The ziplock bag of turkey scraps is almost empty, just enough leftovers for one hefty turkey sandwich. I have a secret weapon that, to my palate, makes an exceptional turkey sandwich.

The particular arsenal I prefer using is Honeycup Mustard, the "uniquely sharp" Canadian condiment. I've tried many honey mustards on leftover roast turkey sandwiches — my favorite remains the original Honeycup.

That's not to say other honey mustards out there aren't delicious with their own particular usages. Mucky Duck, for instance, makes a wonderful honey mustard. I prefer that honey mustard brand when the food requires a dipping mustard: pretzel sticks and eggrolls come to mind.

Yield: 1 sandwich


1 artisan roll, halved lengthwise, or 2 slices your favorite bread
1 tablespoon Honeycup Mustard
1 tablespoon mayonnaise (Hellman's or homemade preferred)
Lettuce or basil leaves
2-3 tablespoons cranberry relish or tomato slices
Leftover turkey


Combine Honeycup and mayonnaise and spread on bread halves. Layer one side with lettuce or basil leaves, relish or tomato and turkey. Top with lots of freshly ground pepper and remaining bread slice. Serve.
