Thanksgiving Leftovers Sandwich—2 Ways

Nothing is more delicious than the “Thanksgiving Sandwich” — you know, that perfect assembly of turkey, stuffing, and cranberry made from all those delicious leftovers. In fact, some people look forward to the next-day Thanksgiving leftovers sandwich more than the Thanksgiving meal itself!

Granted, everyone has their own way of creating (and eating) these classic indulgences made from the leftovers, and no two are alike, but here are our favorite options; one served cold and one served warm.

Classic Thanksgiving Leftovers Sandwich


Leftover Thanksgiving turkey, sliced
Cranberry sauce
Salt and black pepper
Whole grain bread, crusty baguette, or leftover Thanksgiving dinner rolls


To make one sandwich, grab two slices of bread of your choice. On the bottom slice, spread a layer of mayo. Add the turkey slices and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Add the stuffing and lettuce. Spread cranberry sauce on the top slice of bread and assemble. Slice in half and enjoy!

Thanksgiving Leftovers Burrito


Leftover Thanksgiving turkey
Cranberry sauce
Mashed potatoes
Whole wheat or white flour tortillas

Tear off several small pieces of leftover turkey. In a frying pan, toss the turkey together with a few spoonfuls each of mashed potatoes, stuffing, and gravy, and warm them up. Layer the mixture onto a flour tortilla, top with cranberry sauce, and roll it up into a burrito. Serve warm.

If you notice a hole in the upper left-hand corner of your Farmers' Almanac, don't return it to the store! That hole isn't a defect; it's a part of history. Starting with the first edition of the Farmers' Almanac in 1818, readers used to nail holes into the corners to hang it up in their homes, barns, and outhouses (to provide both reading material and toilet paper). In 1919, the Almanac's publishers began pre-drilling holes in the corners to make it even easier for readers to keep all of that invaluable information (and paper) handy.
