Editing my review: Seasoned Cook, I made your wonderful sandwich today for a 3rd time, but without the bacon, and adding a bit more of the turkey. My husband and I thought the sandwich still tasted great. I just thought you'd like to know. My review onNovember 27, 2009: WOW Seasoned Cook, this is on heck of a sandwich. I have never had a turkey sandwich with cranberry sauce before, and now I know what I've been missing. I wish I could give this recipe more than 5 stars, as I truly enjoyed it. When making the sandwich, I did however use, 3 slices of cooked bacon, 2 slices of provolone cheese, and I used a multi grain bread, (which I purchased at an Aldi's Grocery Store) plus I did not add the lettuce. The first time I made this sandwich, I added a bit more butter to my skillet (1/2 a tablespoon per each side when grilling the sandwich) and the second time, I just carefully buttered the outside of both slices of bread, so no need to add butter to the skillet. I grilled mine over medium heat anywhere from 2 minutes & 30 seconds, to 3 minutes per each side. I don't know what Applebee's Turkey and Cranberry Sandwich tastes like, as I don't care to eat at Applebee's, but I bet this sandwich out beats the one on their menu. Thank you Seasoned Cook for posting this recipe, and for giving me an idea what to make with the leftovers from my cooked turkey. This recipe is definitely a keeper!!!
This was one tasty sandwich (even though I made it in May, nowhere close to Thanksgiving). Better than any cranberry-turkey sandwich I've had at any restaurant (although I haven't tried the Applebee's sandwich it was based on). The cranberry/red onion combination was amazing. Look forward to to making again!
I really thought I would love this sandwich, but in my opinion I could do without the cheese and bacon. I felt it was just to much. I would also add more cranberry sauce and mayo next time. Thanks for posting!
What a terrific sandwich! Turkey and cranberry go so well together and this takes the combination to a new level! Thank you!
This was an AWESOME sandwich. As soon as I was done I wanted another one. I did use turkey bacon and leftover turkey from Thanksgiving (safely frozen until this morning). I served with Delish Sweet Potato "fries" Low Fat. Thanks for posting!
Great sandwich, although I substituted brie cheese for the provolone.
This recipe is perfect! It is really close to the Roasted Turkey Bacon Ciabatta at Applebees (which by the way is my favorite thing to order) I had to fill my pregnancy cravings at home with this recipe! Thank you so much for helping me do so! I will save this recipe and use it for a looooooooong time to come! THANK YOU!!
