Ross Geller’s Turkey Moist Maker Sandwich in all its glory. Turkey breast, stuffing, cranberry sauce and the important moist maker layer, this is the sandwich of your dreams.
Turkey Moist Maker Sandwich, just say it to yourself over and over again because no, you’re not living in Ross Geller’s dreams, you are seeing one of the best sandwiches…ever.
Yesterday I posted my recipe for Slow Cooker Crispy Turkey Breast (which was brought to you by the non-profit organization, The National Turkey Federation) and today I’m sharing my favorite way use that delicious turkey in a sandwich. I’m dating myself a bit here, but I went through all of high school and college watching Ross, Rachel, Monica, Chandler, Phoebe and my love, Joey (yes I was one of the 15 people who watched all two seasons of Joey).
Need a refresher in how awesome this sandwich is? Here’s a clip of poor Ross’ meltdown when someone ate his sandwich.
The sandwich is sweet from the cranberry sauce, savory from the turkey, salty from the gravy fresh from the tomato and lettuce and crunchy from the stuffing. This Turkey Moist Maker Sandwich is not just about reliving the glory days of Friends, but it’s also an amazingly well balanced sandwich. Monica definitely knew what she was doing.
You can certainly make this sandwich after Thanksgiving with your leftovers but we made this sandwich all year round. I’d rather not wait until November so I took about thirty minutes and made the stuffing (any of your favorite stuffing recipes) and gravy from my Slow Cooker Crispy Turkey Breast and we’ve been enjoying the most awesome Turkey Moist Maker Sandwich for lunch all week.
