When it comes to grilled cheese I don’t think of too many new and creative ways to make them. I might get inspiration from a tv show, Pinterest or one of my foodie magazines and try something different like this recipe but, usually I fall back to plain old grilled cheese or grilled ham and cheese.
I seen this on Veronica’s blog and it looked so very scrumptious that I had to make it then and there! And yes, I read the blog at midnight and by midnight 30 I was eating a turkey grilled cheese 🙂
I didn’t have an onion on hand and I only had sharp cheddar, so I strayed from her recipe. Veronica knows I have a love for cranberries and was kind enough to send me two jars of her killer cranberry sauce (minus the pecans). I promptly added some to my sandwich. It was like a mini-Thanksgiving in my belly! In May 🙂
Here is what you’ll need:
Two slices of whole wheat or multi-grain bread
2 slices sharp cheddar cheese
butter (*or light mayonnaise)
6 slices honey roasted deli turkey
2-3 T. cranberry sauce (recipe in link above)
Butter the bread on one side put buttered side down in pan. Add a piece of cheese, turkey, cheese and cranberry sauce. Top with the other slice of bread and grill until golden brown and cheese is melted.
*Tip ~ You can use light mayonnaise instead of butter for the outside of your bread, it’s a bit less calories for those of you counting calories.
This cranberry sauce is fabulous over brie cheese with crackers too. Or you can eat it right out of the jar…just sayin’ 😉 Have a fantastic day and thanks for stopping!
