Leftover Turkey: Healthy Club Sandwich for the Whole Family

Leftover Turkey: Healthy Club Sandwich for the Whole Family

What’s the best part of Thanksgiving turkey? The leftovers. Hands down. For us, leftover turkey means days of delicious turkey sandwiches covered in cranberry sauce. Our favorite version? This healthy club sandwich I made today. I took the classic club sandwich and ‘healthified’ or ‘hipsterfied’ it by using turkey bacon, veganaise and sprouted whole wheat bread.

It was to die for. Seriously. You can’t even tell that it’s healthier.

Leftover Turkey: Healthy Club Sandwich with veganaise, sprouted spread, turkey bacon and cranberry sauce.

All you need is: some toasted healthy whole wheat bread, leftover turkey, turkey bacon, veganaise (vegan mayonnaise), leftover cranberry sauce,  lettuce and tomato. My 6 yr. daughter doesn’t particularly like tomatoes in her sandwiches so I put her tomatoes on the side.

I stuck some pretty gem sandwich skewers to hold them together. Because let’s face it, pretty gem sandwich skewers make all the difference to a 6 year old.

And you can’t eat a club sandwich without cutting it into 4 triangles. You’d be savage not to.

So just layer all the ingredients together and cut diagonally twice! Stick the picks to hold them together. I hope you all are having delicious healthy club sandwiches today! In fact, they should call the day after Thanksgiving, National Club Sandwich Day!

I sprayed the shaving cream into a small bowl first, then added the same amount of glue and added a few drops of food coloring. Then simply mix, and you’re done.
