Go Ahead Honey, It’s Gluten Free – Grain Free Cakes »

Leftover Turkey Sandwich

Here’s a yummy way to eat your leftover turkey.  Take a couple slices of gluten free Nutty Bread, lettuce, mustard and voilà, you have a delicious post-Thanksgiving meal in a sandwich.  Personally, I would throw some leftover Cranberry Sauce on the side to add a little hit of color and flavor.

By the way, the turkey in the photo above is not turkey from Thanksgiving, it is a leftover photo using organic Applegate Farms turkey.

Leftover Turkey Sandwich


  1. Toast bread, then smear with mustard
  2. Place lettuce on bread, then turkey slices
  3. Close sandwich and eat

If you’re tiring of turkey sandwiches another great leftover idea is my Turkey Chili which was recommended in a great little write up over at Slashfood.

In other news, I got some Thanksgiving buzz from The Denver Post. They published an article entitled “50 last-minute ideas guaranteed to shake up Thanksgiving“. It features my gluten free Pear Crisp from The Gluten-Free Almond Flour Cookbook, along with the recipe itself. So head on over to the Denver Post online for my Pear Crisp recipe for free!

In Friday Freebie news, Kimberley has won last weeks freebie, a Digestive Enzyme from Kroeger Herb. Hope this will help with any potential holiday overload and just day-to-day digestive maintenance.

    I made the pumpkin pie from your cookbook and the whole family loved it. It was as good or better than any other pie made with dairy! Thanks Elana:)

    On my faaaaavorite bread!
    Also – pumpkin cheesecake was a big hit with the crowd.

    I made the chicken pot pie from your new cookbook last night, and we were astonished by its creamy, crusted deliciousness. We’ve already eaten the leftovers, and I was tempted to make it again for dinner. I’ll show some restraint, though, and wait a couple days.

    Your cookbook has renewed my enthusiasm for cooking, an enthusiasm that had been dampened by a long list of food intolerances.

    I purchased four of the books, only to find that two of the people I was getting them for had purchased their own copies as well as copies for me. So we have a lot of them floating around, but they’ll find homes easily.

    The book is beautiful–such nice paper, colours and photos.

    Thanks for your great work. Your recipes always lead to delicious ends!

    Hello Elana! I know you are super busy….but if you know of any MS research foundations that are doing research on MS using alternative medicines can you email me their name/info? (Or anyone else who might know of one.) My aunt passed away from MS a year ago and left me some money and I’d like to donate it to a good cause. (Goodness….that sounds like a bad email chain letter! Promise it’s true! I’m just having problems finding such a foundation through internet searches.) Thanks so much! –Annette Email: ahibbie (at) gmail (dot) com

  5. Hi Annette,

    What a great question. I don’t know of any organizations doing alternative MS research. Let’s stay in touch though and please let me know if you find one –I’ll let you know if I do too.
