Smoked Turkey and Cranberry-Orange Sandwich


The first time I served the Smoked Turkey and Cranberry-Orange Sandwiches
was at a fundraiser afternoon tea here in Berea,
where we served 140 guests and volunteers. 
 The sandwich filling was a hit then, and is perfect for a Christmas Afternoon Tea.
Mary took this basic recipe and made her own version by adding
arugula and Craisins for color.  She made wheat bread triangle sandwiches and pinwheels.
We served both! 

Smoked Turkey and Cranberry-Orange Sandwiches
½ cup prepared whole cranberry sauce
½ cup mayonnaise
½ teaspoon freshly grated orange zest
½ pound thinly slices deli smoked turkey
20 slices good quality, dense bread
In a small bowl, combine whole cranberry sauce, mayonnaise and freshly grated orange zest. Cover and refrigerate mixture at least one hour for flavors to blend.
Spread mixture on bread slices. Top 10 slices of bread with sliced turkey and cover with remaining bread slices to assemble. Use a sharp serrated knife to remove the bread crusts and cut sandwich into desired shapes.

That's similar to a recipe I've used for years...and they are so good! Surprisingly good on onion rye...Yum! Good for this season, aren't they?

Oh, My!! Chris just mentioned it's about time to smoke a turkey, and my mind immediately went to the wonderful cranberry mayo we have about this time every year, but I've never added the orange.

Your party's just gettin' better and BETTER!
