Ross’s Leftover Thanksgiving Sandwich is the sandwich you need to make the day after!
Starring Monica’s ‘Moist Maker,’ this sandwich is just delicious!
We all know the episode.
We can all hear him now, “You ate my sandwich? My SANDWICH? MY SANDWICH?!”
It’s one of my most favorite Friends episodes, and it’s not Thanksgiving season without watching it at least once.
So, today I’m showing you how to take your leftovers and create the most delicious leftover turkey sandwich, Ross’s Leftover Turkey Sandwich. Which includes Monica’s Moist Maker.
WHAT IS IN ROSS’S LEFTOVER THANKSGIVING SANDWICH?
Start this whole process by toasting the inside of a hoagie bun with LOTS of butter. Smearing butter crust to crust!
Flip these into a skillet and toast over medium heat until golden brown.
While this toasts, move onto the next step…
In a small bowl or ramekin, mix equal parts leftover cranberry sauce and Duke’s mayonnaise. Since I’m only making one sandwich here, it’s about a tablespoon of each. You definitely want enough to layer on each side of the bun.
After the buns have toasted, set them aside and place a slab of dressing in the pan. If you need a good recipe for dressing or stuffing, use this one! It’s so so so good!
Break up the big chunk of dressing, into smaller pieces. If you need to add some butter here you can.
It’s the holiday season, so butter is okay. 😉😉
Get out your tub of leftover gravy and scoop some into the pan with the dressing pieces. This is what I use as the ‘moist maker.’ Monica’s is a slice of bread, dipped into the gravy, but my gravy is very gelatinous from good bones, so it needs to be heated, and mixing with the dressing is what I’ve done for years. You won’t regret the situation, I promise.
Just a couple of spoonfuls. Don’t get all gross on me, keep it under control.
Now, we’ll start layering Ross’s Sandwich
Slather on a healthy amount of the cranberry mayo. You want a substantial amount. Plus, it’s addictively delicious!
Add some shredded leftover turkey. Grandma’s Roasted Turkey works so well for this sandwich!
The next layer is the dressing covered in gravy…
Now, I got so excited, I forgot to take a picture of the Moist Maker part… But, you can see it amid the next photo.
Top the Moist Maker with more turkey. You can see I opted for the light meat on this layer.
Ross’s Leftover Thanksgiving Sandwich is so good, y’all!! Get excited.
Top the whole sandwich with a bun slathered in more cranberry mayo, and go to town!
Just make sure you leave a note telling folks to keep their mitts of your grub!
This is a very messy sandwich, it will fall out all over the place, so be prepared with lots of napkins and a fork to pick up all the goodness!
