Turkey, Melted Brie and Cranberry Chutney Sandwich

A perfect after-holiday lunch. Use roast turkey or ham for this incredibly tasty sandwich.


1/4 teaspoon coarse black pepper

1/4 teaspoon salt

1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon


4 slices Italian bread, cut diagonally 1/2-inch thick

4 slices turkey breast or ham (No leftovers? This sandwich is just as good with thick slices of turkey or ham from the deli.)

8 slices Brie cheese

Cranberry Chutney:

1 tablespoon olive oil

1/3 cup shallots, finely chopped

2 cups cranberries


1/3 cup water

1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar

Honey Tips

Honey Bees Need Water

To keep their hives strong, beekeepers must place them in locations that will provide abundant nectar sources as well as water.


Heat olive oil in a medium saucepan. Add shallots. Cook 3-5 minutes. Add remaining ingredients and bring to a boil. Reduce heat. Simmer about 15 minutes until cranberries have burst and chutney thickens, stirring often. Cool. Refrigerate if not using immediately.
Place bread slices on a baking sheet under broiler until lightly toasted. Turn slices over. Place meat on bread and top each with 2 slices of Brie. Return to broiler and cook until cheese is bubbly and begins to melt, about 3-5 minutes. Watch carefully.
Remove sandwiches to a plate and top with a generous spoonful of chutney.
