Turkey Salad Sandwiches

I recently discovered turkey salad when a friend brought me some as a gift. Isn’t food always a great gift? It might be exaggerating to say it was life-changing, but I’ll say it anyway. It was life changing. If you find turkey bland and boring but still find it necessary to serve for the holidays, turkey salad is the answer to your leftover woes. We’re going to add white and dark meat to a food processor and pulse until it becomes finely shredded. Then we’ll stir in boiled eggs, mayonnaise, dill pickle relish, garlic powder, and salt. Spread it on whatever leftover bread or rolls you have or serve it as a dip with crackers. Top it with jalapeƱo cranberry relish if you want to punch up the flavor. And I won’t judge if you go hide in your room to eat it so you don’t have to share it with anyone else. It’ll be our little secret.

Turkey Salad Ingredients


Butter Crackers (Ritz, Club, or Townhouse)

Butter Lettuce or Living Lettuce, optional



Dill Pickle Relish

Liquid Smoke


Garlic Powder

Turkey Salad Recipe

4 Cups of Turkey

1 cup of Mayonnaise 

9 Tablespoons of Dill Pickle Relish

2 Hard Boiled Eggs

1/2 Teaspoon of Salt

1 Teaspoon of Garlic Powder

Liquid Smoke to taste (* see recipe notes, optional)

  1. Shred 4 cups of turkey. A food processor works great for this. I recommend blending to a pate consistency, but blend/chop to your desired consistency.
  2. Chop 2 hard boiled eggs.
  3. Combine 1 cup of mayo, 9 tablespoons of dill pickle relish, 1/2 teaspoon of salt, 1 teaspoon of garlic powder, and liquid smoke to taste* (optional, see note).
  4. Add the relish mixture to the turkey and eggs and stir until the turkey is evenly coated.
  5. You can serve immediately, or refrigerate until ready to serve.
  6. Spread on bread with lettuce, or serve as a dip with butter crackers.

*Note: If your turkey was smoked, you don’t need to add liquid smoke. If your turkey was roasted or fried, you may want to add the liquid smoke to amp up the flavor. How your turkey is cooked will affect how your turkey salad tastes. Each method of brining, seasoning, and cooking will give a unique flavor! I like using both dark and white meat to get the most flavor.

Biscuit Board

Maybe you have guests staying over for the holidays, and you need to have breakfast planned. Grab the leftover ham and turkey and make an eye-catching biscuit board. There’s almost nothing better than homemade biscuits, but we’re using frozen biscuits. Who wants to do more complicated cooking the day after a big feast? No one. Bring out sweet and savory toppings like butter, honey, cream cheese, cheese slices, whatever sounds like the perfect breakfast sandwich to you. You can add fruit and nuts to add visual interest and to snack on as you assemble your biscuit sandwiches. This is the time to pull out that charcuterie board and let everyone gather around and graze. If you don’t have a board, use plates or even a cookie sheet. But don’t stress about presentation. It’s all about how the food tastes anyway.
