Every week, I document another dish that impressed and satiated me during my food adventures around New York City

FOSTER SUNDRY, 215 Kinckerboxer Avenue (at Troutman Street), Bushwick, Brooklyn

I never rest – even on Thanksgiving. Maybe because especially on Thanksgiving there is a lot to eat. And I spent the last week trying to find some amazing dish that would be appropriate for the big day’s Dish of the Week.

In previous years, I found some great turkey burgers and turkey sandwiches. That would be the obvious thing, but this year I accidentally stumbled upon a sandwich that was crazier than I could even imagine.

I found it at a new provisions and sandwich shop in ever-changing hipster Bushwick. It’s called Foster Sundry – and if it wasn’t too late, I’d recommend pre-oredering your turkey from them.

It’s too late for that, but the Ham For the Holidays sandwich (which is a little Thanksgiving and a little Christmas) will be on the menu for at least another few weeks.

I’ve seen many sandwiches over the years that combine all the main ingredients from a turkey dinner (cranberry, stuffing, gravy, etc.). But this is the first one I discovered that also includes the dessert – in the form of pumpkin pie puree.

Ham For the Holidays at FOSTER SUNDRY

Amazingly, it works. The smooth pumpkin adds just a hint of sweetness. And it marries nicely with the brussels sprouts, cranberry, and brie cheese. The protein component is not turkey as expected, but moist and flavorful ham. It’s all griddled between potato bread and there’s enough butter to rival your actual Thanksgiving dinner.

Needless to say, it’s delicious. And it puts an interesting and welcome spin on all those iconic Thanskgiving sandwiches. Which I’m sure we will all be eating at home tomorrow afternoon. Whatever you eat, have a very happy holiday!! Price: $14
