Here’s How to Make the Infamous ‘Moist Maker’ Thanksgiving Sandwich from Friends

If you’re a fan of Friends, Thanksgiving leftovers are good for pretty much one thing only: a “Moist Maker.” The Monica Geller special consists of turkey, stuffing, gravy, and “an extra slice of gravy-soaked bread in the middle.” This third piece — the so-called “moist maker” — gives Ross so much satisfaction that he goes “mental” at work after the sandwich gets stolen.
