"A play on the turkey and cranberry sandwich. This is so good and so easy; and, one of my favorite sandwiches. This is really best with real sliced cheddar - so make sure to stop by your local grocery deli. But it is so easy and really really good."

Step by Step Method

Step 1

Onions and Fruit ... In a small non-stick pan, add the butter (1/2 teaspoon) and bring to medium heat. Add the onions, apples and pears and saute until tender. Season lightly with salt and pepper. You want them tender, but still crisp.

Step 2

Sandwich ... Add a light 'slather' of the cranberry sauce (not jelly) to the bread and top with the turkey, some of the sauteed onions, apples and pears, and a slice of the cheddar cheese; and, a little cranberry slather on the top slice of bread.

Step 3

Grill ... Spread a little butter on the top and place on the griddle/grill pan buttered slice down. Then, spread the top slice with a little butter and press down. I like to cover my sandwich as it cooks with the lid of a pot. It just heats up, melts and cooks a bit quicker. And, make sure the heat is on medium - too high of heat and the sandwich will brown too quickly before it warms up and the cheese melts.

Step 4

Serve ... Just ENJOY! Some chips, pickle or sweet potato salad would be fantastic.
