The classic New Orleans Po'boy gets a tasty holiday spin. We packed this sandwich full of our favorite thanksgiving leftovers—from the turkey to the cranberry sauce and dressing, and, of course, we can't leave out the gravy. You'll be transported back to the big feast with the very first bite. As with all Po'boys, it's imperative to make sure your bread is on point. This recipe calls for French bread loaves. We love their crusty exterior and find they make the perfect vessel for this hearty sandwich. Warm them in the oven before packing them with these delicious seasonal ingredients. Use your favorite store-bought cranberry sauce or choose one from our collection of easy cranberry sauce recipes.  Use whatever leftover turkey gravy you have on hand or opt for this super-flavorful Turkey Gravy. If you're not a fan of any of the ingredients we call for in this recipe, just leave them off. The beauty of this Po'boy is its ability to be packed with whatever delicious ingredients you're craving.
