Zowie’s Leftover Turkey Sandwich

Zowie, my 17-year-old daughter, has her own favorite turkey day leftover recipe. Today, after eating a full Thanksgiving meal at 4:00, she was ready to make her sandwich at about 7:00.


leftover turkey

2 slices of bread

leftover mashed potatoes

shredded cheese


leftover gravy

  1. Shred some turkey.
  2. Place the turkey on a slice of bread.
  3. Spread mashed potato over the turkey.
  4. Add some shredded cheese.
  5. Put the prepared bread, as well as one slice of bread with nothing on it, on a baking sheet.
  6. Bake until cheese is melted.
  7. Remove from the oven, put the topped bread on a plate.
  8. Pour some gravy on the topped bread.
  9. Add mayo to the plain bread.
  10. Enjoy!
  • You can use any condiment that you like for step 9.
  • Zowie eats this as a stand-alone lunch or dinner, but you could have vegetable side dishes with it.
  • Mozzarella cheese is great to use, but it is okay to use other cheeses.

(Update January 2017: This sandwich has used other Thanksgiving leftovers over the years. Also, It can’t really be called healthy. But I want to leave it here as it is an important family memory, and Thanksgiving leftover sandwiches can be quite delicious. Try one sometime. Tell me what you think.)

Happy Thanksgiving!
