Maple Peanut Butter Gobbler Sandwich

Print This Recipe Print This Recipe

One of my all-time favorite sandwiches is the “gobbler.” This sandwich can consist of any permutation of Thanksgiving leftovers, but my ultimate combination absolutely must include turkey, homemade whole berry cranberry sauce, and mashed sweet potatoes. To be perfectly honest, I don’t reserve the gobbler only for the day after Thanksgiving… I enjoy it throughout the year using either sliced deli turkey or poached chicken breast meat. Although my interpretation of the gobbler is real close to sandwich perfection, the unique but absolutely delicious addition of maple peanut butter seals the deal because — let’s face it — doesn’t peanut butter make everything better?

Cranberry-Cherry Sauce

Ingredients

4 cups frozen cherries
2 cups frozen cranberries
2 tablespoons pure maple syrup
1/4 cup dried cranberries
1/4 cup dried cherries
1 tablespoon arrowroot powder or cornstarch
1/4 teaspoon pure maple or vanilla extract

Procedure

1. Combine all ingredients in a large saucepan, stirring to mix.
2. Place on stove over medium-high heat until the fruit begins to sizzle, about 2 minutes.
3. Reduce stove heat to low and simmer until fruit breaks down and sauce has thickened, about 20 minutes, stirring often. If the cranberries need a little help breaking down, gently press with the back of a spoon until they burst.
4. Cool to room temperature and then chill in the refrigerator until cold.

    Know I’m really ready for a turky sandwich. It is the only way I eat my Thanksgiving turkey. Funny!!! That looks so yummy I am going to try that!!!!

  5. Kathy Lollar says:

    I actually believe I would add some marshmallow creme to this sandwich, because it would go well with the sweet potatoes and cranberry sauce and give the turkey a sweet satisfying taste, plus it will taste great with the Mighty Maple PB. Yum!

  6. sharon says:

    Very interesting take on the gobbler, which is also a favorite of mine! But mine must have stuffing, which is really weird since it’s bread inside bread, lol!!

  7. Jessica S. says:

    I think a thin slice of cheddar or swiss would go good. 🙂

  8. Mary L. says:

    Stuffing was my first choice. But I would consider adding some chopped walnuts or some aged cheddar cheese.

  9. Wanda S says:

    Bacon N lettuce- it would give it more yummy crunch!!! not being a sweet potatoe fan it still would be YUMMY!!!!!!!!!!! Also a slice of provolone cheese

    veganize it! take out the turkey and add some crisp apples and chopped up vegan pumpkin pie!

  11. Cortney says:

    I think it sounds fabulous! I would add apple chips or chopped pecans for crunch!

  12. megan kupres says:

    I think this sandwich sounds really interesting but since I am vegan I would definitely add leftover tofurky instead or add in banana slices with a dash of cinnamon.
