Bacon Turkey Subs- Taste of Home Tuesday!

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!

                            Bacon-Turkey Subs

     1/4           cup  mayonnaise (I used Greek Yogurt)
  2        tablespoons  minced fresh basil or 2 teaspoons dried basil (used the dried)
  1                     loaf (about 1 pound) French bread
     3/4         pound  sliced deli smoked turkey (used leftover roasted turkey)
  12            slices  cheddar cheese
  1              large  apple -- sliced
  12                    cooked bacon strips

In a small bowl, mix mayonnaise and basil. Cut French bread horizontally in half; spread cut surfaces with mayonnaise mixture.

Layer bottom half of bread with turkey, cheese, apple and bacon; replace top of bread. Cut into eight slices. Yield: 8 servings.

  1. Looks delicious! A great weekend lunch idea.

    1. I love Simple & Delicious for that- Weekends are busy, and it's a great lunch that doesn't take hardly any time :)

    2. I like the idea of apple on this sandwich!

    3. The tart bite of it, plus the crunch really gave the sandwich that extra "something"!

  2. The apple sounds great on this instead of veggies!
