Just thinking about Thanksgiving food is enough to make anyone hungry. Then there are the leftovers, which defy the odds and taste just as good the next day.
We all know that putting a sandwich made with turkey, stuffing and cranberry leftovers in the fridge at work can be risky, though. Just ask Ross from "Friends." He never got to eat his sandwich, and it was the only good thing going on in his life.
This year, don't wait for the day after Thanksgiving to indulge in a Thanksgiving sandwich (and don't risk losing your lunch to a hungry fiend). Instead, take advantage of these Philly restaurants' Thanksgiving sandwiches.
If there's ever a time to eat too much turkey and stuffing, it's November.
Here's an excuse to go to Reading Terminal Market. The sandwich, a Philly favorite, is made with turkey, homestyle stuffing and cranberry sauce.

This triple-decker sandwich is only available until Thanksgiving. It's made with two turkey patties, with a third patty made of homemade stuffing. On top are cranberry chutney, smashed yams and gravy.
In case the sandwich isn't decadent enough, pair it with fries and the Drunken Pumpkin -- a boozy milkshake with vanilla ice cream, pumpkin pie filling and vodka.
Price: $12 with fries
