Ultimate Leftover Thanksgiving Turkey Sandwich

4 ounces sliced roasted turkey
1 tablespoon butter
¼ cup chicken stock
¾ cup stuffing
2 tablespoons gravy
2 slices sour dough bread
2 tablespoon cranberry sauce
1 tablespoon mayonnaise

Toast the sour dough bread. While the bread is toasting, prepare your other ingredients so that you are ready to assemble when it’s ready.
In a small sauté pan, melt the butter and chicken stock together over low heat. Add the turkey slices and cook for 3-4 minutes on low, turning the turkey frequently so that it does not take on any color from the cooking. You only want to reheat the turkey – not fry it – so make sure the heat is very low so there is a braising process in effect.
Combine the stuffing and the gravy in a small bowl. Give a good stir and microwave until heated through, about 1 minute. Stop the microwave after 30 seconds and stir it again.
When the bread is done, spread the cranberry sauce on one slice, making sure to cover the bread corner to corner, then top with the stuffing. Use a spoon to spread out the stuffing so that it, like the cranberry sauce, covers every inch of the bread.  On the other slice, spread the mayonnaise and top with the hot turkey. Combine the two slices together, turkey to stuffing, and serve.

  1. Yep, stuffed turkey/cran sandwich is one of the best parts of Thanksgiving. Add a piece of pie and it's a perfect meal!!!!

    I'm a card maker and last year I punched a paper turkey and had "Happy Thanksgiving" and on the inside of the card it said "Eat Pork, the OTHER white meat!"
