This Leftover Sandwich Might be the Best Part of Thanksgiving

With all the time spent cooking for Thanksgiving, you’re probably going to be left eating turkey for the next fortnight. That’s not necessarily a bad thing. Especially when this sandwich, which makes use of all those leftovers, is as delicious as it is.


  • 8 slices bread of your choice, toasted if desired
  • 1 cup turkey breast, sliced
  • 1 cup dark-meat turkey, shredded
  • 2 cups assorted Thanksgiving leftovers (green beans, sweet potatoes, mashed potatoes or other sides), warmed
  • 4 leaves lettuce 
  • 4 cups stuffing
  • ½ cup mayonnaise
  • ½ cup cranberry sauce
  • ½ cup leftover gravy
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 4 teaspoons olive oil
  • Kosher salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper


  1. In a small bowl, whisk together the mayonnaise and cranberry sauce. Set aside.
  2. Place the shredded dark-meat turkey and gravy in a saucepan and gently heat over medium-low, stirring occasionally, until warmed through. 
  3. Cook the stuffing in a non-stick skillet until browned and crisp.
  4. In the same skillet, melt the butter over medium-low heat until foamy. Add the sliced turkey breast, flipping occasionally until warmed through, and season with salt and pepper.
  5. Spread 2 tablespoons of the cranberry mayonnaise onto a slice of bread and layer your toppings. Spread more cranberry mayonnaise on the other slice of bread before closing the sandwich and cutting in half.
