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
pieces of whole wheat bread
healthy slices of turkey

tablespoons cranberry relish
2 to 4
tablespoons cream cheese
avocado (preferably Hass)
vegetable sprouts and/or lettuce (optional)

- 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.
