Here's where to find 10 Thanksgiving sandwiches in Philly

No need to wait for the day after the holiday to indulge

Sandwiches Thanksgiving
Carroll - Turkey Sandwich from The Original Turkey at Reading Terminal Market Thom Carroll/PhillyVoice

The Stuffin' Cranberry sandwich at The Original Turkey in Reading Terminal Market.

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.

The Original Turkey: Stuffin' Cranberry

Here's an excuse to go to Reading Terminal Market. The sandwich, a Philly favorite, is made with turkey, homestyle stuffing and cranberry sauce.

Price: $9.50
Located in Reading Terminal Market

Craftsman Row Saloon: The Gobbler

The Gobbler sandwich at Craftsman Row Saloon.

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.

Nick’s Bar & Grille: Thanksgiving All Year Long

Sure, Nick's is known for its roast beef sandwiches but, in the spirit of Thanksgiving, switch things up next time you stop in. Opt for the sandwich made with house-baked turkey, stuffing, gravy and cranberry sauce.
