Pilgrim Sandwiches are my favorite thing ever to make with Thanksgiving leftovers! It has some of the best parts of Thanksgiving dinner: turkey, rolls, and cranberry sauce!
With Thanksgiving being this week theres bound to be lots of yummy food leftover. Or maybe you should set some turkey aside just to be safe! Because you are going to love the delicious combination of savory and sweet in these Pilgrim Sandwiches. Be sure to have some lettuce, cream cheese, and sliced provolone or swiss handy and you will be all set.
This is really similar to a sandwich I used to get at my favorite sandwich place in California. I don’t even know how many of these Pilgrim Sandwiches I ordered when we lived there! But it was a significant amount. Now I usually patiently wait for Thanksgiving to come around so I can make myself one. Or cook up a little turkey breast on a random Sunday throughout the year so I don’t have to wait so long.
