There is nothing better than a turkey sandwich after Thanksgiving. We love the flavor combination of crisp apple and nutty brie that come together in this sandwich. If you're watching the big game at home, you can prepare this quick and easy sandwich and serve them warm during half-time. Complete the meal with a flavorful, make-ahead potato salad. If you are going to the game, wrap the sandwich individually in parchment paper and add them to your picnic basket for tailgate festivities. Be sure and add other easy-to-transport options, such as graham nut clusters, to keep your friends and family satisfied.
