Here we got creative and created a grilled cheese out of our holiday leftovers. Turkey is piled high on whole grain bread along with slices of Brie and topped off with tangy cranberry sauce.

We took all of those delicious holiday flavors and crammed them into one tasty grilled sandwich. In this sandwich, we used leftover holiday turkey and leftover cranberry sauce. We added creamy Brie but feel free to use what you have on hand. Grilled up, it's one yummy spin on leftovers.
