Hot Turkey Sandwich with Gravy

This open-faced Hot Turkey Sandwich with Gravy is a quick and easy diner-inspired comfort food recipe. My husband loves going to diners, and a hot turkey sandwich (or it’s roast beef counterpart) smothered in gravy is one of my favorite meals to order there. Since we haven’t been going to restaurants for a while now, I found myself craving those flavors and decided to try making it at home! The sandwich is pretty simple, after all. Soft bread, sliced turkey, and gravy. There are variations of course. Some are open-faced and some have another slice of bread on top. Some use carved turkey and some use deli turkey. I decided to keep mine simple, but if you have carved turkey breast on hand or want to add another slice of bread on top, you do you! You could even add a bit of cranberry jelly for a Thanksgiving dinner vibe. The way I’ve made it below, each sandwich with gravy is just 240 calories or 5 Green, 4 Blue or 4 Purple WW SmartPoints!

I love this Hot Turkey Sandwich with Gravy for nights when I realize I have nothing planned for dinner, because it’s quick and easy using ingredients I usually have on hand. All you have to do is make gravy! At most diners I’ve been to this sandwich is served with a choice of either mashed potatoes or French fries. Those are both delicious options, but it’s also good with green beans, roasted carrots, any other type of potatoes, or a cauliflower mash.

The only things you may not have in your kitchen to make this Hot Turkey Sandwich with Gravy are Better Than Bouillon and Gravy Master (or Kitchen Bouquet). Like I mention in the ingredient listing, you can substitute powdered bouillon for the Better Than Bouillon, but I highly recommend purchasing it. I’ve seen it in pretty much every grocery store I’ve been to, including a small local store in my area, so you should be able to find it pretty easily. I have the chicken, beef and vegetable bases in my fridge at all times. BTB is sort of a paste rather than a powder, and the flavor is just unmatched in my opinion. The other ingredient, Gravy Master (I use that product, but Kitchen Bouquet is a different brand’s product that is similar), adds flavor and browning to your gravy in a way that enhances the whole thing. I always add it when I make gravy, it’s a must!
