Turkey, Cheddar Cranberry Sandwich

Believe it or not these sandwiches are a regular in some restaurants! They’re not just for Thanksgiving leftovers any more.

However, if you have left over turkey from Thanksgiving and appreciate a good turkey sandwich with a twist – this is the sandwich for you!

This isn’t really a “recipe” per se, just a great way to use up some of the Thanksgiving leftovers!

This IS good grilled, but I also do this non-grilled on sourdough bread or a croissant with mayo and lettuce.

Turkey, Cheddar Cranberry Sandwich
  • 8 slices sourdough bread
  • 6 tablespoons cranberry sauce
  • 8 ounces cheddar cheese use less if desired (2 cups grated)
  • 8 ounces roasted turkey breast
  • 1 tablespoon softened lightly-salted butter
  1. Spread 1 1/2 tablespoons of cranberry sauce on each of 4 slices of bread. Add 2 ounces of cheddar onto each piece, followed by two ounces of roasted turkey. Be sure to mash down the cranberry sauce and the cheese.
  2. Cover each prepared bread slice and evenly butter the top of each sandwich. Place each sandwich butter side down in a frying pan over medium heat. While the first side is grilling, butter the second side of bread. Cook until golden and crusty, about 3-4 minutes. Carefully turn and cook until second side is golden, about 2-3 minutes more.
