Spread one side of each slice of bread with mustard. On 4 of the slices of bread spread half of the cheese. Next cover with half of the turkey. Season with salt and pepper. Even spread the cranberry on the turkey side of the sandwich. Top with remaining Turkey, cheese and bread. Press down slightly on each sandwich. In a lipped plate, whisk together the eggs and milk, and season with salt and pepper.
