Hot Cranberry SPAMwich

I haven’t tried this recipe yet but it seemed appropriate for fall and a unique combination of flavors.

SPAM slices
Bread slices
Cheese slices
Jellied cranberry sauce

Toast a slice of bread on one side under broiler. Cover untoasted side with 2 slices of SPAM, slightly browned. Add prepared mustard and a slice of cheese. Broil until cheese softens, then add a slice of jellied cranberry sauce and broil until the cheese melts.
