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!

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.
