This is from an old Betty Crocker holiday cookbook that I have, dated 1996. It's delicious and a nice change of pace as far as sandwiches go. I was unable to find cranberry-orange sauce so I used whole berry cranberry sauce instead. I also just use turkey lunch meat.
- 4 slices colby or 4 slices monterey jack cheese or 4 slices cheddar cheese
- 1⁄2 cup cranberry-orange sauce or 1⁄2 cup relish
- 12 ounces thinly sliced cooked turkey
- 8 slices firm-textured wheat or 8 slices rye bread
- 2 tablespoons margarine or 2 tablespoons butter
- Layer cheese, sauce and turkey on 4 slices of bread. Top with remaining bread. Spread top slices of bread with half of the butter.
- Place sandwiches, butter sides down, in 10-inch skillet. Spread top slices of bread with remaining butter. Cook uncovered over medium heat about 5 minutes or until golden brown. Turn and cook other sides about 2 minutes or until golden brown and cheese is melted.
Absolutely delicious! Definitely a keeper. I used pepper Jack cheese, deli turkey slices, cracked wheat bread and because the grocery didn't have cran/orange relish, I found Way Too Easy Cranberry/Orange Relish to whip up the night before (highly recommended) and these sammies were a huge hit! The cranberry is sweet, the burst of flavor from the orange is refreshing and then the pepper Jack added some heat. DH & DD (3) ate their sammies without cheese (allergies) but both "gobbled" them down in a hurry anyway! Thanks for sharing this recipe, KeeperAtHome! Made & enjoyed for Spring 2010 Pick A Chef.
