Today I bring you this delicious sandwich – i.e. the “Gobbler.”  And you’re gonna want to go make this as soon as possible with all your leftovers.

Now, if you grew up in New Jersey (or some of the states nearby), then you are probably more than familiar with the wonder that is Wawa.  Yes, I just said wonder.  I’m obsessed.  

For those of you that aren’t familiar with Wawa, it’s sort of a convenience store.  They have some of the best coffee on the planet and I make multiple visits whenever I’m home in New Jersey.  They also have a deli and each year they bring back the “gobbler” as a special holiday sandwich.  

Which is basically turkey with gravy, stuffing and cranberry sauce on a fresh roll.

I think I ate two of them within a 48-hour period the last time we were visiting my family.

So this is my own version of the “gobbler.”  I fancied it up a little bit with the addition of some arugula and gruyere cheese, but it still has those same wonderful basics that come on the one from Wawa.  

Get creative and make it your own.  There’s really no wrong way to go with your Thanksgiving leftovers combined into one glorious sandwich.

  • one to two slices gruyere or mozzarella cheese*
  • leftover cranberry sauce
  • leftover sliced turkey
  • leftover stuffing
  • baby arugula or spinach leaves
  • leftover gravy, optional

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350ºF. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
  2. Take one slice of bread and top with the cheese. Layer on the cranberry sauce, turkey, stuffing and arugula (if desired, first dip the turkey slices in the gravy, shake off the excess and then add to the sandwich). Top with the other slice of bread, then place on the prepared baking sheet.
  3. Bake for about 10 to 15 minutes, until the cheese is melted and the bread is lightly toasted. Alternatively, you can just toast the bread and then assemble the sandwich.
