Roasted Turkey Sandwich
Take two slices of whole wheat bread, and spread your mayonnaise on one piece. Take some roasted turkey and place it on top. Then add a slice of smoked gouda cheese, 2 cooked slices of bacon, lettuce and tomato. Close the sandwich and cut it in half.
Take a flour tortilla, and slather it with the cranberry mayo. Then stick in some slices of roasted turkey, arugula, and Jarlsberg cheese. Add on a few slices of tomatoes and some lettuce as well.
