When it comes to Thanksgiving leftovers, turkey is the star, just like it is on the big day. When you’re just waking up the morning after the holiday, you’re still in a food coma of sorts and don’t want a super complicated recipe, am I right?
I just want to go to the fridge, grab some leftovers, and put them together into something. I’m so weird with leftovers, I don’t want a plate of warmed up food from the night before, I like making them into something different.

Thanksgiving Leftovers Breakfast Sandwiches
- 3-4 ounces leftover turkey
- 2 tablespoons leftover gravy
- 1 teaspoon butter
- 1 large egg
- 1 English muffin I like using multigrain English muffins
- Warm the turkey and gravy in the microwave (I usually recommend 1 minute and 30 seconds).
- In a small frying pan over medium-high heat, melt the butter. Crack egg into the pan and season with salt and pepper to taste. Cook the egg until your desired level of doneness is reached (I like a sunny-side-up or medium doneness for fried eggs. I cook my eggs for 5 minutes on one side and then gently flip it and cook it for another 1 minute so that the yolk is still soft and slightly runny but not super runny.)
- While the egg is cooking, toast up the English muffin.
- To assemble the sandwich place turkey on the bottom piece of the English muffin, top turkey with fried egg, pour gravy over the top and place top piece of English muffin on top and enjoy!
