Epic CranTurkey Sandwich – A perfect blend of tangy cranberry sauce, leftover Thanksgiving turkey, sweet caramelized onion, spicy stone ground mustard, creamy goat cheese and fresh arugula. All on your favorite whole grain bread or roll.
Thanksgiving is probably my favorite holiday. It’s all about food, friends and family gathering together, and being grateful. I also love the food – mashed potatoes, pumpkin pie, fall salad – it’s all so good.
Waking up the day after Thanksgiving with a fridge full of delicious food is the best. I love reproducing another Thanksgiving meal out of all those leftovers, but I also like the challenge of creating new meals with the yummy spread of leftovers. Thus the Epic CranTurkey Sandwich was born. It’s quick, flavorful and uses up those Thanksgiving leftovers!
This Epic CranTurkey Sandwich is super simple to make…
All you have to do is layer the ingredients on your bread of choice. I usually layer it with the cranberry sauce and stone ground mustard, then turkey, caramelized onions, goat cheese, sage leaves and lastly, arugula leaves. My mouth is watering just thinking about it…
