After Thanksgiving, we cannot get enough leftover turkey recipes—and this healthy turkey avocado sandwich will help you use up Thanksgiving leftovers and more. If you really want to do this sandwich up, chef Hugh Acheson suggests searing a slice of stuffing or bread pudding until it's nice and crispy and putting it between the turkey and avocado.

Serving size 1/2 sandwich? Who eats 1/2 a sandwich? And 464 mg of sodium is high for half a sandwich. You can do a lot better with Dave's Killer bread, or make it yourself.
