Hot Turkey and Stuffing Sandwich

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.

It’s simple to make – slices of bread topped with layers of leftover stuffing and sliced roast turkey, then smothered in gravy. Don’t forget to serve cranberry sauce on the side too!


Hot Turkey and Stuffing Sandwich

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!

    Hi Martha
    I must to tell you I added your recipe for Harvard Beets to our to our Thanksgiving menu. It was a hit with the “three” members of our family who love beets!!! My daughter reminded me that had not made them in years. However, we had no converts to eating beets. Now my DH and I have plenty of leftovers.
    Hope you and your sweet family had a wonderful day.
    Blessings, Linda
