Turkey Banh Mi Sandwich & Thanksgiving Leftovers

Turkey Banh Mi

What could be better than Thanksgiving leftovers, right?

The Sunday Supper Team, including 30A EATS has stepped up to the challenge, and we’ve come up with amazing Thanksgiving Leftover Recipes for this week’s Sunday Supper Event! Check out all of the links below!

I decided after a big heavy Thanksgiving feast that nothing beats the refreshing and bold flavors of a Turkey Bahn Mi the following day! It is a take on the Vietnamese Banh Mi where I spice thing up by combining Sriracha mayonnaise with roast turkey, and then layer crisp vegetables and fresh cilantro. Just fill the sandwich as you like and eat!


Chilled cooked roast turkey chopped or shredded  for 4 sandwiches (about 1 pound)

2/3 cups Mayonnaise like Duke’s, Hellman’s or Blue Plate

1 tablespoon Asian chile sauce like Sriracha

2 green onion finely chopped

1/2 thinly sliced peeled cucumber

1 cups coarsely grated carrot

1/4 cup unseasoned rice vinegar

A handfull of fresh cilantro sprigs

4 Fresh Baked Whole-wheat baguettes

Jalapeno chiles, sliced thin

Salt and Ground pepper


Combine the carrot and cucumber with rice vinegar and let sit for 15 minutes, tossing occasionally. Chop or shred chilled cooked turkey and mix with chopped green onion and mayonnaise spiked with Asian chile sauce like Sriracha. Layer turkey with thinly sliced peeled cucumber, grated carrot, and a generous handful of fresh cilantro inside the  whole-wheat baguette. Add more heat with thinly sliced jalapeno chiles if desired. Add salt and pepper to taste.

  2. Needed to post you one little observation just to say thank you once again considering the stunning solutions you have featured here. It has been strangely open-handed with you to make freely precisely what a few individuals would have made available as an e-book to generate some profit on their own, most importantly given that you might have done it if you desired. The principles additionally worked like a good way to be aware that some people have a similar zeal really like my very own to understand a lot more on the subject of this problem. I know there are some more enjoyable sessions ahead for those who browse through your site.
