I love sandwiches, but get really tired of the same ham/turkey, cheddar, lettuce, pickle, mustard sandwiches. My girlfriend, who is a teacher, is even more sick of them, I’m sure. So earlier this week I decided to make her a treat one day for lunch, and came up with this sandwich. It’s actually quite easy, the relish just involves dicing an apple and throwing some things in a food processor. Really, I had more trouble slicing the rind off the brie! (I hate brie rind. I know some people eat it, but to me… ick.)
Start by washing then putting your cranberries in your food processor and pulsing until they’re a rough chop.
Add your diced apples and some sugar, and pulse some more. You want a rough chop, but not a puree.
Then start layering your sandwich. I like the relish on one end and the lettuce on the other.
Add in your turkey and your brie. You could experiment with meats and cheeses here. I’m sure some ham and Dubliner would work well, for example.
Close it up and you’re done!
