    wildeyeris's Note:

    Yummy sandwich. I see this sandwich in a lot of restaurants in my hometown in Alaska, but I rarely see it in the lower 48. Sandwiches can be cut into 4 squares to serve at parties or brunches.

    • 1 lb sliced turkey breast
    • mayonnaise


    1. 1

      Spread inside of bread with thousand island dressing.

      This was delicious! I added pickles to it and pressed it like a panini. It was a good companion for soup. I think I'll look for a way to reduce the calories though.

      This was really good. I must admit that I did not coat the bread in mayonnaise and used butter instead. I couldn't get past the mayo fried, but it turned out lovely with butter. I also used a press to make them more like paninis. Delish! Thanks Wildeyeris!
