Melt-in-your-mouth Cranberry Turkey Grilled Cheese Sandwich, great way to use Thanksgiving leftovers or to just doctor up a boring cheese sammy!

Every week after church I make grilled cheese sandwiches for my family. It’s an easy comfort meal and my kids and husband all eat it without complaint each week so it quickly became a Sunday tradition. I’m always trying new ways to mix up the classic grilled cheese (buttered bread with cheddar cheese in between) and adding the popular turkey and cranberry combo with provolone instead did just that!

how to make a cranberry turkey grilled cheese sandwich

Directions:

  1. Spread mayo on one side of bread.
  2. Layer cheese under turkey then top with cranberries.
  3. Grill on low to medium heat in buttered pan for 2-4 minutes per side or until golden brown and cheese is spilling out.

I think the secret to a good grilled sandwich is quality ingredients.

Besides freshly baked bread, real cheese sliced from the block that actually melts into the meat really blends the flavors together.

  6. Yum this looks amazing. I have had a bag of cranberries in my freezer for months with no idea what to do with them! Also, a tip I learned on a mayonnaise commercial – use the mayo in place of the butter when you cook the bread. It’s SO GOOD!
