We Tried The “Moist Maker” Thanksgiving Leftover Sandwich From “Friends” To Find Out If It’s As Good As Ross Says It Is

One thing is known for sure: Ross is the worst.

If you're a Friends fan, then you probably know there's only one way to make a Thanksgiving leftover sandwich: with a "Moist Maker."


Apparently, Monica's creation is so delicious that, in the episode titled "The One With Ross's Sandwich," it causes Ross to enter a fit of rage when it's stolen from him at work. He's eventually ordered to take a leave of absence after he yells at his boss, who stole the sandwich.

The ingredients of the recipe are never explicitly stated in the episode, so it's up to the sandwich-maker to decide which leftovers they want to devour. Here's what we included in the sandwich:

- 3 slices of bread

- Gravy

- Stuffing

- Turkey

- Cranberry sauce

- Mashed potatoes (optional)


After spreading the ingredients on the bread and adding the Moist Maker, which was soaked in gravy, our taste-testers were tasked with determining how delectable the Thanksgiving leftover sandwich actually is.

"It’s really not bad. I actually don’t mind this ... I mean, this is a big sandwich. I would be pissed if somebody took both of these. This is a legit meal — you don’t need to eat anything else. If somebody took all of this from me, there would be hell to pay."

"Listen, I’m not going to say it’s bad, but I don’t think Ross needed to freak out about it … I bet if it was really warm and you had brand-new turkey, I bet it would be a three-and-a-half turkeys."

"If anything, he should be happy someone stole this sandwich. I’m sorry. I love Thanksgiving, I love sandwiches, but I do not love them together … The Moist Maker is exactly how you'd expect it to be based on the name."

"I don’t know how I feel about the middle layer of gravy and bread. I feel like if it was just gravy on top of the mashed potatoes, no more bread, it would be just as moist and delicious."

"The Moist Maker is redundant if you’re making a sandwich with moist things. Right? It would already become moist. I don’t know if you have to go out of your way to moist-make it, or whatever it's called. But it’s really good. It really is a true Thanksgiving dinner wrapped in a little bite."
