Can be made in a frying pan or grill (the George Foreman type) I found this recipe on the net, changed it a bit and at the moment it is an addiction! I like it brushed with the olive oil but my preference is to use mayonnaise and use this method now all the time ever since I made Dawnab's Grilled Cheese, Diner Style
- 1 cup mayonnaise
- 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
- 1⁄3 cup chopped fresh herb (parsley, basil or chives)
- 12 slices smoked turkey breast (or ham)
- 8 slices swiss cheese
- 16 slices bacon, crisply cooked
- 8 slices tomatoes
- 8 slices sourdough bread or 8 slices bread, of your own choice
- 3 tablespoons olive oil (to brush onto the bread) or 3 tablespoons mayonnaise (to brush onto the bread)
- Combine the mayonnaise, mustard and herbs, set aside.
- Place 3 turkey slices, 2 cheese slices, 4 bacon slices and 2 tomato slices on half of the bread slices.
- Spread remaining bread slices with the mayonnaise mixture, place, mayo sides down, on top of the tomato.
- Spread the outsides of sandwiches with the olive oil or mayonnaise, on the top slice spread it just before you turn it over.
- Brown in a non-stick frying pan on medium heat, pushing down with a spatula, until browned on both sides.
Can you say YUMMY? I made a half recipe, but only used a quarter of the mayonnaise, mustard, and herb mixture which was plenty. I used fresh chives for the herbs, didn't measure, and wished I had used at least as much as was called for. I did spread mayonnaise on the outside before frying. This was a quick and delicious weeknight dinner for DH and I. Thanks Pets. I didn't know you but am honored to have made one of your recipes.
Yum! I didn't use quite as much as the ingredients stated, because my bread slices weren't very big. I used sourdough bread, brushed the outsides with olive oil, and inside the sandwich I layered 2 slices of turkey, 2 slices of shortcut bacon, and 3 slices of tomato, with a small slice of swiss cheese between each layer. The herbed mayo was fantastic (I couldn't decide which herb to use, so I used a combination of fresh basil, fresh parsley, and fresh chives!). Made in memory of Pet'R'Us.
We used ham in place of the turkey breast and left off the Dijon mustard. Fantastic sandwich Pets! Thanks for sharing it! Mike
