Here are 5 ways to add that pizzazz on Turkey Sandwich Day, keeping the financially strong choice on the menu while getting more students to line up.

Make it sweet!

Mini French Toast Sliders

Of all the great things to come out of France, their toast is at the top of our list. Make these breakfast-meets-lunch sliders with JENNIE-O® Turkey Ham and JENNIE-O® Oven Roasted Turkey, cheese and jelly sandwiched between pieces of cinnamon french toast. Delicious? Oui, oui.

Swiss, spice, apple slice!

Ham, Apple and Swiss Panini

Now this is the type of unexpected sandwich that kids expect to see. JENNIE-O® Turkey Ham, apple slices, swiss cheese, jalapeños and mustard on whole grain bread.

Wrap it up!

Hawaiian Turkey Ham Wrap

Tortillas are the coolest thing since before sliced bread (thank you, ancient Mesoamericans). So try this: fill a whole grain tortilla with JENNIE-O® Turkey Ham, mixed veggies, coleslaw and pineapple tidbits. And that’s a wrap!

BLT + T!


Throw on some T to your BLT for another lunchtime favorite. Layer JENNIE-O® Oven Roasted Turkey, JENNIE-O® Turkey Bacon, tomato, lettuce, and ranch or mayo on whole grain bread. Tasty with a capital T.

BAM! Bagel time.

Toasted Italian Bagel Sandwich

Just when you thought you couldn’t do anything else to jazz up turkey sandwiches…BAM! This toasted bagel is stuffed with JENNIE-O® Turkey Ham and JENNIE-O® Oven Roasted Turkey, pepperoni, cheese and Italian dressing.
