“We like to fix these generous sandwiches whenever we have leftover turkey in the house,” Jean Graf-Joyce writes from Albany, Oregon. “They’re easy to make and a perfect choice for a light meal on the deck or patio.”
These hearty sandwiches are terrific for weekends and watching football. Kim Marie Van Rheenen of Mendota, Illinois simmers the meatballs in a tangy barbecue sauce rather than the traditional Italian red sauce.
We like to roast turkey throughout the year because we enjoy the leftovers. Several years ago, while nibbling on a fresh Waldorf salad and some cold turkey, I decided to combine the two. This pita was an instant hit.

"The first time I ever had this dish was at the historic Grand Hotel on Mackinac Island in Michigan," recalls Prue Thompson of Stuart, Florida. "That was back in the 1950s, and this sandwich has been one of my favorites ever since."
