Thanksgiving in a Bun

(2 Votes)
Updated September 29, 2016

Instead of letting your Thanksgiving leftovers go to waste, use 'em to make our Thanksgiving in a Bun recipe. This sandwich is basically a combination of everything that you love about Thanksgiving, all "stuffed" inside a roll. It's a recipe that adds a whole new meaning on a leftovers sandwich.

What You'll Need:
  • 1/4 cup mayonnaise
  • 4 kaiser rolls, cut in half
  • 12 ounces leftover sliced or shredded turkey meat
  • 1/4 cup cranberry sauce
  • 1 cup leftover stuffing
  • 1/4 cup leftover gravy
What To Do:
  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Tear 4 sheets of aluminum foil into 12- x 12-inch squares.
  2. Evenly spread mayonnaise on both sides of rolls. Layer bottom of rolls with equal amounts of turkey, cranberry sauce, stuffing, and gravy. Place tops of rolls over filling, place each on a sheet of foil, and seal tightly.
  3. Bake 15 to 20 minutes, or until heated through. Serve warm.
  • Top with extra warmed gravy, if desired.
  • And another favorite using leftovers? Why Turkey Noodle Soup, of course!

This is just plain delicious! Reminds me of what my mother used to make for my father's lunch, just on plain bread slices, when he had to work on Thanksgiving. She also made another sandwich for his co-worker, so they both had Thanksgiving as a sandwich and loved it.
