Best Ever Cranberry, Cream Cheese, & Turkey Leftovers Sandwich
Many, many years ago I was introduced to a turkey, cranberry, cream cheese croissant at the European Café in Yakima. Sadly, once I discovered this fantastic restaurant and exquisite sandwich, they closed their doors.
Many years ago, we adopted our own version for Thanksgiving night leftover turkey. True, the main dish at the big meal was delicious. But the leftovers smashed with cream cheese and cranberry sauce on a croissant was what we anticipated. That, and Christmas morning turkey quiche.
This year, welcome to the new version of our favorite sandwich. Healthier? Definitely. But that was really not the motivation. We just did not have croissants. We love the new and improved model. And no worrying about rushing to get the big croissants from Costco.
Already thinking about when I am going to cook the next turkey breast. For leftovers, of course.

1. Toast the bread.
2. Spread a thick layer of cream cheese on one slice of toast.

4. Shred turkey and add as much as you like.
5. Cut in half. Devour.
Plot for the next meal.
