Onion Gravy

½ (106g) onion, diced
1 tbsp (14g) butter
1 sprig (2g) rosemary
1 sprig (2g) thyme
1 tbsp (8g) all-purpose flour
¾ cup (177g) vegetable stock
1 tsp (5g) soy sauce

Cranberry Honey Mustard Spread

1 tbsp (21g) honey
5 tsps (25g) mustard
1 tbsp (15g) vinegar
2 tbsps (20g) cranberry, dried
1 tsp (5g) water

Sandwich Materials

3 (210g) vegetarian turkey burger, heated
½ cup (100g) stuffing, see our truffle stuffing recipe
3 slices (57g) American cheese
6 slices (48g) bacon, vegetarian
6 slices (168g) bread, sliced


  1. To make the onion gravy, saute the onion in butter on high heat in a saucepan.
  2. Add the thyme and rosemary and saute for another minute or so.
  3. Lower the heat to medium high heat and add the flour. The onion, herbs, and flour will come together as a paste.
  4. Stir for another minute then add the soy sauce. Stir thoroughly.
  5. Gradually mix the stock into the saucepan. Once the stock is fully added, the gravy will seem watery. Feel free to reduce to your desired consistency, but keep in mind that when the gravy cools, it will thicken more.
  6. To make the cranberry honey mustard spread, combine the ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth. Don't worry if there are a few cranberry chunks that do not blend.
  7. To assemble the sandwich, pan fry the bacon until crispy.
  8. Grill the bread with oil or butter until well toasted.
  9. Take one slice of bread and spread the cranberry honey mustard on. On another slice of bread, place a slice of American cheese on it.
  10. On top of the cheese, place the vegetarian turkey burger on top. If the burger is too thick, slice it to about 1/4" thick.
  11. Place the bacon on top of the turkey.
  12. The stuffing goes on top of the bacon, but before you layer it on, make sure you reheat the stuffing and toss with the onion gravy you made. The gravy acts like a binding, keeping the stuffing more intact in the sandwich.
  13. Place about a 1/2" layer of stuffing on top of the bacon.
  14. Finally, place the slice of bread with cranberry honey mustard spread on top of the stuffing.
  15. Slice the sandwich in half diagonally, if desired. Repeat until you've made 3 sandwiches.
  16. Serve immediately while hot.
