Who doesn't love a good grilled cheese? Take your Thanksgiving turkey sandwich to another level by grilling it with this easy recipe.
6 ozs leftover Turkey - thinly sliced or shredded
8 slices of brie, white cheddar, gruyere or other cheese
1/2 cup leftover cranberry sauce
2 tbsps dijon or whole grain mustard
4 slices sourdough or other artisan bread - sliced
optional ingredients - fresh arugula, or thinly sliced apple or pear sautéed and softened in a bit of butter, or 2-3 slices crispy bacon
- Spread mustard on one side of each slice of bread.
- On two slices of bread layer the turkey (if using bacon or apple layer next) followed by the cheese - place on a sheet pan. If you prefer your cranberry sauce heated then top the turkey slice with cranberry sauce.
- Place the other two slices on the sheet pan and place pan in the middle of the oven on broil for 3-5 minutes until cheese is melted. (If you prefer you can toast your sandwich in a skillet with some butter.)
- Remove from oven and top the cheese with cranberry sauce if needed and some fresh arugula if using and the top piece of toasted bread. Cut and serve.
