Fast and Easy Turkey Melt Recipe

A Different Kind of Turkey Melt

Although it may not be considered typical comfort food, there is something nostalgic about the turkey sandwich, in particular the turkey melt. My grandmother used to make them for me as a child and today I use her technique to create the ultimate turkey melt. Instead of cooking the sandwich like a grilled cheese, the bread is broiled so the outside is still soft, but the inside is toasted crisp. The turkey is wrapped around a pile of grated cheese and cooked until hot in a skillet. The resulting sandwich is pure gastronomic bliss! Get the recipe now.

Easy Turkey Melt Recipe

Ingredients

  1. 1 teaspoon olive oil
  2. 6 slices of deli turkey
  3. 1/2 cup grated cheese (parmesan, cheddar, provolone, gruyere, etc.)
  4. 3 tomato slices
  5. Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  6. 1 small sourdough roll, sliced in half
  7. Mustard, for spreading
  8. Basil mayonnaise, for spreading
  9. 1 small handful of mixed greens

Directions

  1. In a small skillet, heat the olive oil over medium low heat.
  2. Place 3 slices of turkey, one on top of the other on a work surface. Mound the grated cheese on top of the turkey. Cover with the remaining 3 slices of turkey. Make sure that the cheese is enveloped in turkey.
  3. Place the turkey and cheese packet in the skillet. Add the tomato slices. Cook for 5 minutes, flip the turkey packet and tomatoes, and cook for 5 more minutes. The turkey should be slightly browned and crisp and the cheese should be totally melted.
  4. While the turkey cooks, broil the bread so that it is toasted on one side only. Spread the top side of the roll with mustard. Spread the bottom side of the roll with basil mayonnaise.
  5. To assemble the sandwich, place a small handful of mixed greens on top of the basil mayonnaise. Top with the cooked tomatoes and the hot turkey cheese packet. Cover with the remaining half of the roll and enjoy immediately.

Serves 1.
