An incredible hot turkey sandwich that is a Kentucky Tradition.

Yummy!! Tried this for the first time,( which will not be the last.) Only change I made was to use garlic texas toast. I agree that it is easy to prepare, and makes a tasty lunch treat. The flavors blend so well, the dash of tabasco gives it that hint of "hot" but not over powering. Thanks for posting this.
