Leftover Turkey Avocado Sandwich
I start off by toasting some bread. Toasting the bread is totally optional, but I highly recommend it. Why eat regular bread when you can toast it? Also, I used brat buns, but just any bread will work. My Easy One-Hour Homemade Bread Recipe would be a great alternative. Another great way to enjoy this would be to place all of the ingredients in a tortilla wrap or some form of flat bread and wrap then enjoy. After toasting, I rub some mayo on one side of the bun and place some cheese on the other side.
Then I add the turkey, some lettuce, and avocado. You could equally top with cucumbers and tomatoes. So good!
I also add some sliced onion for a little kick. That’s pretty much it. In under ten minutes, you have an insanely delicious, wholesome Leftover Turkey Avocado Sandwich!
This Leftover Turkey Avocado Sandwich is full of flavor from the turkey, creaminess from the avocado, and freshness from the lettuce. It is meaty, so tasty, and filling. You can’t beat that flavor! My kids and I had our turkey avocado sandwiches for lunch – our plates were cleared and our hearts were merry. Hope you enjoy this recipe as much as we do!
- 1/2 cup chopped/shredded roasted turkey
- 1 avocado - sliced
- 2 brat buns or 4 slices sandwich bread
- 2 tsp mayo
- 2 slices cheese of choice ( I used American cheese)
- 1 ounce sliced onion
- 2 large green leaf lettuce leaves
- Cut buns open. Toast lightly if so desired.
- Spread a teaspoon of mayo on one side of each set of bread. Cut cheese into 2 and place on the other side of the buns.
- Add the turkey to one side of the buns. Then add the lettuce leaves and avocado slices to the other side. Add sliced onions to the top of each.
- Cover bread then cut into two and enjoy!
Home Chef Tip: Use sandwich bread instead of brat buns if you so desire. If you choose to use sandwich bread, one slice of bread will work as one side of a brat bun. Add more vegetables to your sandwich for more freshness and nutrition. Tomato and cucumber slices will work perfectly!
