Probably one of the best things about Thanksgiving dinner is all of the leftover turkey! My husband thinks I’m a weirdo because I actually love leftover turkey more than fresh, hot turkey. He thinks I’m especially weird when I make my favorite ever leftover turkey sandwich the next day.
What is it you ask? Two pieces of bread, mayo, leftover turkey breast and salt! Yes.
