The Moist Maker Thanksgiving Sandwich
The sandwich so good Ross Gellar was put on a sabbatical over it. Yes, Monica’s Thanksgiving leftovers sarnie has been recreated in real life, and yes, there’s even a Facebook fan page dedicated to all the different versions of it. We like this one; turkey, stuffing, cranberry sauce, tomato slices and of course, a gravy soaked slice of bread in the middle.
