These cranberry brie grilled cheese sandwiches are the perfect way to use up Thanksgiving leftovers!


  • 8 slices sourdough or crusty bread
  • 1/4 cup cranberry sauce
  • 1/2 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 4 ounces brie cheese, thinly sliced
  • 2 Tablespoons unsalted butter, softened to room temperature
  • (optional) ½ teaspoon flakey sea salt



Additions and Substitutions. Swap the cranberry sauce for sliced apples or pears, apple butter, or a bit of whole grain mustard. Add leftover turkey, crispy bacon, or prosciutto for some extra protein. Add fresh arugula, kale, or spinach if you’d like some greens. Use white cheddar, goat cheese, gruyere, or havarti in place of some or all of the cheeses here. Use flour tortillas or leftover rolls in place of sliced bread if you like.
