Toasted Turkey Cranberry Arugula Sandwich Recipe

It's turkey season and this week we experimented with several different ways to make a turkey cranberry sandwich - grilled, plain, toasted, with cream cheese, with gruyere, etc. - in our what-are-we-having-for-lunch test kitchen. The winner? Hands down favorite was simple sliced turkey breast with cranberry sauce and arugula, on toast with mayo and Dijon mustard.

What's your favorite turkey sandwich?

  • 2 slices French or Italian loaf bread, lightly toasted
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons mayonnaise
  • 1/2 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • Several slices of cooked turkey breast
  • 2 Tbsp prepared cranberry sauce or cranberry relish
  • 1 handful of baby arugula leaves or watercress

    Toast 2 slices of bread. Spread mustard on one slice, mayo on the other. To the slice with mustard, add the turkey breast, then the cranberry sauce, then the arugula leaves. Top with the other slice of bread. Cut in half.
