I could eat these all day everyday. So when my friends at Borden ® asked me if I’d whip up a grilled cheese with Thanksgiving leftovers, I knew right away what that grilled cheese would be. I could taste the amazing-ness before I’d grilled it up!
Because turkey plus cranberry sauce plus spicy mustard plus Pepperjack cheese is pretty much the perfect equation for an amazing Thanksgiving leftovers grilled cheese!
