Turn your Thanksgiving leftovers into chef-created gourmet sandwiches

Thanksgiving is a time for family, friends and feasting, but we all know that no matter how good your dinner is, there are only so many leftovers that you can really stomach!

Sessions West Coast Deli Culinary Director Max Schlutz, whose sandwiches earned “Sandwich of the Year” status last month from the Orange County Register, has a few great ideas to transform your Thanksgiving leftovers into gourmet sandwiches that are anything but boring!

Among his sandwiches are:



Turkey tinga, pickled onions, shredded cabbage, lime crema and guacamole on freshly toasted ciabatta.


Hormone free fried turkey, cranberry coulis or gastrique, sage cream cheese, horseradish slaw – kettle chips/mashed potato served on a freshly baked french roll.


Hormone free roast turkey, whole berry cranberry chow-chow, swiss, sliced ham, kosher dill pickles, cherry peppers, pressed on ciabatta.


Hormone free roast turkey, fresh mozzarella, pickled onion, marinated heirloom tomato, fresh arugula (shaved brussel sprouts?), basil aioli, and balsamic or fig reduction on a freshly baked french roll.


Hormone free fried turkey, sausage stuffing, pepperjack, cherry peppers, razor onions, sprouts, adobo buttermilk dressing.

Ideas for Sides:

  • White Turkey Chili
  • Fried Mashed Potato croquets
  • Thanksgiving Popsicle
  • Thanksgiving in a jar
  • Stuffing Hash

Sessions West Coast Deli, with locations in Newport Beach and Huntington Beach, operates with one mission: to serve the best sandwiches to ever hit the lip. As a neighborhood-casual concept designed to serve its immediate community, Sessions embraces the area’s surf culture as it presents a menu of gourmet, culinary-focused sandwiches in a relaxed environment. The term “West Coast Deli” perfectly describes the marriage of a high-quality deli menu with a chill vibe that appeals to area locals and tourists, alike.

Unlike most sandwich shops in the region, Sessions proudly boasts a scratch kitchen with housemade sauces, sides, salads, and soups prepared daily. All sandwiches are made to order with fresh, locally grown produce; humanely and naturally raised meats; and locally baked bread delivered daily from local artisan, OC Baking Company. In addition, the restaurant proudly serves a selection of locally roasted coffee beverages from Kean Coffee.
