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
