Leftover Holiday Turkey Wrap
This copy-cat Earl of Sandwich Restaurant recipe uses up those holiday leftovers in a hearty turkey wrap: slow cooked turkey, stuffing, cranberry sauce, and gravy inside a wrap or your favorite bread.
How was everyone’s Thanksgiving? I hope you all had a great time with family and friends, but most importantly, great food (I’m kidding, of course). I had a great day and had TWO Thanksgiving dinners – it doesn’t get much better than that! I had one dinner with my in-laws and one with my side of the family. You can never have too much turkey (and in my case, the side dishes).
So there’s this restaurant called Earl of Sandwich in Downtown Disney, Orlando. Everyone knows my obsession with Disney World, right? Every single time I’m in Orlando it is an absolute necessity that I make a beeline for this sandwich place and have one of these holiday turkey sandwiches. They are so addicting and they have them all year ’round! I actually crave these sandwiches on a regular basis. Thanksgiving dinner is my favorite meal of all time and this place has this meal made into a sandwich. Brilliant. It’s honestly one of the best sandwiches I’ve ever had and this coming from a self-proclaimed food snob.
What makes this sandwich, and my turkey wrap, special is that it’s served warm, with sliced turkey, cranberry sauce, stuffing, and GRAVY. The cranberry sauce gives it a nice tang and the rich gravy coats all the ingredients for this huge burst of flavor. There was no question in my mind that I needed to recreate this sandwich at home. I decided to make it in a wrap for something a little different. Feel free to use your favorite fresh-baked bread when you try this. It’s an after-Thanksgiving leftover classic sandwich with all of the fixings! It will make a satisfying dinner for a busy weeknight. You can make these turkey wraps at any time of the year, even when you don’t have leftovers, as I linked below to the recipes to start from scratch. If you’re anything like me, you can’t wait for Thanksgiving for this meal. Enjoy!
