How to Make Ross Geller's Iconic Turkey Sandwich from 'Friends'


If you're looking for way to use up your Thanksgiving leftovers, the official "Friends" cookbook will allow you to make some of your favorite TV recipes, including the iconic Moist Maker.

Joey may have loved eating sandwiches on the '90s sitcom, but none of his sandwiches rivaled the Moist Maker, which wasn't just "a sandwich," it was the sandwich first concocted by Monica Geller (Courtney Cox) for her brother Ross Geller (David Schwimmer).

In season 5 episode 9 fittly titled “The One with Ross’ Sandwich,” Monica uses leftover Thanksgiving trimmings to create the gravy-soaked delicacy.

With slices of turkey, stuffing, and gravy, it’s no wonder Ross was beside himself when he found out his co-worker not only ate but threw out half of “his sandwich.”

If you’ve always dreamt of recreating the Moist Maker at home to see if Ross’ anger was justified, you’re in luck!

The recipe is included in the “Friends” cookbook by Amanda Yee, which was published on September 22.

Monica may have used Thanksgiving leftovers, but if you’re one of those people that longs for the holidays year-round, you’re going to want to make this as soon as possible… or before anyone has a chance to eat it before you do!

Can there be a more perfect and iconic sandwich?
