  • 2 slices bread
  • turkey or chicken leftovers work great for this!
  • cranberry sauce
  • Stuffing (optional)
  • 1 tbsp cream cheese (softened)
  • 1 tbsp mayo
  • 1 tsp butter
  1. Spread a light coat of mayo on each slice of bread.
  2. One one side, spread the softened cream cheese. On the other side pile on some stuffing (if you're using it) and press it down.
  3. Spread cranberry sauce on top of the cream cheese. I like a lot, but you can use less if you want. Press sliced turkey or chicken onto stuffing.
  4. Assemble sandwich. Heat a frying pan over medium-low heat and melt 1/2 a teaspoon of butter in it. Place sandwich on the melted butter and butter the top half.
  5. Cook slowly until the bottom is golden brown, then flip and cook the other side until it's brown and the middle is warmed and deliciously melty.
  6. Serve hot and enjoy! :)
