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! Mmm.

Besides freshly baked bread, real cheese sliced from the block that actually melts into the meat really blends the flavors together.
The flavor of this soft provolone cheese over the freshly boiled cranberries is just divine; the perfect amount of sweet to salty! And, what better way to use up the upcoming Thanksgiving leftovers of cranberry and turkey than to combine them in between melted cheese and perfectly grilled bread? Yummo.
