This ain’t your mama’s turkey sandwich on wheat bread with lettuce. Oh no! This is an indulgent barbecue sandwich piled high with smoked pulled turkey smothered in Alabama white sauce with kale slaw.
How to build the perfect sandwich
All good sandwiches start with a good bun. You can see in the pictures, I used a large bakery bun, but this sandwich is also great on brioche buns, croissants and even in wraps. You’re welcome to toast the buns, if you’d like, but honestly, the slaw provides enough crunch, I don’t think the buns need it.
What makes this sandwich different from most turkey sandwiches is the turkey itself. It’s not made with sliced deli meat. I like to smoke whole turkeys year round and save the pulled meat in the freezer for quick and easy recipes like this.
