A Hunkering for Flavors of Thanksgiving

Yum
Oh my gosh!

I so have a hunkering for the flavors that abound at Thanksgiving!!!

I know, Thanksgiving is still a little ways away, but why wait?

What if you could have turkey and cranberry right now?

Well, here's how!

How about a Turkey Pesto Cranberry Melt?!!

All those Thanksgiving flavors in one delicious, warm bite!!!

Turkey Pesto Cranberry Melt

Here's what you need per sandwich:
2 slices of sourdough bread
3 slices of turkey meat from the deli
2 Tbsp pesto
1 Tbsp whole cranberry sauce
1/4 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
butter

On the inside of each slice of sourdough bread, spread the pesto.  Next place the turkey meat on one side.  Top the meat with the whole cranberry sauce and then the shredded cheese.  Now place put on the top slice of bread.  Fire up a panini press, fry pan or George Foreman grill.  While that is heating, butter the bread.  Place that side down first and then butter the remaining side.  Flip the sandwich after 3-4 minutes and brown the other side.  Remove and slice diagonally ( 'cuz that makes it look professional). 

Serve with some sweet potato fries and it really is like a mini Thanksgiving.

The flavors are unbelievable!  You will gobble up every single bite!!!

So if you too are having a hunkering for the flavors that come with Thanksgiving, you got to check this out!

This would also be a great way to serve up the leftover turkey the day after.

Either way, satisfy your craving!

Celebrate the little things that make life sweet!
