I don’t know why it took me so long but this is the year I discovered the turkey leftovers sandwich. I'm already looking forward to next Thanksgiving just so I can make this sandwich over and over again for a whole week!

I’ve done many things with turkey leftovers but because I usually try to avoid bread it never occurs to me to eat a turkey sandwich. But after making this recipe, I don’t think I’ll ever go back!

It could be because of the crusty bread. I won’t lie – I went to a great bakery and found the crustiest sourdough bread. I wanted it to photograph well, but I never imagined how deliciously important this single ingredient is.

You really don’t need many ingredients to make this sandwich. Of course you do need the crusty bread plus leftover cranberry sauce, mayo, onion and arugula. But truly the secret sauce of this sandwich is triple cream brie cheese.

If you let the cheese sit out at room temperature it is already super creamy. But slather it on to the warm toasted bread and it literally melts.

Now it’s time to assemble. I provide instructions below but you can do this any way you want.

Whatever you do, be sure to take a picture of it because it will be beautiful and you'll want to remember it!

Can’t wait to try this, I didn’t have any leftover turkey, I was a guest not the host.
Might have to buy a small turkey breast!
