Mozzarellissima Turkey Melts


  • 8 thick-cut bread slices 
  • 2 tbsp olive oil 
  • ½ cup mayonnaise 
  • 1 ½ tbsp pesto 
  • 2 ½ cups leftover turkey, sliced 
  • 1 ½ cups shredded Saputo Mozzarellissima cheese
  • ¼ cup cranberry sauce 
  • 2 cups packed greens 
  • 1 ½ cups warm leftover gravy, for dipping 
  • Sea salt and cracked black pepper 
  • 2 packages Saputo Halloumi Cheese Fries (for added deliciousness) 


  1. Preheat oven to 425°F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper. 
  2. Drizzle the bread on all sides with a bit of olive oil and, working in batches as necessary, toast in a skillet over medium-heat until golden on both sides. In a small bowl, combine the mayo and pesto, and mix well. 
  3. Spoon a generous portion of the pesto mayo on 4 slices of bread. Divide your shredded turkey over each slice of bread, then top with a heap of Saputo Mozzarellissima cheese. Arrange on the prepared baking sheet, then transfer to the oven and bake until golden, melted, and perfect, about 7 - 9 minutes.  
  4. Top each melt with a spoonful of cranberry sauce, a handheld of your favourite greens, then a second slice of bread with more pesto mayo. Serve each sandwich with a generous portion of Saputo Halloumi Cheese Fries. Delicious!
