Grilled Sour Dough Turkey Sandwich

by zesty on November 10, 2009 · 11 comments

I made a sandwich a little while ago and for some reason I forgot to post about it.  I really did like the outcome of the sandwich but it was nothing over the top.  I remember picking up some sour dough bread at the bakery which was used for a grilled sandwich with some melted cheese oozing out the ends.

Now when it comes to sandwiches, in the last 3-4 months I have made a large change when it comes to sauces on my sandwiches.  I don’t use any now!  I know it sounds a bit bizarre for some but I really enjoy it now.  I never was a big fan of mayonnaise so I used to revert to mustard.  But lately I put that all on hold and usually have been avoiding it all together.  I now tend to focus on cheese, vegetables and even fruit.

When it comes to the filling for this sandwich… it is super basic.  We always seem to have turkey deli meat around since the kids love it and it is a good source of protein and as for cheese – I just went with old cheddar.

Ingredients

  • 2 Slices of Sour Dough Bread
  • Handful of turkey meat
  • 3 Slices of cheddar cheese
  • Black pepper

Method

  • Preheat sandwich maker or George foreman grill
  • Slice the bread and top with turkey cheese and pepper
  • Place the other piece of bread on top
  • Add sandwich to the grill and cook for 3-4 minutes until cheese has melted and bread is golden brown
  • ENJOY!

Zesty Tip: One tip when making grilled sandwiches is to make sure the filling ( meat in this case ) is fairly dry.  I find the deli meat can be quite moist and will make the bread soggy, so I tend to pat it dry with a paper towel before adding it to the sandwich.

So that is the sandwich. Nothing elaborate but a very good quick meal whether you are on the run, or just craving the crunch from a toasted sandwich.  I hope you have a great Tuesday and I am glad to see so many of you joining up for the free blogging tips newsletter over at my new consulting site.

Take care

I love making sandwiches this way, do it all the time! There have been occasions where I throw together two slices of bread, a few slices of ham or turkey, and a slice of cheese, then pop it in the microwave for a quick hot sandwich :)

thanks for the tips! I normally put veggies in it, and not dare to grill it, because I don’t want a soaky bread!
