Turkey Cranberry Grilled Cheese - Transform your leftovers into the easiest and most amazing post-Thanksgiving sandwich. It will be the BEST grilled cheese!

Thanksgiving leftovers have never looked so messy, so cheesy, and just so darn good.

And the best part about this is that you just need 6 ingredients for the most epic grilled cheese of your life, and the two main ingredients should be hoarded home with the rest of your leftovers.

You have your cranberry sauce, turkey, good-quality cheese (the most important ingredient of all), sourdough, Dijon mustard, and butter (no wait, I lied, this is the most important ingredient of all).

That’s it.

If you’re low on turkey, ham is also a great substitute. You can also substitute deli-meat so you can have this 365 days out of the year.
