Cran-apple Turkey Grilled Cheese
There is only one photo for this recipe. I thought the photo pretty much spoke for itself. This is a great way to use up leftover cranberry sauce (homemade or from a can, it doesn't matter). And of course it also includes my life motto, "everything is better with an egg on top!" Only, technically, it isn't on top and is instead nestled into this delicious grilled cheese.
1 small apple, peeled, cored and thinly sliced
10 slices deli turkey
2 eggs, cooked over-medium
4 Tbs. cranberry sauce
2 Tbs. Miracle Whip, light
2 tsp. yellow mustard
2 sandwich style slices of Muenster cheese
4 slices Potato bread (or any other style bread)
Spray butter (Parkay)
Heat a large skillet to medium low heat. Lay out the bread and spray one side of each slice with the butter spray. Place two slices of the bread butter side down on the skillet. In a small bowl, mix the mustard and Miracle whip together, divide in half and spread on top of the bread. Place the Muenster cheese slice on top. Lay out half of the apple on once slice, and the other half of the apple slices on the other piece of bread. Top with five slices of deli turkey on each. Add the eggs. Spread the cranberry sauce on the top slices of bread and place cranberry side down (obviously). Using a spatula, flip the sandwiches over to get golden brown on the other side. If the cheese is having a hard time melting, Place a pot lid on top so that it makes the head hover over the sandwiches. Once the other side is a golden brown, remove from the head and let cool slightly before cutting in half.
