Turkey, Cranberry, and Brie Sandwich

With this sandwich, Thanksgiving doesn’t just have to happen once a year. In just a few minutes, you can enjoy a taste of those Thanksgiving flavors whether it’s November or July. Who are we to judge?

For the photo shoot, we used Trader Joe’s Whole Grain and Flax bread. Its hearty taste and texture was toothsome enough to hold its own against the other ingredients. But, it is a little higher in calories than other whole grain breads (130 calories vs 90 calories), so if you’re counting calories, you may want to consider enjoying the sandwich tartine/open-faced style and using only one slice instead of two.


Total Time: 17 min.

Prep Time: 10 min.

Cooking Time: 7 min.


2 slices sprouted whole grain bread

½ oz. brie cheese, thinly sliced

2 oz. sliced roasted turkey breast

1 Tbsp cranberry sauce, no sugar added

½ tsp. finely chopped fresh thyme

½ tsp. olive oil


1. Top one slice of bread with cheese, turkey, cranberry sauce, thyme, and second slice of bread. Set aside.

2. Heat oil in medium nonstick skillet over medium high heat.

3. Add sandwich; cook for 2 to 3 minutes, or until golden brown. Flip, cook for 3 to 4 more minutes or until cheese has melted.

Tip: Sandwich can be grilled without oil in a counter-top two-sided grill or panini maker.
