The bounties of Thanksgiving are endless—some of us count down the days to have turkey and gravy, while others are excited for the cranberry sauce and mashed potatoes. However, it can be argued that the real star of this food-centric holiday is the delectable leftovers sandwich. This year Pret A Manger will be bringing its iconic Holiday Lunch sandwich (better known as the Christmas Lunch in the U.K.) to its U.S. shops.

Starting this week November 10, Pret fans will be able to enjoy the classic flavors of Thanksgiving every day throughout the entire holiday season with Pret’s Holiday Lunch sandwich. Featuring only the freshest and finest ingredients, Pret is excited to bring this U.K. staple across the pond. This hearty sandwich pays homage to the traditional flavors of the holidays with roasted turkey breast (antibiotic-free), a pork sausage, pancetta and apricot stuffing, tangy cranberry sauce, crispy onions, and fresh spinach nestled in nine-grain bread.

Pret will also be bringing back their oven-cooked Holiday Turkey Dinner Hot Wrap. With a taste reminiscent of a home-cooked Thanksgiving meal, this comforting and delicious recipe features roasted turkey breast (antibiotic-free), roasted butternut squash, pork sausage, pancetta and apricot stuffing, crispy onions, and cranberry sauce freshly baked in a flour tortilla wrap.

These Holiday options have a following in the U.K. that is similar to that of the Pumpkin Spice Latte in the US. With Americans’ growing affinity for international flavors coupled with Pret’s continued expansion and consumer appeal, these holiday offerings will give you a taste of home for the entire season.
