The Ultimate Turkey Sandwich

There was a small Bistro near where I worked as a nurse many years ago and this sandwich was on their menu. I fell in love with it at first bite. That was 30 years ago. Now I cook a turkey breast once a month, just so I can make this sandwich.
It is also a great recipe for Chicken leftovers as well!
Use your imagination with the fillings. The staple is the cream cheese, turkey and cranberry sauce. I use home made cranberry sauce rather than canned, but canned will work.

How to Make The Ultimate Turkey Sandwich

Step-by-Step

  1. Use a hearty, thick bread, croissant or bakery roll. These hold up to the amount of filling much better.
    If you want a warm sandwich toast the bread. Heat the turkey and cranberry sauce in a microwave for 1 minute 30 sec.
  2. Spread bread with Honey Nut Cream Cheese. Layer with lettuce, turkey or chicken, cranberry sauce, and other favorite ingredients. The Bistro used ground walnuts and alfalfa sprouts. One friend has used Swiss cheese, baby spinach (instead of lettuce)and ground pecans.
