Cranberry sauce and cream cheese could change your life. Or at least your sandwiches. They made this one of the best turkey sandwiches I've ever had. I discovered it at a little general store restaurant in Story, Wyoming, a village at the base of the Big Horn Mountains. It's now our Thanksgiving Sunday tradition.
- 2 slices good tasting, firm white bread
- 2 to 3 tablespoons cream cheese (not low fat), at room temperature
- 1 whole scallion, thin sliced (optional)
- 2 to 3 tablespoons cranberry sauce (whatever you have in the house is fine)
- A generous amount of thin-sliced turkey (light or dark meat is your call)
- Dark, grainy mustard (we use Gulden's)
- 1 leaf of lettuce
1. Spread 1 slice of bread with the cream cheese. Sprinkle with scallions, then spread with the cranberry sauce. Top with turkey. Spread a generous film of mustard over the turkey. Top with the lettuce. Then spread a thin film of mayonnaise over the second slice of bread. Put the sandwich together. Cut in half or quarters, and enjoy.
