About the sandwich, Geller said:
"Just a sandwich? Look, I am 30 years old, I'm about to be divorced twice and I just got evicted! That sandwich was the only good thing going on in my life!"
Although the sandwich's original recipe was never fully divulged by Geller or the production team, there is just enough description from Geller to help you make one just like it!
In the episode, Geller reveals the trick behind the yummy moist maker, a genius creation by his sister, Monica:
"My sister makes these amazing turkey sandwiches. Her secret is, she puts an extra slice of gravy-soaked bread in the middle; I call it the Moist Maker."

To prepare, you'll need:
Three slices of quality artisan bread (make it a thick slice1/2 cup turkey gravy4-6 ounces leftover turkey meat, shredded1/4 cup leftover sweet potatoes1/4 cup leftover stuffing1/4 cup leftover cranberry sauce, canned or homemade1/4 cup mixed greens, baby spinach, or green leaf lettuceButtermilk-Herb Mayonnaise:Three tablespoons mayonnaise1 tablespoon buttermilk1/2 teaspoon fresh sage, minced1/2 teaspoon fresh thyme, minced1/4 teaspoon fresh rosemary, minced1/4 teaspoon fresh chives, minced
1: Make the buttermilk-herb mayonnaise
In a small bowl, whisk together the mayonnaise and buttermilk until smooth. Add the fresh minced herbs and fold in to incorporate. Set aside.
2: Toast the bread
Next, toast your slices of bread. It should be no surprise that this sandwich has a lot of moisture. Toasting the bread will help hold it up while you eat.
3: Prepare the moist maker layer
Warm the gravy in the microwave (or on a stovetop) until steaming. Then transfer the gravy to a shallow bowl or plate with a rim. Dredge one piece of bread in the gravy on both sides and then let it continue to soak in the gravy until ready to add to the sandwich.
4: Reheat ingredients
While the moist maker layer soaks, reheat the turkey, sweet potatoes, and stuffing until steaming.
First, lay down one piece of toasted bread on a cutting board. Next, spread a layer of cranberry sauce over the bread. Top this with a generous amount of stuffing and add slices of warm turkey over the filling.
Top the turkey with the magic component — gravy-soaked bread and add a layer of warm sweet potatoes followed by more turkey. Top the turkey with a dash of parsley, fresh greens, or lettuce, and then cover everything with the final slice of toast slathered with a generous amount of the buttermilk-herb mayonnaise.
