Author Notes

This sandwich combines leftover roast turkey with creamy Brie, peppery arugula, tart cranberry sauce and nutty bread. The flavours complement one another and are a perfect way to use up the last of your Thanksgiving turkey. Serve with a glass of Pinot Noir for an easy evening meal. —menumaniac

Yummy! I love anything with Brie.

Me too! As long as the Brie isn't too chlorine-y.
