One sandwich that's absolutely amazing is the classic Thanksgiving leftover sandwich that joins sweet-juicy cranberry with thick-hearty turkey. This sandwich is beloved by many; but why, then, is it only enjoyed in the weekend after the third Thursday in November? Isn't the combination scrumptious enough to be eaten in the warmer months, too?
Recently I put this idea to the test by throwing together a cherry compote and turkey sandwich. It has all the familiar elements of the classic, but is Summer friendly. Genius! Oh and I forget to mention: it's really good. There's nothing more to say, except make it now.
1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
6 ounces thinly sliced smoked turkey
3 ounces Brie cheese, thinly sliced
1/2 thick ends trimmed bunch watercress
8 slices multigrain bread
1/2 cup Cherry Compote
- Divide mustard, turkey, Brie, and watercress among four slices of bread.
- Top with cherry compote and remaining bread. Halve and serve.
Makes 4 sandwiches.
