The Famous Frederickson Thanksgiving Turkey Sandwich

Here comes Thanksgiving and I’m not sure if I am more excited about the Thursday meal itself or the yummy day after sandwiches!!!  I know the answer at the Frederickson home this year… they are  celebrating Thanksgiving on Friday… so that means SANDWICHES! Not just any sandwich but The Famous Frederickson Turkey Sandwich!!!


So what is so special about this sandwich??? It is simply the best and I’m looking forward to my invitation again this year…


So here it is, The Famous Frederickson Thanksgiving Turkey Sandwich:


Sour Dough Bread-Toasted

Best Foods Mayonnaise

Ocean Spray Cranberry Jelly

Thinly Sliced Turkey Breast Meat

Brad’s Egg Salad (recipe to follow)

Crispy Bacon-made that day

Iceberg Lettuce Leaves – thoroughly dried

Sliced Swiss Cheese

“Building the Masterpiece”

Start with one slice of toasted sourdough bread and spread with Mayonnaise, then spread on the cranberry jelly, then layer the turkey breast meat, then the egg salad, the bacon, the lettuce, the Swiss cheese and top with other piece of toasted sourdough that has also been spread with mayo and cranberry jelly.


Brad’s Egg Salad

12 Hard Boiled Eggs-finely chopped
3/4 – 1 cup Mayonnaise – Best Foods
2-3 Tablespoons Yellow Mustard
1 Tablespoon Grey Poupon
1 Teaspoon Worcestershire Sauce
1/4 Teaspoon Freshly Ground Pepper

Mix… “just enough to stick, it’s the glue”

Brad says the egg salad is the most important part of the sandwich and it must be done right… or someone might get hurt!  Here are a few helpful hints:

1. Make sure the eggs are completely dry before you chop.
2. Do not mush them with a fork, chop with a knife… even “if shit flies everywhere!”
3. Start with less Mayonnaise to get the right consistency. When you start adding the mustard and Worcestershire Sauce it may get too runny… that’s not good!  And the mix consistency cannot be too dry either or then it does not act as the “glue” necessary to hold the everything together. Oh, and it cannot be  too wet either… so basically it has to be perfect. Add more mayo as needed to get the perfect texture to the mix.
4. DO NOT use diet mayo or Whole Foods brand, only Best Foods.
5. You don’t want the egg salad to be hot when you make the sandwich… so place the egg salad in covered dish and refrigerate for an hour before using.


I know it seems like there’s is a lot going on, but trust me… it’s perfection!!! I can’t wait and now you can’t either!

Thanks Brad for the recipe!

    Brad’s sandwich made the blog! For years we fed the kids and all the kids friends this sandwich the next day. Finally we included our friends for the sandwich feast. Now Brad insists on super fresh ingredients, including making ME roast another full turkey breast on Friday morning! Brad’s tip, make your egg salad really “gooey”. The turkey meat can handle it! ENJOY
