Lunch with Leftovers ~ Sesame Turkey Tea Sandwiches


Every year I enjoy making a batch of these dainty little tea sandwiches with leftover turkey for a light, casual lunch in the days that follow the big feast!
 
 

Sesame Almond Turkey Tea Sandwiches 
Makes approx. 40 tea sandwiches
Approx. time:  15 minutes 


3 cups turkey finely chopped
1/3 cup sliced almonds, lightly toasted
3/4 cup mayonnaise
1/3 cup celery (the topmost, thin pieces and leaves) minced
2 tsp sesame oil
Salt & Pepper 
20 slices soft sandwich bread (I prefer wheat)
More mayonnaise for sesame garnish
Toasted sesame seeds (black, white or a combination of both)

Makes approx. 40 tea sandwiches

To a medium bowl, add turkey, mayonnaise, celery, and sesame oil.  Crush almonds in your palm and add to bowl.  Stir to combine.  Add salt and pepper to taste.
Place a small scoop of turkey salad on a slice of soft sandwich bread.  Top with another slice of bread, lightly press, then remove crusts.  Cut into quarters diagonally.  Using a butter knife, spread a thin layer of light mayonnaise along one side of each little sandwich.  Then dip that side into a bowl of toasted sesame seeds. 
Serve.

  1. Awesome! It's so easy to get tired of the standard turkey leftover recipes. This is simple but WAY different. I love tea sandwiches!
