  1. Green beans - Trim green beans. (Can be done up to 5 days ahead)


  1. Heat a wok for green beans over medium-high heat. Add cooking oil and then add green beans to heated oil. Saute for 10 to 12 minutes, until tender and browned in spots. Season with some salt and pepper.
  2. While green beans are cooking, spread butter on one side of each piece of bread. Lay out half of the bread slices buttered-side down. Top with brie (if the brie is too firm to spread with a knife, cut it into slices), then with turkey and cranberry sauce. Finish with remaining slices of bread, buttered-side up.
  3. Heat up a griddle or a skillet over medium heat. Place sandwiches onto heated surface (as many as can fit) and press down throughout the grilling process with a spatula. Flip once the first side is golden, ~ 3 to 4 minutes. Move sandwiches onto cooling rack and keep warm until you're ready to eat.
  4. When green beans are finished cooking, whisk together olive oil, lemon juice, mustard, and lemon zest. Toss with green beans and season with some salt and pepper.
  5. Serve sandwiches with green beans on the side. Enjoy!

Our whole family loved this meal! I added a salad on the side. The green beans had great flavor and we were all suprised at how much the cranberry sauce really made this dish come together!

Great, quick & easy meal! We subbed Havarti for the brie, as it was on sale and I think it was almost better than brie for this! I also used the Oscar Mayer Carving Board turkey so it was a bit thicker than regular sliced turkey. My boyfriend and I both loved it, and agreed we had never thought to put that combination together!

Great week night meal, quick and absolutely delicious! I used raspberry jam and it tasted good, but I may have to make it again with cranberry sauce.

This was a great quick work night dinner. The longest step was cutting the rind off of my brie because I kept stopping to nibble off of it. I usually dont like my foods to mix - my cranberry sauce definitely never touches my other food haha but this was so tasty that I might have to change that policy!
