How to Make a Hot Turkey Sandwich

To prepare this mouth-watering meal for four, start by reheating your turkey, stuffing, and gravy!

Next, lay out 4 pieces of white “Texas Toast” style bread on 4 plates. You can toast the bread if desired, but I prefer it fresh.

Now add mayonnaise to each piece and spread it evenly. (This is personal preference, my sister looked at me like I was a monster when I suggested no mayo.)

Next up, pull out that delicious homemade stovetop from Grandma and place it on top of each piece of bread.

Top that with cranberry sauce followed by 1-2 large slices of turkey per sandwich.

Now, hopefully, you kept some leftover gravy but if not, I recommend you prepare some because without it this won’t taste as good. Pour the gravy liberally overtop of everything, add a bit of salt and pepper (as desired), and serve piping hot!

Hope you enjoy it!
