Happy Thanksgiving!!!

I hope you have a special day ahead of you, filled with family, friends, thanks, and giving, and, of course, plenty of delicious food!

And when the holiday is over and you have a refrigerator full of leftovers, I hope you try this recipe for the best-ever Thanksgiving turkey sandwich!


It was definitely a winner in our house after our recent Friendsgiving celebration. Mal could not stop raving about it, especially how tasty the bread was!


This sandwich is the best-ever because it allows you relive Turkey Day with its classic flavors (turkey and cranberry sauce), but takes it up a notch by adding tangy cheddar cheese and sweet Granny Smith apple on Dave’s Organic 21 Whole Grains and Seeds Bread, which is hearty, subtly sweet, and the perfect size for a serious sandwich like one.

Combine cranberry sauce and mayo in a small bowl. (I actually doubled these ingredients to make extra for later, so I mixed them in a small Ziploc container to store in the fridge.)


Spread cranberry-mayo on one of the slices of Dave’s Killer Bread.


Then, layer the other ingredients on top before popping the whole sandwich in the toaster oven. Heat until cheese is melted and the bread is lightly browned.


Enjoy immediately!

  1. Thanksgiving leftovers are the best !! Especially if you’re hosting , you Lee so nervous about everything being all set that you can’t fully enjoy the beauty of thanksgiving food perfection , so next day leftovers are all the more satisfying !! I never thought to put apple in there ! Yum 🙂

  2. This sandwich looks really good. I am a vegetarian but I think the sandwich would still work without the turkey – at least I am going to give it a try without the turkey and see how it turns out 🙂

  3. Have you been to the deli by the water in Burlington VT? They have the exact dame sandwich (except on white bread) – it’s the best!

  4. Oh yum! I look forward to the Thanksgiving leftovers more than the actual dinner. So much work and everybody inhales it so fast, it’s nice to be able to relax and enjoy the food the next day!
