Holiday Turkey Sandwich

A sandwich that allows you to enjoy the flavor of the holidays all year round. 


Yields one sandwich


For the Cranberry-Cream Cheese

8 ounces cream cheese
4 ounces jellied cranberry sauce

For the sandwich

2 slices multi-grain bread
1 ounce butter or margarine
5 ounces freshly shaved turkey breast
3 ounces cranberry cream cheese
1 slice Swiss cheese
2 ounces spring mix lettuce greens
3 slices of tomato


Do Ahead:
Start by making the cranberry-cream cheese.  Slightly warm 8 ounces of cream cheese. Add 4 ounces of jellied cranberry sauce and blend completely. Once the mixture is a creamy pink paste, refrigerate immediately.  Leave in the refrigerator while preparing the rest.


Grill to desired temperature


Spread ½ ounce of butter on one side of each piece of bread. Place bread, butter side down, on grill until golden brown.

Using the grilled side of the bread as the inside of the sandwich, start by spreading the cranberry cream cheese on the grilled side of each slice of bread.  The warm bread will allow it to spread more easily and the harder grilled surface will help the bread to not break.

Build you sandwich with Swiss, turkey, tomato and lettuce.  Close the two halves.
