Well it is a week out from one of the biggest cooking days of the year, Thanksgiving! All I can think about is leftovers!!!! I am all about the Gluten Free “Ultimate Turkey Sandwich” – roasted smoked turkey, walnuts, dried cranberries, celery and applewood or peppered bacon.
This year I am going to make it a little easier on myself because I don’t have to make the bread.There are so many choices for Gluten Free Breads now one of my favorites is Maninis Gluten Free.
One of my favorite grocery stores, Whole Foods Market
, is now selling Maninis breads across the US!!! Look at the Maninis website
for more locations or buy directly from them online. Maninis Gluten Free breads and GF flour mixes can also be found at Town and Country Markets and Central Market in the bread or bakery section.
For the Ultimate Turkey fixins
– Grab some leftover Turkey, I really like smoked turkey,
chop it up and put it it a bowl with about 1/2 cup of walnuts, cranberries and celery chunks. Add Mayo, I use Canola Oil mayo by Best Foods
. (I figure if I am really good with some things, then I
can have a bit more of the “not so good for you things” but gluten free of course.)
Mix together until creamy. The amount of mayo is up to you if you like more add it or less add it slowly. I like enough that everything is slightly coated and creamy but not overly.
Mix in chopped Niman Ranch
peppered or applewood bacon, 2-3 slices.
Toast the bread, I like the extra crunch, add some fresh baby greens on top of one slice and then a generous scoop of the Ultimate Turkey fixins and then top with the other piece of bread. This is also good to eat as an open faced sandwich with one slice of bread or as a salad with your favorite mixed greens.
Serve the sandwich on a big plate with your favorite potato chips, always a must for me and dive in!
Updated November 16, 2012 – I have a new improved version of my GF Ultimate Turkey Sandwich that is so great with leftovers from Thanksgiving! I think it is perfect to use my favorite homemade Gluten Free bread, GF Rustic Rolls or buy your favorite GF bread – Maninis Gluten Free to make life a little easier.
