This really is The Best Turkey & Cranberry Sandwich I’ve ever had.  

The entire time I was eating it, I kept saying, oh my gosh…this is soo good.  Wow.  Over and over again.

You might think it’s just a plain boring, typical leftover turkey sandwich recipe, but it’s not.  It’s so much more than that.

First, we start with the croissant.  It’s buttery, flaky and compliments all the other ingredients nicely.

Second, we have our secret weapon when it comes to a good sandwich, cream cheese.

If cream cheese isn’t a staple in your sandwiches, it’s time to upgrade.  Creamy, smooth and what I would call the comforting flavor of cream cheese adds a lot to any sandwich and especially to The Best Turkey & Cranberry Sandwich ever!

Third, EVERYTHING, and I mean EVERYTHING rests on what cranberry sauce you use.  Use one you love.  If that means it’s canned jelly or canned whole or homemade, use it. 

For me, my all time favorite, hands down, cannot even begin to describe how good it is cranberry sauce is my Raspberry Cranberry Sauce.

The main reason is because it has Raspberries.  One of my ALL time favorite summer fruits is Raspberries.

Now before you go on thinking it’s an odd choice to mix raspberries and turkey, let’s just point out that the combination of white meat and raspberries is a well know, well documents, and well loved combination.  

So it’s only right to add them to my cranberry sauce and then to The Best Turkey & Cranberry Sandwich.

However, as I said earlier, use what you think is the best.  Canned, homemade, whole or smashed.  This is a great way to use up your leftovers and SOOOO easy.

This sandwich is a great leftover meal. It’s a great lunch or dinner or in the car road trip sandwich.

There isn’t any goopy mess falling out of your sandwich and the flavors all compliment each other so well.

I really am serious when I say this is one of my favorite sandwiches.  In fact, I love it so much, I’m eating it AGAIN today!  

Now that you know one of my favorite ways to use up leftover Turkey, tell me what some of your favorite ways are!
