Author Notes: When I was in school, there was a place that specialized in "weird " sandwiches. You could assemble whatever combination of ingredients you wanted from a long list. Since it was after Thanksgiving and there was no more turkey around, I decided to create a combo that would incorporate both the turkey and the cranberry. Then I took it one step further since I also loved cream cheese, tomato, and sprouts -- sounds weird, but layer that up and you'll be hooked. Best bagged lunch sandwich of all times!micki barzilay

Makes: 1 sandwich

  • 2 pieces of whole wheat bread
  • 4 healthy slices of turkey
  • 2 to 4 tablespoons cranberry relish
  • 2 to 4 tablespoons cream cheese
  • 1/2 avocado (preferably Hass)
  • Handful vegetable sprouts and/or lettuce (optional)
  • 4 slices of tomato (optional)
  1. Take 2 pieces of a good sliced whole wheat bread and smear cream cheese on each piece. On one of the pieces of bread, layer the cranberry, turkey, avocado, sprouts/lettuce, and tomato. Place the other piece on top of the stack. Cut the sandwich in half, wrap it in saran wrap, and place it into your brown bag for lunch.
