Turkey Sandwich with Cranberry & Gouda

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Foster Farms All Natural Sliced Turkey.

Thanksgiving is by far one of the best holidays of the year. There is nothing better than turkey, cranberries, mashed potatoes, sweet potatoes, stuffing…I’m getting hungry just thinking about it. But I hate waiting all year for it, so from time to time I will buy an entire turkey and make it with all the fixings. One thing you should know about me…I am not a great cook so making all of these dishes isn’t exactly fun and easy but the end result is so worth it.

Turkey Sandwich with Cranberry & Gouda

When I’m crunched for time but still want my 2 favorite Thanksgiving foods (turkey and cranberries), I make up some really yummy and simple sandwiches for my family. The number one rule is the sandwich has to have healthy premium lunchmeat because I want it to actually taste like Thanksgiving. I use Foster Farms new All Natural Sliced Turkey because it tastes delicious, contains no chemicals or preservatives, has lower sodium and no nitrates or nitrites. It’s not your basic turkey lunchmeat!

Making this turkey sandwich is rather simple: grab Foster Farms All Natural Sliced Turkey, your favorite cheese (I used gouda this time because my son’s been asking for it but I’ve used havarti & white cheddar in the past too), sourdough bread, a little butter, your favorite greens (I used spinach) and cranberries. You can use leftover cranberries or canned (I know that some people hate canned cranberries but I love cranberries of any kind). Butter one side of each piece of bread and lay the first one down in a heated pan, butter-side down. I like to put the cheese on first so it will melt, then cranberries, greens, turkey and then the other piece of buttered bread, butter-side up. Let it get brown on one side, flip it and wait until the other side is nice and golden brown. That’s it…that’s all there is to a Cranberry Turkey Sandwich that you can enjoy any time of year.
