It’s that season again when you start seeing fresh cranberries in the stores . I love making sandwiches with cranberry sauce, and today I decided to make one with feta cheese similar to a grilled cheese. Enjoy this fast and easy fall combination of flavors. You can make your own sauce or buy it ready made.

Select a great artisan bread.

Place the feta slices on one half of the bread and warm up in the oven, microwave or on a panini grill.

Add the cranberry sauce (cold or warm) and orange zest with second half of bread.

You may add turkey, ham, or chicken slices, red onion, greens, apples, or pears.
