With Thanksgiving leftovers, you are bound to be making some kind of turkey sandwich. I’ve got you covered with this Monster Turkey Gobbler Sandwich. You've probably seen this before, but I'm taking all my favorites from my Thanksgiving feast and making a sandwich out of it. The best results involve using a high-quality bread in my opinion so I've reached for Iggy's Bakery once again. Their focaccia rolls are perfect for my monster turkey gobbler sandwich. Ciabatta rolls are great for this too!
Welcome to my Thanksgiving Series! I made a whole Thanksgiving feast for about $95 and it serves 8-10 people. You’ll probably still have some leftovers too! I bought a whopping 19 ½ pound turkey and economized as much as I could to keep this under $100. I know staying on a budget is important. This is my first Thanksgiving as a food blogger and I hope to add new Turkey Day recipes each year. The dinner here is a budget-friendly, beginner-friendly option.
All the Thanksgiving Series Essentials:
- Thanksgiving Turkey & Gravy
- Fantastic No-Frills Mashed Potatoes
- Easy Pepperidge Farm Stuffing with Apples & Celery
- Steamed Brussel Sprouts w/Toasted Pine Nuts & Bacon Bits
- Sautéed Butternut Squash with Caramelized Leeks & Thyme
- Killer Apple Pie with Butter Crust
Start with the standard turkey gobbler then make it your own
You may opt for the standard turkey, stuffing, cranberry sauce sandwich and that's it. You've made a great choice! Perhaps you'll slather a little mayonnaise on there as well. I'm not a mayo eater and the cranberry sauce, for me, is the condiment for the sandwich. For this take on the Thanksgiving leftover sandwich, I simply love a razor thin onion and alfalfa sprouts. Oh yeah, that, and really great bread from Iggy's Bread of the World. This is a fantastic bakery in Cambridge, MA. If you can, get to your local bakery and use high-quality bread for this one.
I decided not to make an official recipe card for this one, because it's a sandwich made from leftovers!
My monster turkey gobbler included:
