The Moist Maker

When Ross Geller brought his Thanksgiving leftovers sandwich to work for lunch, it was 'mistakenly' eaten by a co-worker. The mishap escalated to the point that he was put on sabbatical for his aggressive behavior because he was so upset — but can you blame him? It “was the only good thing going on” in his life and on Friday you’ll understand why. Spoiler: It's the gravy soaked bread that sets this leftover sandwich apart from the rest.

Inspired by the infamous sandwich from Friends, this moist maker is a delicious way to enjoy your Thanksgiving leftovers for days to come.  


  • Gravy
  • Turkey
  • Stuffing
  • 3 slices of bread
  • Cranberry sauce


Heat up the gravy in a small pot over medium to low heat, or microwave it. For a hot sandwich, put the turkey and stuffing in another pan with a little bit of water over medium to low heat or microwave them, otherwise you can begin layering.

Lay out two slices of bread, and spread the cranberry sauce as you would any other condiment on both slices. Pile the turkey on one slice. Once the gravy is reheated, dunk the third slice of bread in it entirely, so that it soaks up the gravy like a sponge. Lovingly place the moist maker on top of the turkey, then add the stuffing and close up the sandwich with the other slice of bead. Use toothpicks for support and beware of theft.
