Cranberry turkey sandwich
I need to bring the Thanksgiving out in this cranberry turkey sandwich. The sliced turkey is easy but what cheese would be good on a cranberry turkey sandwich?
Swiss cheese! The flavor is perfect when melted and would complement turkey and cranberries very well. How do I get stuffing into this cranberry turkey sandwich?
Stuffing is bread, and you need bread in order to have a melt sandwich. So I need something that has herbs and would taste good on a swiss cheese cranberry turkey sandwich.
Herb mayonnaise was the answer. When I was at the store I saw an herb mayonnaise and realized that would be good for the stuffing portion of the thanksgiving essentials of this turkey melt.
- 2 slices of thick bread
- 2 slices of Swiss cheese
- 2 tablespoons cranberry sauce
- 4 slices of sliced turkey breast
- 1 tablespoon herb mayonnaise
- 1 tablespoon butter
- On one side of each slice of bread, smear a little bit of soft butter.
- On one slice of bread, spread on the non-butter side, the cranberry sauce.
- On the other slice of bread, spread the herb mayonnaise on its non-butter side.
- Next, melt the tablespoon of butter in a skillet.
- Place the butter side down of cranberry slice of bread into the skillet.
- Place a slice of swiss cheese, the turkey, another slice of cheese, and finally, top with mayo side down on the sandwich.
- Press the sandwich down and let the sandwich cook for about a minute.
- Flip the sandwich, pressing down, and cook an additional minute. Making sure the cheese is melted.
- Take off the heat and ENJOY!
You can use a panini press to make this sandwich instead of frying in butter.
