  • For turkey sandwich:
  • 1 cup sliced leftover turkey (white or dark meat)
  • 1 cup gravy
  • 2 slices rye bread
  • For the cranberry mayo:
  • 1/2 cup cranberry sauce
  • 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
  • 2 tablespoons fresh orange juice

  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground white pepper
  • 1 egg yolk
  • For the potatoes:
  • 1 Idaho Russett Potato
  • 2 cups vegetable oil


  • 1 For the turkey: Combine leftover turkey and gravy in a saute pan in an even layer and warm over medium heat until hot.
  • 2 For the cranberry mayo: Combine cranberry sauce, dijon mustard, orange juice, salt and ground white pepper in a food processor and puree until smooth. Drizzle in the oil slowly to obtain a thick emulsion.
  • 3 For the potatoes: Peel the potatoeand cut into a long fine julienne (use a Japanese mandoline with medium teeth). Rinse the potatoes for 15 minutes under cold running water, then spread onto paper towels and dry well.
  • 4 Heat the oil in a one gallon pot until 325 degrees and add potatoes. Fry, stirring with a slotted spoon until golden brown. Remove from oil and blot well on paper towels, then season with salt and pepper.
