  1. Yummy! We loved these sandwiches! The sauce for these is so tasty - my whole family (including my two smallest) gobbled these up! I did change a couple of things - didn't have any olives, so just left them out. Also, I wanted them to not be open-faced, so I put sauce on the other half of the buns, put the lids on, wrapped them in foil and baked them in the oven for 20 minutes at 375 degrees. So delish! Thanks bmcnichol!!!
  2. Now that is a turkey sandwich with a zing! Made this just for me but a sandwich this good needs to be shared - will be sure to keep some of that holiday turkey on hand to be making this again - and do some sharing. Thank you for posting - looking forward to that holiday sandwich!
  3. Love, love, love this sandwich! I cut the recipe down to 2 servings and ate them BOTH for dinner tonight. They are absolutely yummy! Thanks for sharing this great recipe, bmc!


I have two boys Eddie 18 and Brandon 10. I have been with my hubby for 16 years. I work full time outside the home and my boys keep me busy at home. Eddie is a singer and base guitar player in a band and Brandon races go karts. We also have a Collie/Beagle mix named Sugar. I love to cook and try out new recipes. My family likes it too but at times ask my to make just "normal" food, as I forget sometimes to make my own TNT recipes. I cook a lot with with my crock pot as it makes life a lot easier for me. I am always on the look out for new crock pot recipes. I'm not much of a baker as I don't like to measure things. I collect cookbooks and recipes in general. I usually start with a recipe and tweak to my families liking. My Rating System: 5 Stars = The whole family enjoyed the dish and it will be added to my TNT cookbook. Book #220911. These recipes will be made again and again. 4 Stars = Recipe was good, but needed some modifications or it was good but not something we would want on a regular basis. Also goes into my TNT-4 star recipe cookbook. Book #220912 3 Stars = It was edible, but won't be made again. 2 Stars = Needs some kind of major adjustments. 1 Stars = Inedible, didn't work, waste of ingredients.
