I recently ate at a small lunch place in Southington, CT. I ate a version of this sandwich, although they used smoked pork loin instead of turkey. Obviously, if you happen to have any leftover pork loin or even roasted ham, feel free to substitute for the turkey. I made my own version at home, and the turkey was what I used (I also used the lesser amounts).
- 2 slices cinnamon raisin bread, toasted
- 1 teaspoon unsalted butter or 1 teaspoon margarine, to taste
- 2 -4 slices cooked turkey (thick slices)
- 1⁄2 teaspoon apricot jam, to taste
- 1⁄2 teaspoon mayonnaise, to taste
- 1 -2 slice havarti cheese, thinly sliced
- 2 slices granny smith apples, thinly sliced
- 2 large lettuce leaves
- Lightly toast the bread and spread with butter to taste.
- Roll up the turkey into logs and place on one piece of bread.
- Top with cheese,apple slices, and lettuce.
- Spread apricot jam and mayo onto the other slice of bread and place on top of the other slice.
- Poke a toothpick on each side of the sandwich to hold it together, then cut through the center, on a slight diagonal.
This is a great sandwich, I really love it! It takes a twist on the traditional and sometimes boring turkey sandwiches that I end up making for myself. I didn't use apples though, just because I'm really into using locally grown fruits that are in season. But once fall comes around I'll definitely find some locally grown apples at my local farmers market and make this sandwich again using them!
I didn't have all of the ingredients but I loved it anyway! I used multi-grain oat bread, thin spread of mayo on one side, spread of apricot jam on the other, monterey jack cheese slice, macintosh apple slices and YUM! Thanks for the recipe, Heather!
Delightful sandwich, Heather. I loved the kind of crisp, punchy flavor from the apple. I used a good hickory smoked turkey and liked the combination of sweet and savory flavors. The sandwich is large, so half a sandwich with a side salad was a filling lunch. Thanks for a great recipe.
