This Turkey French Dip Sandwich is perfect to use up that leftover Thanksgiving turkey or roast a breast for a comforting hot sandwich. Definitely a keeper.
This Turkey French Dip Sandwich is delicious and easy. Perfect for leftover Thanksgiving turkey or roast a turkey breast when your craving that perfect hot sandwich any time of year. These babies have tender turkey on a crusty roll with melted provolone cheese and a side of delicious gravy to dip each bit into.
Every Thanksgiving I roast the biggest turkey I can find, I usually shoot for about 24 pounds. Mostly because I want to feast on those delicious sandwiches for the next couple days.
I like to use Herb De Provence in my poultry but if you don’t have that rosemary and thyme will do just fine.
I love sandwiches, I could eat one everyday and never get sick of them. Another one of out families favorites is my Slow Cooker French Dip Sandwiches.
