Amazing recipe to use up those Thanksgiving leftovers after the holiday dinner. Finger-licking-good grilled cheese made with turkey breast, smooth melted brie cheese and cranberry sauce.
Did I mention that I live in the future as a food blogger? Oh yes, I did. So while you are still trying to figure out your Thanksgiving menu, I am already eating leftovers. Oh boy, was this ever-so-good! I made it twice already this week and I can’t get enough. I better stop through, or I won’t be so excited about eating anything on Thanksgiving.
So I discovered something this week. While I was planning on making some Thanksgiving leftover recipes, I really didn’t want to buy an entire turkey and cook it just to make some leftovers. Actually, it’s been a really long time sine I’ve made an entire turkey. I am usually responsible for side dishes and dessert for Thanksgiving dinner but not the turkey. So I never even have the need to make one. Surely I didn’t want to make one just for a few leftover recipes.
While shopping for groceries, I found something that made me very excited. You may already know this, but I found single, raw turkey breasts for sale! Yes…single turkey breasts that you can cook as you like. I feel like I was living under a rock. I’ve gotten ground turkey plenty of times but never even paid attention to the turkey breast. Well that was just perfect. Exactly what I needed to give you a few ideas on what to do with your leftovers. So I hope you enjoy this one because I definitely did!
Turkey Cranberry Brie Grilled Cheese
- 2 slices of seedless Rye bread
- 3-4 slices of roasted turkey breast
- 3 oz Brie cheese rind cut off, thinly sliced
- 2 Tbsp cranberry sauce
Preheat a medium saute pan over medium heat and lightly grease it.
Place bread in the pan and separate brie slices among the two slices of bread. Let it start melting.
Layer turkey breast over one slice of bread and then cranberry sauce on top of turkey.
Cover with second slice of bread and press lightly.
Finish the grilled cheese until bread is golden and cheese is melted.
