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.

Kevin… Great sandwich! Cranberry Chutney is my absolute favorite condiment. Thanks for the idea…
What a feast for the eyes, Kevin!!
Very seasonal & so tasty too!!
Brie is so good with cranberry!
This looks delish! I can't wait for Thanksgiving!
I had a turkey sandwich for lunch but it doesn't come close to yours, Kevin. Adding brie is perfect.
You had me at "ooey gooey melted brie"! This sandwich does indeed look extraordinary! My Thanksgiving is a month away, and now I know what I want to do with some of the leftovers. YUM!
perfect sandwich kevin!

You should re-post this the day after Thanksgiving. It's the perfect day after Thanksgiving leftover sandwich!
I've been making my own rendition of this for a few years. The only real difference with mine is that I use raspberry preserves on it instead of cranberry and I'm addicted to it! Ham and turkey both go really well with it.
