It's tough to create a sandwich that's not great with Turkey Day leftovers, but there are a few tricks that will make it utterly irresistible. Use our tips to build a sandwich so tasty you'll crave it the other 364 days of the year.

3. Go condiment crazy. Gild the lily with zingy cranberry sauce and a bit of mayo. Although mayonnaise may not have been a part of the original feast, we've still never met a sandwich that wasn't improved by a bit of the creamy condiment.
