Turkey Cranberry Brie Sandwich

Turkey Cranberry Brie Sandwich

With this sandwich, Thanksgiving doesn’t just have to happen once a year. In just a few minutes, you can enjoy a taste of those Thanksgiving flavors whether it’s November or July.

For this recipe, we used Trader Joe’s Whole Grain and Flax bread. Its hearty taste and texture is toothsome enough to hold its own against the other ingredients.

But it is a little higher in calories than other whole-grain breads (130 calories vs 90 calories), so if you’re counting calories, you may want to consider enjoying the sandwich tartine/open-faced style and using only one slice instead of two.
