Turkey Sandwiches with Cranberry & Goat Cheese Spread or Apples

What to do with all that Turkey! True you can always make a sandwich but you don’t have to settle for just any ordinary sandwich. Make it with a cranberry and Goat cheese spread.

Serves 4
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Total Time: 10 minutes


  • 2 ounces cream cheese
  • 2 ounces goat cheese
  • 2 tablespoons dried cranberries
  • 2 tablespoons chopped pecan
  • 8 slices whole wheat berry bread or any bread will do
  • 8 slices turkey
  • optional: Romaine lettuce leaves
  • optional: Add cranberry jelly or relish to sandwich to give more flavor and this also keeps the sandwich more moist


    Mix together the cream cheese and goat cheese. Add dried cranberries and chopped pecans. Place 2 or 3 Romaine lettuce leaves on 4 slices of whole-wheat berry bread, top each with several slices turkey. Spread the cream cheese mixture on remaining 4 slices of bread and top the sandwiches, slice in half and serve.

    Turkey Sandwich with Apples and Apple Butter

    Serves 4
    Prep Time: 10 minutes
    Total Time: 10 minutes


  • 8 slices Rye bread
  • 4 thick slices Swiss cheese
  • 1 large apple, cored and sliced
  • 8 slices turkey- or as much as you want to add
  • 1/2 cup apple butter


    Spread the apple butter on one side of each slice of bread. Top 4 slices with apples, Swiss cheese and turkey. Top with remaining bread slices and serve.

    Terri's Tips:

  • I recommend a tart apple like Granny Smith
  • You can always add lettuce
  • Use your favorite cheese
  • Heat the sandwich under the broiler to melt the cheese
