Epic Leftovers Sandwich

The left over sandwich is one of my favorite moments of the holiday season, sometimes more even more than the meal itself. My mom has perfected it: soft, chewy bread, a perfect blend of the leftovers and plenty of arugula to add some freshness.


  • 2 slices sourdough bread, toasted
  • 3 Ounce roasted turkey meat
  • 2 Tbsp cooked yams (or any yam/sweet potato dish)
  • 2 Tbsp cranberry sauce
  • 2 Tbsp gravy
  • handful of arugula, lightly dressed in olive oil


  1. On the bottom slice of bread, spread the yams and top with turkey. Place the arugula on top of the turkey.
  2. On the other slice of bread, spread the cranberry sauce and gravy (this is easier when they're both straight from the fridge and a bit thicker). Sandwich the two slices together, cut in half with a knife, and devour.
