Leftovers? Eat like a pilgrim, Pilgrim Sandwich

The best part about Thanksgiving? The leftovers, duh!
For as long as I can remember, a local sub shop has offered a sandwich all year round that is a carb-oholic’s dream come true. The sandwich starts with a beautiful thick hoagie roll overflowing with stuffing, turkey, cranberries and a slather of mayo. It’s the kind of sandwich that requires a long nap or a marathon immediately afterwards.  It’s the kind of sandwich I only allow myself to order maybe once a year. It’s the kind of sandwich that give’s angels wings.

Oh yeah, it’s that good.

So, you can imagine how elated I am to stock up on ziplock containers and bring the mountains of Thanksgiving leftovers home and sink my teeth into one of these bad boys.

In case you’re wondering, I say skip the above steps and use up that fridge full of leftovers!


  1. Come on. Come ON!!!! Nice to know that someone else out there eats like me :) Happy Thanksgiving Kita! ♥

  2. Hilarious and probably pretty delicious too! I’ve never done that. Sadly no leftovers here to even try it with! I’ll have to buy a turkey this month just to have leftovers to eat :)

  3. The cranberry + mayo mixture looks like pure heaven! I could go for a sandwich right now.

  4. Oh YUM I know this is a recipe I’ll be trying within the next few days! We have so many leftovers I can hardly see my computer screen! This is a beautiful sandwich!

  5. Yeah, I can see why you wanted the leftovers. This looks amazing. I’d love to say that I’ll be able to make it, but I’d have to break out the whip and chair in order to get Hubby away from the turkey and stuffing. He’s of the belief that both belong solely to him. Maybe if I just showed him the picture up there…..hmmmmmmm.

  6. YAY! That’s a sandwich! I love thanksgiving style sandwiches and this one is a winner! You rock!

  7. Whoa, that last pic had me trying to eat the screen! Nice looking sandwich and I like your choice of bread I must add!
    Take care Kita…

  8. If you notice a blonde lady standing on your porch with a plate tomorrow, that’s just me. Please feed the blonde woman. Thank you!

  9. Wow, I want to be a pilgrim! ;) This looks absolutely delicious.

  10. This is sick :D I mean this is absolutely delightful! You’ve made me go from hungry to starving in just a moment of taking a peek at the picture, let alone reading the whole post, which I successfully did in the end. :)

  11. The addition of berry sauce keeps it tangy. The white cheddar and everything else… :) Scrumptious!

  12. We don’t have Thanksgiving here, but in Christmas we have turkey for dinner, so I will save this recipe for day after Christmas…this sandwich looks amazing…!!!

  13. Holy yum!! This is my kind of sandwich!!

  14. Looks perfect! My son loves to make sandwiches like this even for Thanksgiving dinner…everything on a bun!

  15. I love sandwiches like these.I have so much thanksgiving food. I’m ready to burst re-purposing all this crazy stuff I made. Lovely idea! Beautiful photos

  16. Your photos are AMAZING! I like haw your photos are bright. I like haw you make things happen.Haw do you make the photos bright? ;) ;) ;) ;)

    • Hi Taylor. I try to take all my pictures on days when its really sunny out and I set my table up about three feet from the window. I don’t use the flash either, it will wash out your picture. If you think the sun is giving your picture too much light, you can hang a white sheet over the window to soften it. Thank you very much for your comment on my blog!
