The Perfect Turkey Sandwich


  • 4 pieces of whole white bread
  • 2-3 tablespoons of real mayonnaise
  • 1/2 cup of fresh cold turkey sliced or shredded
  • sweet hot or just sweet pickles


  1. Spread mayo on one side of both pieces of bread used for the sandwich
  2. lay cold turkey down like slices. Sometimes with dry meat it is better to use shredded
  3. layer sweet pickle on top
  4. put top piece of bread on sandwich before slicing in 1/2
  5. serve with potato chips

It is super important to use fresh ingredients.  The roasted turkey usually last a good week in the refrigerator in an airtight container.  I share how to get a perfectly roasted turkey on my website.

Turkey Sandwich Ingredients

Today I use a whole white flour bread that is loaded with seeds. Here are some photos of my turkey sandwich recipe.  This is the real deal so be sure to comment on my post or reach out to me on social media @brenhaas to tell me what you think.  I love the fresh seed whole flours we have available these days for meals at the grocery store.  Do you use any unique bread for your sandwich?

The sweet-hot peppers are sometimes from my garden but when I didn’t have time the ones from the grocery store will do just fine. Doesn’t that turkey sandwich below look amazing?!

Andy didn’t want pickles on his turkey sandwich … he has no idea what he is missing. Put a dipping sauce dish of the sweet hot pickles on the plate.
