Turkey, Cranberry and Brie Grilled Cheese Sandwich

Viviana's Kitchen

Thanksgiving has come and gone, Black Friday has come to pass…sorta, we all know that shit goes on the whole weekend and shopping doesn’t die down until Februaryish (pardon my French). At any rate, you’ve probably got some Thanksgiving leftovers, am I right? And who doesn’t love them leftover turkey sandwiches?  AM I RIGHT!?

I’ve got the most delicious turkey leftover sandwich you might ever sink your teeth into to share with you all.

You’ll need:
– leftover turkey
– leftover cranberry sauce
– brie cheese
– 2 slices of bread
– your stove and a skillet
– a spatula

1. Place 1 slice of bread on your skillet (fire on) and about 1/4 inch slices of brie cheese on top (mine were about an inch wide, so I used 3 slices and lined them up lengthwise)
2. Add the cranberry sauce, try not to put it too close to the edge.
3. Add a layer of shredded turkey pieces and top off with the 2nd slice of bread.
4. Now, GRILL AWAY! Just like a normal grilled cheese sandwich. Use the spatula to add pressure (part of the reason why you don’t want your cranberry sauce too close to the edge to begin with) and flip once the bottom has become golden brown.
5.  Enjoy the most amazing grilled cheese creation you’ll ever eat. Ever.

Chicken Salad for Your Soul

Viviana's Kitchen

So I know I’ve been totally MIA from this blog for far too long and as always, I deeply apologize. I really do apologize here more than anywhere else…BUT THE PAST THE PAST and I have mouthgasmic food to share with you all so let’s get talking!

My absolute favorite thing to do with left over chicken is make chicken salad. It’s super easy and super delicious, so I thought I’d share my personal recipe with you all.

– Leftover chicken (I usually use about 2 chicken breasts worth)
– 1 small/medium Onion (I definitely accidentally used red onion and scallions last time I made it…)
– 1-2 celery stalks
– 1/4 cup pickles
– 1/4 cup dried cranberries
– Mayonnaise and sour cream to taste
– Salt, pepper, garlic powder, and onion powder to taste

1. Chop everything up into tiny pieces about 1/2 inch cubed.
2. Mix everything together.
3. Serve cold  with crackers or in a sandwich cause that shit tastes better when it’s cold.
