Open Faced Cranberry White Cheddar and Turkey Skillet Sandwich

  • This sandwich is very product specific. Have you ever seen cranberry white cheddar cheese before? Neither had I. I was at Whole Foods a week ago getting cheese for some amazing grits, and I stumbled across this.

    I thought I would get my self in the Thanksgiving mood by making a very lazy Thanksgiving-ish sandwich. The cheese is great by itself too. There is just a hint of cranberry flavor and it’s not over powering.
    Open Faced Cranberry White Cheddar and Turkey Skillet Sandwich
    I have been using my cast iron skillet a lot lately. I love that you can easily transfer it from the stove top to the oven. For that reason, I used it for this sandwich.

    Open Faced Cranberry White Cheddar and Turkey Skillet Sandwich
            makes 1
    1 piece whole wheat or whole grain bread
    Light butter
    1 thick slice cranberry white cheddar
    Sliced or shaved turkey breast
    Heat a skillet to medium heat and butter both sides of the bread. When the skillet is hot, place the bread in the skillet and get the cheese and turkey ready.
    Once the bottom of the bread is golden brown, flip it over and add the turkey, then the cheese. Place the skillet in the oven under low broil until the cheese is melty and slightly browning. Remove from oven and serve.
    The underneath side of the bread will be golden brown.
    And the sandwich will be cheesey heaven! This sandwich would also be awesome with leftover Thanksgiving turkey!
    Mmmmmm. I love lazy Thanksgiving-ish sandwiches!
