Leftover Turkey Sandwiches on Sweet Potato Rolls

The other day I shared some tips for Recipes for Leftover Turkey: Reducing Thanksgiving Waste (plus a few safety tips for freezing leftover turkey meat), but I couldn’t head out to my family Thanksgiving celebrations without sharing one more leftover turkey recipe with you

What is Thanksgiving without turkey sandwiches made from the leftover meat?

I love this recipe for turkey sandwiches with Sweet Potato Dinner Rolls as the bread.

Top them with a little Cranberry Orange Walnut Relish and you’ve got one amazingly delicious and quick sandwich made from your leftovers.

We’ve made these rolls three times just so we can make the sandwiches again.
