To make the turkey melts, spread cranberry sauce on a slice of hearty bread. I am sure you have leftover cranberry sauce too. We are putting all of the leftovers to good use! Top with leftover turkey and a slice of Arla Havarti cheese. I love that Arla slices the cheese for me, it makes these melts even easier. Yay!

Place on a large baking sheet and bake until the cheese is melted. Top with arugula and a sprinkle of salt and pepper. Serve warm and enjoy!
