A recipe for a Thanksgiving Turkey Sandwich with a moist maker. Thanksgiving Turkey Sandwich recipe with a moist maker. Hello! Everyone have a great Thanksgiving?! Every year I spend thanksgiving in Chicago (my hometown). I don’t get to make it home often, but Thanksgiving is a time I NEVER miss…why? Because my parents host Thanksgiving every yr and it’s just awesome…plain and simple awesome. I’m really close to my family and spending time with them is something I cherish more than anything. This yr was extra special because everyone was in town. My sister and her husband flew in from D.C, Jordan (my bf), Dexter (our little baby pooch) and I all came in from LA and we got to spend some much needed catch up time with some of my aunts, uncles and cousins and their new wives. Not to mention, its been nothing but an eating, drinking and bonding fest (with some golf playing here and there) ALL WEEK LONG! Oh and since we’re Korean my parents like to have all the traditional turkey day fixin’s , but they also always make sure to have a large spread of Korean food as well…so on top of turkey, ham, stuffing, potatoes, veg etc we have dumpling soup, all the Korean side dishes and massive sushi platters…it’s great. I’ve totally been in my happy place this week….oh did I mention that my parents have two dogs of their own?…and that some of our relatives and family friends who have dogs have been bringing them over too?…yea, so we’ve had a minimum of three dogs constantly running around and its been pure chaotic BLISS!

Anyway, everyone always asks me in a very assuming way, “Oh so you pretty much make thanksgiving dinner every year, right?” They’re surprised to learn that no, I most certainly do not. I mean yes, I help out. I’ve made the turkey before (Alton Brown’s recipe is THE BEST), I always seem to do the potatoes etc, but here’s the thing….I write recipes and cook for a living and sometimes a girl just wants to take a break. Well that and the fact that I will never be able to get enough of my mom’s home cooking. EVER.  One thing I make sure to do every single yr, every Friday afternoon after t-giving is make this…Thanksgiving turkey sandwiches, my second favorite sandwich after the banh mi. Yep, I know thanksgiving turkey sandwiches are great, but nothing new…BUT have you ever had one with a MOIST MAKER?! Yes, this is a nerdy “Friends” thing. The first time I learn about Monica Gellar’s moist maker, I thought it was pure genius. Placing a slice of gravy soaked bread in the middle? OMG! Other than the fact that I hate the word “moist” everything about this sandwich is real legit….like really. It’s also one of the best ways to use your leftovers. Just don’t bring it to work and leave it in the office fridge or THIS might happen to you…and that would be sad.

Okay enough of my rambling, sorry all, I know I ramble…but can’t help it!  I do hope everyone had an amazing Thanksgiving full of love, laughter, great eats and plenty of booze!  Cheers!

    I can’t believe it, what a great post!!! I knew once I saw the title you were talking about Friends and couldn’t wait to open the post….LOVE IT! Happy Belated Thanksgiving :)

  2. Jacquelyn | lark+linen Not Specified Not Specified

    It makes me so happy that you included the moist maker in your sandwich! I chuckled. And although I just ate lunch, I could definitely find room for that delicious looking thing

    Moist is a SUUUUUPER gross word. Can’t deal. This sandwich looks bangin’ tho, per usual. xo

  4. Pretty. Good. Food. Not Specified Not Specified

    Yup, I’m ready for seconds :)!

  5. April, Everyday Forgotten Not Specified Not Specified

    Oh wow, I neeeed to make this!

  6. Robert Montano Not Specified Not Specified

    I would use some sweet Hawaiin rolls in place of the wheat bread, and maybe some bacon, hahah

    • Jenny Park Not Specified Not Specified

      ROB! Get out of my brain!!! Did you know that when I make these for real I make them with Hawaiian bread?!?!?! Just thought I’d make it “healthier” with wheat bread :)

  7. Kayla @ Sheriff of the Kitchen Not Specified Not Specified

    Wait, when I saw this post at first, I thought moist maker was actually some sort of fancy sando making machine…I guess all the turkey has gone to my head! I get it now, def need a saturated piece of bread otherwise it can get a little dry. Good idea, and beautiful photo!

    “did you think it was YOUR sandwich with a moist maker?”

    Hilarious! I love that episode. :)

    This is simply amazing! Glad to hear you had a fun Thanksgiving!

  11. Anna Not Specified Not Specified

    I love leftover recipes specially if they turn out as delicious as the original recipes… The idea of the bread that makes the sandwich moist is brilliant. No more gravy dipping! This is plain and simple awesome. Great post…will start putting together my moist sandwich! Thanks!

  12. Sofie Dittmann Not Specified Not Specified

    I’ll use this as inspiration to help us gobble up some leftovers here… but w/ home-baked bread! :)

  13. The Americaine Not Specified Not Specified

    I didn’t even think about the grossness of the word “moist” because this sandwich looks banging! Plus moist kinda sounds naughty and I definitely think a gravy soaked center is a bit naughty.

  14. Stacey Not Specified Not Specified

    Genius! And “Friends” references are always appreciated!

  15. Nicole Franzen Not Specified Not Specified

    yummyyyy tummy is growling and we are out of leftovers… sad day

  16. Barbara Not Specified Not Specified

    Oh my…..if I had any turkey left, I’d be in the kitchen right now putting this together. A gravy layer?? I love it!

  17. Nicola Not Specified Not Specified

    I have met my fellow “moist” haters. No one I meet ever seems to get why that word makes me shudder. I love you guys : )

  18. Rachel @ Not Rachael Ray Not Specified Not Specified

    Totally genius. Looks amazing!

    This is a thing of beauty. I love that this is just as much about texture and making this a pleasure to eat as it is about flavour.

  21. Cate Not Specified Not Specified

    LOL – My skin crawls every time I hear the “M” word but I had to read on because that is one of my favorite episodes of Friends!

  22. Le Petit Bohemian Not Specified Not Specified

    Looks great! And with the whole wheat bread a bit more healthier. The only thing this recipe is missing from Thanksgiving dinner is mashed potatoes. Thinking about revamping this recipe?

    i love friends and this is so good, better than my trys to make this sandwich, but one thing that i would change and this has nothing to do with my preferences but sticking to friends, it would be light mayo, as monica says “it’s not mayonnaise”
