Courtesy of the folks at Butterball. This was very tasty as a melt, but the filling would also be good as a turkey salad sandwich.
- 2 cups diced cooked turkey
- 1⁄3 cup finely chopped celery or 1⁄3 cup fennel
- 3 minced scallions
- 1⁄4 cup prepared chutney
- 1⁄2 cup regular mayonnaise or 1⁄2 cup light mayonnaise
- 4 whole wheat English muffins, split and toasted
- 1 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese or 1 cup swiss cheese
- 8 slices tomatoes (optional)
- 2 tablespoons chopped cilantro (optional)
- Combine turkey, celery, scallions, chutney, and optional cilantro. Mix in enough mayonnaise to bind. Chill until ready to use.
- Preheat broiler.
- Arrange English muffin halves on foil-lined baking sheet. Top with a slice of tomato, then the turkey mix, and finally the cheese.
- Broil a few inches from heat source for 3 or 4 minutes, until bubbly. Serve.
- Note: I suggest foil on the baking sheet to make cleanup easier. Butterball suggest 8 servings from this, but I think that's a bit optimistic. It depends on your family's appetites, of course.
Really enjoyed this with my leftover Thanksgiving turkey! I liked it best as just turkey salad, although the melt was very enjoyable. Very quick and easy to make after coming home from work. I did not include the tomato, as it isn't in season here right now and what we get have no taste! Did enjoy the fresh cilantro. Made for PRMR tag.
Very good and easy! Skipped the scallions, tomatoes and cilantro and used light mayo. I also didn't shred the swiss cheese but just laid a deli slice on each turkey salad. Easy supper! Thanks for sharing!
The flavour and texture combinations in this recipe are lovely,and made for a very tasty lunch snack.I used mango chutney,with cheddar cheese on my homemade Poppy and Sesame Seed Rolls -Bread Machine#348192.Yummy! Thanks for posting Duonyte.Made for PRMR.
