Our Hot Turkey and Stuffing Sandwich is a wonderful, nap-inducing second act for all of your Thanksgiving leftovers.
We’ll admit that today’s Hot Turkey and Stuffing Sandwich is really more of a Thanksgiving leftovers idea than it is a recipe. But, it’s one of the meals that our entire family always looks forward to eating in the days after our Thanksgiving feast.
If your family is like ours, we always wish we made more gravy to serve with all of the leftovers – including this Hot Turkey and Stuffing Sandwich. So, in our recipe below, we include instructions on how to make a hot turkey gravy without drippings.
The gravy is made with a flavorful, homemade turkey stock that we cooked using our leftover turkey carcass – but you can also use store-bought turkey stock or even chicken stock in a pinch. We also added some browning and seasoning sauce (we use Kitchen Bouquet) for additional flavor.
Have a great weekend everyone!

4 tablespoons butter
6 tablespoons flour
3 cups turkey stock, heated
½ teaspoon gravy browning and seasoning sauce, such as Kitchen Bouquet
1 pound cooked turkey; white meat sliced into thick slices, dark meat broken up into bite sized pieces
1 pound cooked leftover stuffing
Soft Italian or sour dough bread
Cranberry sauce, to serve on the side
In a medium to large sauce pan, melt butter over medium heat and add flour. Cook stirring often for three minutes until the mixture loses the raw flour smell.
Add the hot stock one third at a time, whisking to a creamy consistency between each third.
Add the gravy flavor color and whisk. Then check for seasoning. Adjust if needed.
Add the cooked turkey, and stir gently then keep on low heat.
Microwave the leftover stuffing until hot.
For each portion, place two slices of bread on dinner plates and top with stuffing and the turkey and gravy. Serve with cranberry sauce on the side.
