Many people this year will be eating turkey sandwiches on Christmas night. Sadly I can no longer eat bread, as I’m gluten intolerant and I’m not really a fan of the gluten free breads. Therefore I’m always looking for alternatives to bread. In recent months, I have found my sweet potato pancakes a great alternative.
So I decided to make a sweet potato pancake sandwich with leftover turkey from lunch and my homemade pickle. From what I can remember of bread, I actually preferred this to a normal sandwich. The pancakes were sweet and soft. They also complimented the turkey and pickle very well. It’s a tasty sandwich alternative at Christmas.

Turkey, Pickle and Sweet Potato Pancakes Sandwich made a great evening tea for me. I thoroughly enjoyed every last bite of this sandwich. My sweet potato pancakes are a delicious alternative to bread. Plus all the ingredients in these pancakes are freezable. So the pancakes can be made and frozen. Plus, the mixture can be made in advance and frozen too. However you decide to eat these sandwiches, as always, enjoy.
Thank you. xxx
