Thanksgiving Turkey Kids Lunch - a fun and healthy sandwich that the kids will love!

On November 3, McAlister’s Deli is offering their six classic club sandwiches for just $4 all day at participating locations. This includes the McAlister’s Club, Grilled Chicken Club, Orange Chicken Club, King Club, Black Angus Club and Veggie Club.

Since the day McAlister’s opened its doors, club sandwiches have always been a guest favorite. With generous portions and a wide variety of options ranging from ham to veggie, there is truly a club sandwich for everyone

As part of the National Sandwich Day celebrations, I’ve partnered with McAlister’s to create a one-of-a-kind masterpiece using only the ingredients in the Orange Cranberry  Club Sandwich, as my inspiration and materials. I will be sharing my original creation on my social media channels on our Facebook, Instagram, and Pinterest.

Turkey Kids Lunch

  • Butterball™ smoked turkey
  • Black Forest ham
  • bacon
  • sharp cheddar
  • Swiss
  • lettuce
  • tomatoes
  • Orange Cranberry sauce
  • 1 clementine
  • pineapple chunks
  • cranberries
  • candy eyes
  • 1 pretzel rod


Cut your bread slices into circles using a round cookie cutter or kitchen scissors. Cut out wings using small heart cookie cutters or use kitchen scissors and set aside. Fill the bread with your sandwich ingredients and place your sandwich on a plate.

Peel your clementine. Line the slices in 2 rows above the sandwich. Do the save with the pineapple chunks and cranberries. Cut 2 small pieces from a orange slice for the feet. Break your pretzel rod in half and press it in the top of the sandwich for the turkey neck. Cut out a small circle from the swiss cheese and place it on top of the pretzel. Cut out a small beak from the cheddar cheese and a cut a small slice from a cranberry for the wattle. Add on the candy eyes to the face and the bread wings to the body. Now you have this super cute Turkey Kids Lunch!
