Great way to use turkey leftovers! I changed it up a bit, used red onion, added chopped grapes, and use homemade cranberry sauce. Allowed to sit in the fridge for a few hours and WOW the taste is sectacular1 Served on dry toasted rye with romaine lettuce!
This is a great sandwich that could me made even better without the onions!
Great taste. I twicked it however, I added walnuts and dried cranberries and did not put the cream cheese on the bun. Saved some calories Excellent will make again.
