Black Friday Bobbie

The dishes are clean and put away, the table linens are in the washing machine and the house seems empty after the controlled chaos that is Thanksgiving. After an early morning of Black Friday bargain hunting and back home for scouring, you have worked up an appetite; it’s time to break out the leftovers [insert eye roll here.]

Okay, for some us, the thought of eating more turkey is repugnant, but for the “bona fide golly turkicanis freak,” there is no such thing as too much turkey. The sandwich, made famous by Capriotti’s Sandwich Shop, was voted the Greatest Sandwich in America by AOL’s in 2009. “The Bobbie” (Thanksgiving dinner in a sandwich) is a year-round favorite in Las Vegas where it is reputed to be the best way to recharge after a late night out on the town.

  • 1 (9-inch) hoagie or submarine roll
  • 4 ounces roasted turkey, thinly sliced
  • 4 ounces turkey stuffing
  • ¼ cup cranberry sauce
  • Mayonnaise
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Split the sub roll lengthwise and spread a light coating of mayonnaise on each half. On the bottom half of the roll, layer the turkey, stuffing, and cranberry sauce, and salt and pepper to taste. Cover with top of roll, slice in half, and serve immediately.

You can almost imagine the glow of neon and Tom Jones singing in the background as you bite into this refrigerator-cleaning snack. Now, full refreshed, it is time to go get the Christmas tree and decorations...
