1 tablespoon unsalted butter
1 large (about 2 cups) thinly sliced onion
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
3 tablespoons cider vinegar
1/2 cup barbecue sauce
1/2 cup water
4 cups (about 1 pound) leftover chopped cooked turkey breast
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
6 (1 1/2-ounce) Kaiser rolls or hamburger buns, split and warmed
Dill pickles (optional)
Hot sauce (optional)


1. Melt butter in a medium saucepan over medium-high heat. Add onion and sprinkle with salt; cook, stirring frequently, until soft (about 7-9 minutes). Add vinegar, barbecue sauce, and 1/2 cup water; simmer 5 minutes. Add turkey to sauce mixture, and stir until thoroughly heated (about 3-5 minutes). Add pepper, taste, and season with additional salt, if needed.

2. Arrange turkey evenly on bottom halves of buns; top each portion with additional sauce. Cover with bun tops; serve with pickles and hot sauce, if desired.
