Maple Peanut Butter Gobbler Sandwich

Maple Peanut Butter Gobbler Sandwich

One of my all-time favorite sandwiches is the “gobbler.” This sandwich can consist of any permutation of Thanksgiving leftovers, but my ultimate combination absolutely must include turkey, homemade whole berry cranberry sauce, and mashed sweet potatoes. To be perfectly honest, I don’t reserve the gobbler only for the day after Thanksgiving… I enjoy it throughout the year using either sliced deli turkey or poached chicken breast meat. Although my interpretation of the gobbler is real close to sandwich perfection, the unique but absolutely delicious addition of maple peanut butter seals the deal because — let’s face it — doesn’t peanut butter make everything better?

  • Yield:2 sandwiches
  • Prep Time:5 minutes
  • Cook Time:N/A
  • Total Time:5 minutes


4 slices whole wheat bread 

1/4 cup Peanut Butter & Co. Mighty Maple 

2 tbsp whole berry cranberry sauce (recipe for my homemade Cranberry-Cherry Sauce follows below) 

1/4 cup sweet potato puree (bake a medium-sized sweet potato at 400°F for 1 hour, cool, peel, and puree; then measure out 1/4 cup) 

4 slices leftover turkey breast (or 4 slices deli turkey meat or 4 slices poached chicken breast, cooled) 


For the Cranberry-Cherry Sauce:

4 cup frozen cherries 

2 cup frozen cranberries 

2 tbsp pure maple syrup 

1/4 cup dried cranberries 

1/4 cup dried cherries 

1 tbsp arrowroot powder or cornstarch 

1/4 tsp pure maple or vanilla extract 


  1. Spread each of 2 slices of bread with 2 tablespoons Peanut Butter & Co. Mighty Maple.

  2. For the Cranberry-Cherry Sauce, Combine all ingredients in a large saucepan, stirring to mix. 

  3. Place on stove over medium-high heat until the fruit begins to sizzle, about 2 minutes. 

  4. Reduce stove heat to low and simmer until fruit breaks down and sauce has thickened, about 20 minutes, stirring often. If the cranberries need a little help breaking down, gently press with the back of a spoon until they burst. 

  5. Cool to room temperature and then chill in the refrigerator until cold. 

  6. Evenly distribute the sweet potato puree and cranberry sauce between the other 2 slices of bread. 

  7. Evenly divide the turkey (or chicken) between the peanut butter-covered bread slices. Top with the sweet potato and cranberry sauce-covered bread slices.
