DIRECTIONS

  • Build the sandwich by first spreading pesto on both sides of the bread.
  • Layer turkey, lettuce, tomatoes, cranberries, and cheese on to the bottom piece of bread. Add the top. Slice into 6-8 little sandwiches.
  • Serve and enjoy with your favorite sparkling wine cocktail at a luncheon. You can also Bake for a few minutes until the cheese melts and serve hot with some warm apple cider in the winter time.
  • Note1: I like to prepare fresh pesto straight from my garden the traditional way using lots of fresh basil, lemon juice, toasted pine nuts, garlic, Olive Oil, and salt/pepper.
  • Note2: When preparing the turkey, tomatoes, lettuce, and cheese, ensure the sizes fit the size of your bread. For a small baguette, they need to be fairly small.
  • Note3: Place the Cranberries directly on the Pesto. They will stick into the sandwich better this way.
  • Note 4: It is important to use good quality turkey. I prefer to roast my own after soaking in a basic brine for 24-48 hours. If you don't have the time to do this, use your favorite good quality deli cut.
