Toasted Turkey and Bacon Sandwiches

"These are are wonderful comfort food that can be prepared for lunch or dinner with a side salad or soup...... The dressing gives this sandwich a kick and if you used sharp cheddar instead of regular it would be that much better...... I adapted this recipe from the Pillsbury 2008 Annual Recipes Cookbook"

    Absolutely delish!! Love the mixture of mayonnaise and ranch! I used Italian Bread; buttered one side of each piece of bread, put the mayo/ranch mix on the other; added sliced cheddar cheese, turkey slices, bacon and also swiss cheese. Grilled in the skillet a few mins on each side, and voila. Sandwich perfection.

    I loved this spin on grilled sandwiches. It was so delicious! The ranch dressing gives it a bit of zip. It all made for a nice decadent treat. Thanks!

    This is delicious, the ranch really gives it a nice zing. But with the cheese, mayo, bacon and ranch dressing it's a little on the greasy/heavy side. I think this would be great winter comfort food :) and I'm sure I'll be making it again!

    This is a different twist-up to the traditional grill-cheese sammy. A great one that will be a keeper in this household as grill chesse is made at least once a week. I used American white and yellow for the cheese choice. I know I'll be trying sharp or any variety of kinds as they'd all work depending on your preferences. The tangyness of the mayo-blend is what's especially unique. Thanks for posting and glad I tagged for Photo-Tag~
