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

sounds delicious. I think I will use mashed potato instead of cream cheese.
