I think a leftover Thanksgiving Sandwich is one of the best things about thanksgiving meal. It might sound silly, but I look forward to these sandwiches every black Friday. They’re so ridiculously indulgent and perfect.
We love this thanksgiving sandwich so much and think the extra gravy soaked bread really takes this sandwich over the top! We drew inspiration for this sandwich from one of our favorite show, Friends, where Monica makes leftover thanksgiving sandwiches with a gravy soaked slice of bread, which she coined as the “moist maker”. It’s a very appropriate name too because it truly ensures your sandwich won’t be dry in any way, while also adding more flavor. Some of you might remember THIS scene from the episode, which is the best and never seems to get old!
Anyway, this is quite a hefty sandwich and we know the added carbs from both the third slice of bread AND the stuffing might be a little much for some. If that’s the case for you, I highly recommend still making this sandwich, but instead of adding an extra slice of bread, just dip each slice of turkey into the gravy. You still get the delicious flavor of the gravy in the sandwich, but can trim away at a little bit of the extra carbs.

This is so delicious! As an old lady though I have to point out that the thanksgiving leftover sandwich with a ‘moist maker’ is from an episode of Friends. Ross coined the term ‘moist maker’ for the gravy soaked bread Monica put in the middle ☺️
Hi Marcee! We’re so happy you love the sandwich! We’re definitely familiar with the episode and our sandwich is a nod to that particular Friend’s sandwich (we actually mention it in our post)!
This looks like my husband’s idea of bliss. Yum!
