Put a new spin on leftover turkey with this hot sandwich recipe. The sweetness of cranberry sauce is great with the spicy smoky flavor of the chipotle turkey sandwich filling in these chewy ciabatta rolls.
15 min.prep time
25 min.total time
1 large (1 cup) onion, chopped
4 cups shredded cooked turkey or chicken
2 tablespoons chopped chipotle chiles in adobo sauce
2 teaspoons all-purpose flour
1 cup turkey or chicken broth
1 cup whole berry cranberry sauce
1/2 cup mayonnaise
16 small ciabatta rolls, warmed, split
16 small lettuce leaves
Melt butter in 2-quart saucepan over medium heat until sizzling; add onion. Continue cooking, stirring occasionally, until softened (3 to 5 minutes). Stir in turkey and chiles. Sprinkle flour over turkey mixture; mix well. Stir in broth; continue cooking until hot and bubbly.
Meanwhile, place cranberry sauce into small bowl; mash whole cranberries. Add mayonnaise; mix well. Set aside.
Place 1 lettuce leaf onto bottom half of each roll. Top each with 2 cheese quarters and about 1/4 cup turkey mixture. Spread 1 to 2 tablespoons cranberry mixture onto each cut-side of top half of rolls. Place over cheese.
The chipotle chiles add heat to this recipe. Increase or decrease the heat level by using more or less of the chipotle chiles in adobo sauce. Place any remaining chipotle chiles and adobo sauce in a freezer container and freeze for future use. Just slightly thaw, and chop up some of the chiles in your taco fillings or to spice up soups and stews.
