot preserves and brie. I heat everything in the oven for 5-7 minutes so the cheese gets all warm and gooey. Quicker than you can change the batteries in your kid’s new toys, you have a tasty toasted turkey sandwich!
Hope you are enjoying the day after Christmas! Happy Holidays!
Next Day Turkey Sandwich
Prep time: 3 minutes - Cook time: 7 minutes – Makes: 1 sandwich
- good crusty bread
- cooked turkey (warm not cold) cut into pieces
- 1-2 tablespoons apricot preserves
- 1 oz slice of brie

I am almost half way though my month of brown-bag lunches and I am breakout my first sandwich of the month – turkey on a ciabatta roll. This isn’t just an ordinary turkey sandwich though. I topped my turkey with a slice of chipotle gouda (not sure when they added that to the deli section at my grocery store but it is really tasty!) and then added my own homemade Smoky Lime Cilantro Sauce. Oh yes I did!
To round out today’s menu I used leftover taco veggies (plus I few other interesting things I found lurking in the fridge) to create a lovely crisp side salad. Since my sandwich had a Tex-Mex flair going on I decided to keep it going with the salad. My Smoky Lime Cilantro Sauce (thinned with a little milk) made a perfect salad dressing.
The smoky flavor comes from smoked paprika. This spice was very trendy a year or two ago and got a lot of play on cooking channels and food blogs. It isn’t quite as trendy as it used to be, but it is still a great spice. I love it because it adds great flavor without adding heat.
Hope you give my Smoky Lime Cilantro Sauce a try. I can promise it will help you elevate your own brown-bag lunch from boring to Ba-Boom! But don’t think of this sauce only for lunches-on-the-go. It is delicious enough to warrant a place at your dinner table any night of the week. You just may want to double or triple the recipe depending on how many people are at the table.
Smoky Lime Cilantro Sauce
Prep time: 4 minutes – Makes: approx 1/3 cup
- 1/4 mayonnaise
- 1/4 non-fat plain Greek yogurt
- 1/2 teaspoon smoked paprika
- 1 tablespoon fresh cilantro
- juice from 1/2 fresh lime (roughly a generous tablespoon)
- a pinch of salt
- milk (if needed to thin the sauce to desired consistency)
Place mayo, yogurt, paprika, cilantro and lime juice in a mini food processor and pulse until well mixed. Season with salt and pepper. Thin sauce with a little milk if desired. Place sauce in the refrigerator until ready to serve.
