Turkey Cranberry Sandwich
- Apricot Dijon Chutney
- ¾ cup (175 mL) apricot preserves
- ½ cup (125 mL) dried cranberries, coarsely chopped
- ⅓ cup (75 mL) finely chopped red onion
- 2 tbsp (30 mL) white wine vinegar
- 2 tbsp (30 mL) Dijon Mustard Rub or 2 tsp (10 mL) Dijon mustard
- 8 slices Texas toast
- 6 oz. (175 g) brie cheese, thinly sliced
- 2 cups (500 mL) baby arugula or spinach
- 12 oz. (350 g) sliced roasted turkey breast or deli turkey
- 4 tbsp (60 mL) butter, softened and divided
For the chutney, combine the preserves, cranberries, onion, vinegar, and rub or mustard in a small microwave-safe bowl. Microwave, uncovered, on HIGH for 2–3 minutes, or until boiling. Cover the bowl and refrigerate until chilled.
- To build the sandwiches, evenly spread 2 tbsp (30 mL) of the chutney onto each toast slice. Top 4 of the toast slices with brie, arugula, and turkey. Top with the remaining toast slices, chutney-side down.
- Heat a griddle or cast iron pan over medium heat for 3 minutes. Spread ½ tbsp (7 mL) of the softened butter onto the top and bottom slices of each sandwich. Place the sandwiches into the pan and cook 2–3 minutes per side, until the bread is evenly toasted.
- Remove from the pan, slice, and serve.

Other Fruit Faves: Instead of apricot preserves, you can try orange marmalade or peach jam.
Cheesy Choices: Gouda, Gruyere, or goat cheese will work in place of the brie.
Toast Twist: We love Texas toast because it’s thick and hearty, but Brioche or any other thick-cut bread will also work.
