This one is another winner from the Simple & Delicious Cookbook. I've lost count of how many that makes! All of the recipes are quick, almost always made from ingredients I have on hand, and, like the name says, are delicious.
We eat a late dinner on weekends, so I'm always looking for a filling-but-not-too-filling lunch. This sandwich seemed perfect for that. I used slices of leftover roasted turkey. I don't eat mayo, so I substituted some Greek yogurt with the basil mixed in.
I loved the salty bacon, the tart apple, balanced with the creamy topping. I think it would make a great panini as well, I'd put the cheese closest to the bread and throw it on the press until it melted. Thank you so much to Rachel B for sharing the recipe!
