You know that episode of Friends where Ross get SO mad when someone eats his leftover Thanksgiving sandwich with the "moist maker"? (sorry if you hate the M word!) Well, I feel just as strongly about this turkey avocado sandwich with sweet potato spread.
Turkey Avocado Sandwich
If there is one thing I love most about Thanksgiving it's the GIANT container of fresh, roast turkey that we have in the house for days on end after the Turkey day meal. I feel like it's such a fancy upgrade from deli meat turkey, but you could totally use that for this sandwich, too. It's not limited to being a thanksgiving leftover sandwich!
And the avocado part? Well, to be honest it:
- tastes FAB
- makes me feel super hip and millennial
- add some great healthy fats to keep you full and satisfied
I know picking an avocado can be tough. I mean, it's gotta be juuuuust ripe enough! So here is a really great article on how to pick and buy and avocado!
Take a second to Pin this recipe to your Pinterest board. This is going to become a year-round staple!
Sweet Potato Spread
For the sweet potato spread on this turkey avocado sandwich you can use whatever sweet potatoes you have from turkey day and make this a true Thanksgiving leftover sandwich (yes, even the sweet potato casserole with the marshmallows will do!) or you can make your own mashed sweet potatoes in the microwave in 5 minutes by doing this:
- wash & peel potato
- dice potato
- place in a microwave safe bowl
- fill with water to cover potato
- microwave for 5 minutes
- mash with a fork!
Boom. So easy. Use that trick for weeknight dinners, too. You're welcome!
For the bread I highly recommend getting a loaf and cutting fresh slices. Mostly, again, because it makes me feel fancy but also it totally tasted better. But, feel free to use sliced break if that's all you've got!
