5. Spread a thin schmear of gorgonzola cheese over each of the remaining slices and top the sandwiches with them.

Notes:

Is it ridiculous to write a recipe for a sandwich? Well, not for Tyler Kord, who has written an entire cookbook dedicated to totally creative sandwich-making (and totally creative cookbook writing as well).

I'm no Tyler Kord, but in this case, this sandwich is so amazingly delicious, and only available for your enjoyment once a year (what with this cranberry sauce being a necessary ingredient and all), I just have to share it.

Note that some gorgonzolas are more spreadable than others, and they vary in sharpness/funkiness. More spreadable makes it easier to work with on a sandwich, and I'd say you're looking for a medium-sharpness/funkiness. But whatever you get, I think you'll love it.

(And whatever you do, please use the bourbon in your cranberry sauce.)

Best. Sandwich. Ever.
