  • 1/2 c Leftover Thanksgiving turkey (or oven roasted turkey breast)
  • 1 tbsp Cranberry Jam


  • Begin by mixing the fresh sage with the room temperature butter and set aside.
  • Add 1.5 slices of Gouda to one slice of bread. Next, add the leftover Thanksgiving turkey and cranberry jelly. Place the remaining Gouda on top and cap with the remaining slice of bread. Evenly smear the sage butter onto both exteriors of the sandwich and set aside.
