Who doesn't love a leftover turkey sandwich after Thanksgiving? I know I do! I could pretty much live on sandwiches though, and would never complain.
I'm a huge fan of sandwiches for lunch or dinner, and this turkey bacon sandwich is super hearty. I love using rustic white bread, but you can use whatever bread you prefer.
Don't have any leftover turkey? No worries try my easy Brined Garlic Herb Turkey Breast. I make it several times a year.
How to make a leftover turkey bacon sandwich
- Start with the bacon. You can certainly fry the bacon it in a skillet. But I find it less messy and hassle-free if you bake it in the oven.
- Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Place some parchment paper on a baking sheet and lay out strips of bacon. Bake for 15 minutes or until desired crispiness.
- Remove to a paper towel to cool.
Oh boy, this sauce is amazing! We enjoy it on burgers and hotdogs too, it's a summer stable in my house. I add a little extra cayenne pepper. We like a little more kick than the recipe calls for, so feel free to add more if you want.
