Thanksgiving Day sub

As I said in another thread, I do not cook myself a big dinner on Thanksgiving. I have too much going on to devote time and effort to a traditional dinner. But I do still have to eat So maybe it's because I just made a Primanti Bros sandwich last week, but my mind was leaning towards trying to create a Turkey Day sandwich. One with a little bit of everything. And this is what I came up with.

I diced some celery and onion and sauteed them in butter with a little poultry seasoning and some fresh sage.
I also browned some turkey sausage in vegetable oil in another pan. After it was browned I added some chicken stock and covered to simmer.
When the veggies are soft and the sausage is done, remove to a plate, cover and keep warm.

Turn up the heat on the sausage pan, add a flour and milk slurry, some S&P and turn into gravy.
Spoon some stock onto a sub roll to soak into the bread, add some more butter to the veggie pan if necessary and toast the bun.

And of course what's a Thanksgiving Day dinner without some mashed potatoes and gravy...with a veggie. Feel free to substitute sweet potatoes

Spoon the veggies onto the toasted bun. I call this "bun stuffing". Just like stuffing without the cubes Sort of. Add a couple turkey sausage links, some mashed potatoes and gravy and there you have it. A Thanksgiving Day sub. Nobody ever accused me of lacking imagination

Thanksgiving on a bun. Very creative. Looks like you had to struggle to get that into your mouth.

Andy, that's why I left off the cranberry sauce
It was doable, but I set it back down and ate it open-faced.

I was looking at the pics in order, and thought hmm, no cranberries. I see by way of explanation you did think about cranberries. Next time.

Vertical horizontal dinner. Looks good.

Cranberries?!
The only thing cranberries are good for is mixing their juice with vodka
Thanks Whiska

Looks really good. If you wanted something with the tangy flavor of cranberries, but isn't' cranberries, you could try the cherry sauce I made yesterday. We really liked it: Turkey Sauté with Fresh Cherry Sauce
