The Answer to the Most Controversial Thanksgiving Question of All Time…

Let's settle this debate once and for all.

Last week, we asked you to head to the Wondercade Instagram (which, if you don’t follow already, please do!) to weigh in on the most crucial conundrum Turkey Day has to offer: How do you prefer your leftover turkey sandwiches the next day — hot or cold? Hundreds of you responded. Here are some choice results!

Both! Late night leftover sandwich: cold. Next day lunch: hot. Also notable leftover meals: Turkey lemon and rice soup made with the carcass. And turkey hash with potatoes and eggs for brunch. 🤤 — @maniacpumpkins (Also, side note… hi, Maniac Pumpkin Carvers! These geniuses of jack-o’-lanterns actually appeared in an issue of Wondercade last year — click here for their tips on carving an A++++ pumpkin.)

Hot with gravy, AND cold with green apple, cream cheese and cranberry sauce. — @misciannagwn

Leftovers? What leftovers? My bird is so good there usually aren’t any and if there are someone puts dibs on them. Oh and the carcass and any ‘bits’ go right into boiling water/white wine with some celery and onions and time for a bone base stock. As for the gravy, if there is any left, I thin it with the bone stock a bit and freeze it in an ice cube tray and use them to enrich various poultry sauces and recipes. — @bqpier5

I do not discriminate against the temperature of my tasty snacks. The need to nosh, appliance availability, and time constraints determine the temperature of my leftover consumption. — @illuminatiaaron

Sandwich is cold. But also make a hot “bowl of joy” the next morning with turkey, mashed potatoes, stuffing, gravy, green bean casserole (Ina’s only) and gravy. — @mary_helen55

I eat some warm with other leftovers for one day. Then I make pozole with the remaining turkey. — @mscalia78

Hot!!! I add butter to a pan, reheat/cook the turkey there, add some Muenster cheese and then add that to any bread with mayo! — @uvix

Neither. No turkey for me — it’s all about the sides. — @thatjuliegirl4
