Day After Thanksgiving Sandwich

Day After Thanksgiving Sandwich

Got turkey? It’s time to create your Day After Thanksgiving Sandwich. Back  when Grant was a student and I was a working girl, I had a job at an office building in downtown Portland. On the ground floor of the building, there was a sandwich shop called Freddie Brown’s. Their specialty was a roasted turkey sandwich with cranberry sauce. As I walked past Freddie’s every morning, the aroma of roasting turkey filled the air and I plotted ways to get together enough money to go down for lunch and grab a sandwich. It was a simple sandwich: fresh white bread, mayo on one side, butter on the other, hot carved turkey, white or dark meat (I usually chose a combo), cranberry sauce, salt and pepper. This sandwich usually put me in a bit of a turkey coma, which would lead to a short nap in my cubicle after lunch. I love the day after Thanksgiving. I’m not much of a Black Friday shopper. Just like to hang out and eat a great sandwich and plan how Christmas is going to happen. The sandwich is made just like Freddie Brown’s- except I pile on a layer of dressing as well.
Cheers to the turkey coma.
And a little nap.

  1. This looks so dang good. I like your "Don't be stingy" comment. I was making my turkey sandwich on Friday and my brother in law said "would you like some sandwich with your mayonnaise?" Bring it on dude.
