On most days, I'm very methodical about how I eat my meal. I tend to eat all of the salad, then all of the entree, then all of the side dish. Thanksgiving is one of the only times when I don't care if my food mixes together. In fact, I encourage it. Turkey and gravy is pretty good, but turkey and gravy with cranberries and mashed potatoes is even better. This sandwich is my attempt to capture the awesomeness of a Thanksgiving dinner in a slightly easier to eat form.
- 2 slices of bread
- Mashed potatoes
- Spread mashed potatoes on both slices of bread, making sure you have enough around the edges to hold everything else in.
- Layer the turkey, gravy, stuffing/dressing, and cranberries on one slice of bread. Put the other slice of bread on top, adding more mashed potatoes around the edges as needed.
- Place a large skillet over medium-low heat. Lightly butter the top and bottom of the sandwich, then grill, flipping once, until golden brown on both sides.
If you turn the heat much above medium-low, the bottom of the bread will start to burn while the middle is still cold. It's worth the extra couple of minutes.
