GLUTEN-FREE TURKEY SANDWICH W/CRANBERRY SAUCE & HUMMUS

True confession: I’m more interested in the sides during holiday meals than I am the turkey. Dressing (or stuffing as it’s called, depending on which side of the Mason-Dixon line you call home), potatoes, gravy, brussel sprouts, green bean casserole, cranberry salad, cornbread, parker house rolls, biscuits and pie. Kinda makes your mouth water just reading the list, yes?

And for me personally, I’m equally excited when it comes to next day leftovers. We aren’t in to wrestling with the crowds on Black Friday but I have to say, putzing around the house in comfy clothes, sharing conversations with out-of-town family and pulling a Dagwood-like turkey sandwich together is just one of the joys of the holidays we really look forward to.

I’m also going to confess that I’m not a mayo-on-the-sandwich kind of person – I prefer real butter or in this case, hummus. It’s a great swap and rosemary hummus happens to pair quite nicely with turkey – simply add a few thin slices of purple onion, a bit of lettuce and cranberry sauce and ‘winner, winner, we have dinner!’ Or lunch. Or a midnight snack . . . just sayin’ . . .

  3. Holy smokes, rosemary hummus! What a great idea! I am already dreaming of Friday’s Dagwood-style turkey sandwich thanks to you, Debra! (and the sides on Thursday. Oh, the sides! Can’t wait!) Happy Thanksgiving!

  4. Loving this recipe! I also prefer hummus or butter to mayo. 🙂

    • Katrina ~ the rosemary hummus is a really great pairing – it’s just that little ‘somethin’-somethin’! Happy Thanksgiving to you!
