Thanksgiving Leftovers: Turkey Gorgonzola Grilled Cheese Sandwich

If you’re looking for a different spin on the regular ol’ boring turkey sandwich make from Thanksgiving leftovers, consider making a Turkey Gorgonzola Grilled Cheese Sandwich with arugula! Turkey Gorgonzola Grilled Cheese Sandwich // Legal Miss SunshineI should’ve taken a photo of the sandwich pre-grilling, but it is loaded with gorgonzola cheese and piled high with arugula leaves. It is definitely different than the usual Thanksgiving leftovers. Turkey Gorgonzola Grilled Cheese Sandwich // Legal Miss SunshineTurkey Gorgonzola Grilled Cheese Sandwich // Legal Miss SunshineIf you want to make this sandwich after Thanksgiving, be sure to pin the below image or print out the recipe below. Turkey Gorgonzola Grilled Cheese Sandwich // Legal Miss SunshineTurkey Gorgonzola Grilled Cheese Sandwich // Legal Miss SunshineTurkey Gorgonzola Grilled Cheese Sandwich // Legal Miss Sunshine

Instructions
  1. Start by buttering your bread, lay one side butter-side down in a skillet.
  2. Add 2 Tbsp of gorgonzola to the bread in the skillet.
  3. Top it with 2-3 slices of turkey.
  4. Add a big handful of arugula, more than you might think.
  5. Top the arugula with additional gorgonzola (so the bread sticks to the sandwich).

  7. Grill each side until nicely browned.
  8. Garish with a toothpick of cranberries.
