I adapted this recipe which was originally posted by Emily Mathews (a.k.a. Seasoned Cook) at food.com, so I cannot take credit for the recipe. I have made this sandwich several times, and I 'am hooked on it!! It's one of my "favorite" ways to make a turkey sandwich. Emily did post this about the recipe... "This sandwich is similar to the one on the menu at Applebee's Restaurant, and is absolutely delicious! Bread of your choice can be used, but it must be grilled to get the true flavor and the goodness of melted cheese."

How to Make Turkey Cranberry Sandwich


  • 1Spread mayonnaise on one side of sliced bread.
  • 2Mix red onion with the whole cranberry sauce.
  • 3Spread cranberry-onion mixture on the other slice of bread.
  • 4Layer turkey slices, bacon, and provolone cheese on one side of the bread, and top with other slice of bread.
  • 5Using a skillet or grill pan, grill sandwich with butter, then remove from heat when cheese has melted. (I grilled the sandwich over medium heat anywhere from 2 minutes & 30 seconds, to 3 minutes per each side.)
  • 6Cut sandwich into 2 halves and serve.
  • 7Note: When making this sandwich, I used a multi grain bread, (which I purchased at an Aldi's Grocery Store) plus I did not add any lettuce. (As lettuce is shown in both photos.) Also, when it came to adding butter to the skillet, I added a bit more (1/2 a tablespoon more per each side when grilling the sandwich). The second time I happened to make this sandwich, I just carefully buttered the outside of both slices of bread, so no need to add butter to the skillet.
