Thanksgiving Leftovers Grilled Cheese

This Thanksgiving Grilled Cheese is loaded with all the holiday goodness!
Servings: 1


  • 2 slices of Sara Lee Artesano Golden Wheat Bread
  • 3 slices smoked gouda
  • 1/4 cup leftover Thanksgiving Turkey
  • 1 tbsp cranberry jam
  • 1 tsp fresh sage roughly chopped
  • 2 pats salted butter room temperature


  • Begin by mixing the fresh sage with the room temperature butter and set aside.
  • Add 1.5 slices of gouda to one slice of Sara Lee Artesano Golden Wheat Bread. Next, add the leftover thanksgiving turkey and a tbsp of cranberry jelly. Place the remaining 1.5 slices of smoked gouda on top and add the remaining piece of bread. Evenly smear the sage butter onto both exteriors of the sandwich and set aside.
  • Grill the sandwich in either a panini press or a cast iron skillet until the bread is golden brown and the smoked gouda has melted; about 5-10 minutes. Remove from heat and let sit for 1 minute before slicing in half.
