Ingredients

  • 20 thin slices of very soft French Bread
  • 1-1/2 cups cranberry sauce
  • 10 thinly sliced (about 12 oz) Muenster Cheese (have your deli slice)
  • 20 oz thinly sliced leftover turkey or rotisserie chicken
  • 3 large eggs
  • 2 cups whole milk
  • 4-6 tbsps butter
  • confectioners' sugar

Instructions

  • Spread each slice of bread with cranberry sauce, you can add as much or as little as you like. To build each sandwich, take a slice of cheese and tear it in half. Top the bread with half a cheese slice, turkey and the other half of the cheese slice. Top with another slice of bread, cranberry sauce side down.

  • In a shallow pie plate, add eggs and milk; beat the mixture with a fork until combined. Soak each sandwich in the mixture, about 30 seconds per side. (You want the bread saturated but not soggy.)

  • In a nonstick skillet, over medium heat, melt a couple Tablespoons of butter. Add a few sandwiches and cook until the bottoms are golden brown, 3-4 minutes. Flip sandwiches and cook the other sides until golden. Add more butter as needed to cook the rest of the sandwiches.

  • Dust with confectioners' sugar before serving. (Serve warm)
