In amongst all of the Thanksgiving roast turkey dinner leftovers and turkey sandwiches with cranberry sauce last week I tried something new. I had a bunch of leftover cranberry chutney and I was wondering what to do with it. One of the first things that I thought of was the baked brie with cranberry sauce that I had tried a while ago and really enjoyed. I then thought that it would also work well in sandwich form. You can't really go wrong with a sandwich that starts with lots of ooey gooey melted brie and I already knew that the cranberry chutney would go well with all of the melted cheese. Since I also still had some leftover roast turkey I could not see why I shouldn't add some to the sandwich while I was at it. So I ended up with a grilled turkey and brie sandwich with cranberry chutney and it turned out great! The melted brie and sweet and tangy cranberry chutney along with the turkey was a great flavour combo and the slightly crisp buttery bread that wrapped it all up was the perfect finish. I can't wait for some more leftover turkey and cranberry sauce to make this sandwich again.
