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.)
