Turkey and Cranberry Reuben Sandwich is my recipe of the day with  my newest blogging group  “Sunday  Funday”. We get together weekly and take turns  with hosting  themes.

We  had a quick start  and turnaround, so for my  first event (I will be doing the third Sunday) (or having  a guest host) I decided to do a theme of “That  Holiday Feeling”. I  expect most bloggers have a holiday related recipe  or three tucked away. And  wouldn’t have any pressure joining in.

Turkey and Cranberry Reuben Sandwich

For my recipe, I made a turkey reuben sandwich  with some leftover cranberry sauce tucked in. To make things copacetic with the kraut I cooked it up  with orange instead of apple or  beer. I  think the orange  brings  it  around to the turkey and cranberry. Cranberry  orange always  being a great combination. Plus it brightens the flavors.

These are  on  trimmed bolillo  rolls, or you could  use French or Italian bread. I wanted to keep the bread lighter  in  flavor so as not to crowd the other ingredients.

It’s really a tasty sandwich, so I hope you do give it a try. Especially with any  leftovers you have this year.Even with a small  turkey, I know we  will have lots left  with our very small  group.
