The Anatomy of a Thanksgiving Sandwich


As much as I love a traditional Thanksgiving feast, it is all the leftovers that I look forward to eating. One of my all time favorites is the Thanksgiving sandwich. I layer turkey, stuffing, gravy and even cranberry sauce onto a crusty loaf, with just a touch of mayonnaise. I wrap my creation tightly in foil and bake until all of the flavors meld together. It is so unbelievably delicious and satisfying, it is worth all of the work required to make a Thanksgiving meal just to be able to enjoy this tasty Thanksgiving sandwich the next day.


Spread a small amount of Mayonnaise onto the crusty bread and layer sliced turkey, stuffing, gravy and cranberry sauce onto the bread.

  1. I like the love spent on this…I would eat it cold like a total slob, but you put them in the oven wrapped and everything, like the warmest little piggies. 🙂

  2. I usually use toast but I’m intrigued by the idea of baking the sandwich! Luckily we have lots of leftovers so I’ll try this tomorrow!
