Turkey Grilled Cheese with Cranberry Brie

Happy Thanksgiving! On a regular day, this would be just another dinner recipe post. However, you most likely have already had your meal, so here is a recipe that I think looks really good, is easy, and uses your leftovers. Gobble, gobble!

Turkey Grilled Cheese with Cranberry Brie

Turkey Grilled Cheese with Cranberry and Brie Cheese

Because it uses leftover turkey and cranberry sauce, this sandwich is very easy to make and only takes minutes to go from skillet to taste buds.

INGREDIENTS
2 slices of thick cut bread
1 tablespoon butter, softened
3-4 ounces leftover Thanksgiving turkey
1-2 tablespoons leftover Easy Homemade Cranberry Sauce (or your favorite canned sauce)
2-3 ounces Brie cheese, rind removed

INSTRUCTIONS

  • Heat a skillet over medium heat. While the skillet is heating up, slice the cheese, butter the bread evenly all over, and have the turkey and cranberry sauce handy, because this will move quickly.
  • Once the skillet is sufficiently heated, place one slice of bread buttered side down in the hot skillet. Listen to the beautiful sound of that sizzle, but not for too long, or else your bread will burn and that will be sad.
  • Top the bread slice with a couple slices of turkey and salt it as needed, then spoon on a tablespoon or two of cranberry sauce, and top that with the brie cheese. I use about 2-3 ounces of cheese per sandwich, but this is not rocket science folks, so use what looks good to you.
  • Top the cheese with the other slice of bread, buttered side up, and then lift up the sandwich just a bit to see how the toasting is coming along. Once you’ve built the sandwich, the bottom slice of bread should be nicely toasted, but I like to check before flipping it over just in case I was moving at lightning speed for a change 😉
  • When the bottom slice of bread is toasted to your liking, carefully flip it over to toast the top side of bread. It only takes about a minute to get nicely toasted. This will also warm the inside ingredients of the sandwich and melt the cheese nicely. You’ll be able to see the cheese melting while you are toasting the bread. When the sandwich is toasted to your liking on both sides and the cheese is nice and melty, remove it from the skillet to a cutting board. Cut in half and enjoy!
