Fast and Easy Turkey Sandwich Recipe

One of my very first jobs was working at a little sandwich shop in Columbus, Indiana. I started working at The Big Cheese on Saturdays when I was fifteen. I think it was a significant start for me and very fitting to be working with food. Food is something that I’ve always loved and I learned how to make a great sandwich.

My affinity for sandwich making lives on today. I’ve definitely don’t make a gourmet sandwich for every lunch, but once in a while I’ll get a craving for a really good sandwich and by golly, I sure know how to make one. The Ultimate Turkey Sandwich is the perfect sandwich.I love all the different layers and toppings. That tomato basil cheese from Cabot is one that I get all summer long, and it just goes so well with everything. It adds a lot of flavor, so don’t skip it.

What bread is the best for sandwiches?

Like most things, this sandwich will be best if you go for some high quality ingredients. I really like Dave’s Killer Bread for sandwiches (it’s cut nice and thin, which I love), and if you have a garden tomato around, it’ll change everything.

What goes well with sandwiches?

If you need a little soup to go with this, try my simple cream of tomato soup on the side. It’s very easy to make and one of my favorites. And now you have a meal fit for a dinner. I’d definitely add this to your meal plan this week.

Can you see my Indiana cutting board in the picture (it’s upside down…)? I’m in love with it! You can get your state here! My cousin gave this to me for my birthday last year, and it makes me happy. Plus, I get a million compliments when I serve something on it. You probably need one too.

How many slices of turkey should I put on my sandwich?

I like to add a good amount of turkey. It’s delicious and provides protein. I usually use 4-6 slices of turkey per sandwich.
