Moist Maker Friends Thanksgiving Leftovers Sandwich

Sharing is caring!

How to make ‘The Moist Maker,' the iconic turkey sandwich Ross from ‘Friends' made from Thanksgiving leftovers.

Some of my favorite holiday sitcom episodes are just unforgettable. My favorite one though? It has to be Ross and his Thanksgiving leftovers sandwich.

My daughter and I watch this all the time and laugh just as hard as the first time we saw it. Nothing is more hilarious than watching Ross freak out when his colleague took his Thanksgiving sandwich. If you have not seen it you definitely need to.

In season 5, episode 9 named “The One with Ross' sandwich,” Monica makes the best leftover turkey sandwiches — her secret being the extra slice of gravy-soaked bread in the middle which Ross refers to as the Moist Maker.

Kayla and I have always been curious if this sandwich was as good as Ross made it out to be, so we set out to give it a try ourselves!

How to Make the Moist Maker Friends Thanksgiving Leftovers Sandwich

For this recipe you will need

  • 3 slices of sandwich bread
  • Mayonnaise (optional)
  • Potatoes (I used my leftover Hassleback potatoes)
  • 1/4 cup gravy
  • 1/2 cup leftover turkey or deli-style slices
  • 1/4 cup canned cranberry sauce
  • 1/4 cup cornbread stuffing
  • Salt and pepper

Lay out a slice of bread. If using mayonnaise, spread an even layer over the slice of bread then top with a few slices of potato, then half the turkey, followed by half of the stuffing.

Pour the leftover gravy into a shallow dish. Dip a second slice of bread into the gravy and turn to coat. Top the stuffing with this moist maker slice.

Add the remaining turkey, cranberry sauce, and top with the rest of the stuffing and the final slice of bread.

Now I know you are wondering just like me, could this sandwich really taste as good as Ross makes it sound? The answer to that is OH MY GOD — YOU THREW MY SANDWICH AWAY???

Really, this sandwich is the most amazing thing I have ever bit into in my entire life. After putting it together, we ate the whole thing and both decided that we will be making these again when Thanksgiving leftovers abound this year.
