Finding a way to reuse holiday dinner leftovers is ideal to ensure that no food goes to waste, and this roasted turkey grilled cheese recipe by food blog Heather Christo cleverly turns several staples from a Thanksgiving meal into a delicious grilled cheese. This is a slight twist on the hot turkey sandwich that is much more contemporary and makes more use of sweeter ingredients.
The grilled cheese is made with two slices of sourdough bread that are topped with slices of roasted turkey. The meat is then covered with a thick layer of cranberry sauce and blue streaked brie cheese. The brie pairs well with sweet notes making it an ideal selection to complement the cranberry sauce. The end result is a gourmet Thanksgiving meal repurposed as a quick, comfort and delicious leftover meal.
