here for pictures on how to make the braid). We made this tonight and it was awesome! The flavors of the turkey, craisins, and delicious swiss cheese go together so well. My hubby was a little bit leery about the craisins being in it--but declared that he wished there were even more and that it added the right amount of sweetness. And, as much as I love turkey, I was glad to be able to use up the last of it for this recipe. It was the perfect ending to our yummy Thanksgiving leftovers!
