What to Do with the Leftover Turkey

There are plenty of recipe ideas  available in our Better Health Library and other websites for those looking to make a dish from leftover Thanksgiving turkey.
Here’s a recipe I recommend to patients for making a yummy sandwich. It is adapted from a recipe you will find for the ultimate leftover sandwich on mccormick.com.  
  • 2 tablespoons light mayonnaise
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon sage
  • 16 2’’ dinner rolls
  • 1 pound sliced roast turkey
  • 1 cup prepared stuffing
  • 1/2 cup whole berry cranberry sauce
Enjoy!  Happy Thanksgiving.
