One of the best things about Thanksgiving is the leftovers. Turkey, dressing, cranberry sauce, mashed potatoes – the Thanksgiving spread only grows more flavorful the next day. On the now-legendary Friends episode, Ross Geller discusses the Thanksgiving sandwich his sister, Monica, makes. It includes a host of fillings, including a piece of bread soaked in gravy, known as the “moist-maker.” His discovery of the theft of the sandwich by an unknown coworker and subsequent meltdown, leading to the term “Red Ross,” is the stuff of legends. But that is just how good a leftover sandwich can be.
Philip Kaiser, owner of Cosmo Café, where the Thanksgiving sandwich makes an appearance on the menu year-round, says theirs is constructed with smoked turkey, cream cheese, cranberry relish, hot stuffing and tomatoes. It’s a delicious bite that evokes Thanksgiving 365 days a year, and it’s a great inspiration for an at-home version. 3334 S. Peoria Ave., Tulsa. www.cosmo-café.com
