Can’t get enough turkey between Thanksgiving and Christmas? Does the nostalgic craving ever really subside?
For those that look forward to leftovers as much as (if not more than) the big dinner, I bring you the best handheld feasts available on menus year-round in Toronto.
The Honest Lawyer at Caplansky’s
The open faced sandwich channels Thanksgiving supper at a Jewish deli in the ultimate mash-up of cultural comfort foods. Smoked turkey, kishke, gravy and cranberry sauce on challah amount to sloppy sandwich that’s best eaten with a fork and knife. Get it exclusively at the College Street eatery.
Address: 356 College Street, Toronto
The Boxing Day Sandwich at Brick Street Bakery
The Toronto chain of bakeries doesn’t mess around with tradition. The gourmet take on repurposed leftovers is crafted with roasted turkey, scratch-made stuffing, cranberries, and mayo.
Address: 27 Trinity Street, Toronto
Address: 1969 Queen Street East, Toronto
Address: 255 Logan Avenue, Toronto
Address: 100 King Street West, Toronto
Thanksgiving Day at Wahlburgers
Every day is a holiday at this celeb-owned burger joint. The festive burger is a menu staple featuring a freshly ground turkey patty topped with stuffing, orange-cranberry sauce, roasted butternut squash and mayonnaise.
Address: 46 Blue Jays Way, Toronto
The Roasted Turkey and Apple Sandwich at Tuckshop Kitchen
The Junction Triangle lunch counter slathers multigrain bread with partridge berry mayo and tops it with turkey breast, crisp granny smith apples, lettuce and red onion. Brie is optional for $1 more but the rich creamy component is worth it.
Address: 1640 Dupont Street, Toronto
