Turkey Sandwich

Update 11/23/12

This is a repost from last year, but as the Leftover Thanksgiving Turkey & Stuffing Sandwich is truly timeless, I felt it fair that this post could be too.

A few notes for this year: Baby Boy is now Toddler Boy, and we have a new Baby Boy who is just a few weeks old and not cut out for eating stuffing just yet. But Toddler Boy did indeed eat stuffing, as well as sweet potato casserole, a few bites of biscuit, and other odds and ends. It was more a “Tasting” of Thanksgiving for him, but that is alright. Can’t wait for next year! Until then, if you’ve got leftovers still in your fridge, you have got to give this sandwich a try!

We hope everyone enjoyed their Thanksgiving! We did. Baby Boy too. He got to try some turkey – his first time eating meat. Being his father’s son he loved it, of course. Sitting on my lap as I broke off little pieces of turkey, Baby Boy would open his mouth and grab at my hand for more.

He’ll have to wait a few years though until I can share this delicious turkey and stuffing sandwich with him – at least until he gets some teeth. Again, being my son, I know he is going to devour this sandwich just as quickly as I do. It’s my favorite! So although Thanksgiving is over and hopefully you’ve used up your leftovers by now, I wanted to share this sandwich with you.

Thanksgiving Turkey Sandwich

This sandwich isn’t going to win any awards for attractiveness. But you know, often times its the ugly and messy sandwiches that taste the best. The Thanksgiving leftover turkey sandwich is kind of a hallmark of the holiday. Either later that Thanksgiving night, or the next day for lunch, you pull out those leftovers and whip up a tasty sandwich. And because it’s Thanksgiving, you are pretty much guaranteed to have leftovers. I think it’s a requirement of the holiday. And if there is a chance you won’t have leftovers you make a second bird just to make sure of it – yep, I’ve done that.

Thanksgiving Turkey Sandwich

Let’s be honest here. This post isn’t so much a recipe as it is an ode to my favorite sandwich – the Thanksgiving leftover turkey sandwich. Everyone has their own variation. Mine is this: some leftover turkey, a scoop of Mom’s sausage stuffing, a spoonful of Dad’s gravy. I heat that all up in a fry pan and toss it onto toast with some salt, pepper and mayonnaise. Garnish with some cranberry sauce on the side and I’m in heaven.

So there you have it. That’s how I like my Thanksgiving leftover turkey sandwich. And one day, Baby Boy is going to get to enjoy it as well.


Thanksgiving Turkey Sandwich

Leftover Thanksgiving Turkey & Sausage Stuffing Sandwich


  • Turkey
  • Sausage Stuffing
  • Gravy
  • Salt and Pepper to taste
  • Mayonaise
  • Cranberry Sauce on the side


  1. In a frying pan put enough turkey and sausage stuffing to fill your sandwich. Hungry? Go overboard. Need a snack? Just put a little. Just eye ball it! 🙂
  2. Add some of the left over gravy - again, to your preference. Make your sandwich so messy you need a fork to eat it if you want.
  3. When the turkey and stuffing are hot, transfer onto toast spread with mayonnaise.
  4. Salt and pepper to taste.
  5. Enjoy!

    Is it weird that I’ve never had a stuffing/turkey sandwich – ever?! Sounds delicious. I can practically taste it. I should really check out turkey prices at the store later so I can cook and have leftovers of our own!

      It’s a complete carb overload but so tasty – I bet your husband would love it! 🙂 What kind of stuffing do you usually make?

    The stuffing/bread sandwich idea always overwhelms me with carbs (seriously…I think that should somehow be a good thing!) but this sandwich is strikingly similar to one of my husband’s leftover favorites!

      It’s totally a carb overload, but so good! =D

    It’s ALWAYS the ugly messy ones that have 100% taste going on. Even tastier if you get a bit of drippage happening down your hand as you chomp on through.

    This is my favorite sandwich, ever. I didn’t even give away many leftovers to my Thanksgiving guests because I am greedy and wanted to eat all of them in sandwich form. I’ll be having my final sandwich tonight, sadly.

      Yes! That was me two years ago when we had one bird and limited left overs. Rachel packed leftovers for my parents. When I saw it I said, what’s this? Leftover for my parents? Oh no – they don’t need leftovers. I put it right in the fridge for me to enjoy the next day. Sorry Mom and Dad ^_~
