Grilled Turkey, Cheddar & Cranberry on Sourdough

Total Time
Prep 5 mins
Cook 7 mins

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. Yummm!!

Ingredients Nutrition


  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.

Comes in handy for some of that leftover cranberry sauce that I had in my freezer. Not much of a sourdough bread fan, so I used original focaccia bread and grilled it on my panini press. Made for Everyday Holiday Tag. :)
