Imagine a sandwich that perfectly marries the warm, succulent slices of roasted turkey with the oozy, gooey goodness of melted cheese. This exceptional turkey sandwich offers just that – a harmonious blend of flavors and textures, served hot, wrapped in the embrace of golden toasted bread.
The roasted turkey, seasoned to perfection, pairs exquisitely with the richness of cheese, while a hint of mustard and the crunch of pickled red onions elevate the sandwich from everyday fare to gourmet delight.
- 4 slices of your preferred artisanal bread
- 8 slices of roasted turkey breast, thinly sliced
- 4 slices of aged cheddar cheese (or your cheese of choice)
- 2 tbsp whole grain mustard
- 1/4 cup pickled red onions, thinly sliced
- 2 tbsp unsalted butter, for toasting
- Fresh arugula or lettuce (optional for some freshness)
- Salt and pepper, to taste
- Prepare the Bread: Lay out your bread slices on a clean surface. Evenly spread the whole grain mustard on one side of each slice.
- Layer the Delight: On two slices, stack the roasted turkey slices, followed by the pickled red onions. Place two slices of cheese atop the onions, ensuring good coverage. If you desire some freshness, tuck in a few arugula or lettuce leaves. Finish with a sprinkle of salt and pepper.
- Top and Press: Cover with the remaining slices of bread, mustard side down. Press lightly.
- Golden Toasting: In a pan over medium heat, melt the butter. Once it starts sizzling, carefully place the sandwiches in. Toast until the bottom is a golden-brown hue, then flip and repeat on the other side. The cheese should be enticingly melted.
- Serve and Savor: Once toasted to perfection, transfer to a cutting board. Slice diagonally and serve immediately.
