Let's talk Turkey sandwiches

My favorite is surely T-day leftover on a Thomas’ English Muffin w/ mayo, & Ocean Spray cranberry sauce. For a non-November sandwich, I’ve got to say that I really love the Boar’s Head No Salt Added Turkey Breast. It has replaced Oven Gold on my shopping list for the foreseeable future.

I ask that the deli counter attendant slice it a bit thick at a #3 setting. I feel this product is the best at approximating home roasted turkey. Oh and BTW, I then add salt to the sandwich…

It’s also great for one’s hot open turkey & gravy cravings.

I did also really like the Jamaican Jerk seasoned turkey; but it seems this has been discontinued.

My favorite turkey sandwich is made at my beloved New Monmouth Diner. It is called the “Calvert” Panini. Turkey, bacon, avocado, melted cheddar cheese, and a lathering of chipotle sauce on perfectly crisp brick oven bread.

But if I am at home or ordering a cold sub, I can be picky. I can’t have cheese and mayo on the same sandwich. :nauseated_face: I do not know why. So, option 1 for me is turkey, American or Swiss, L/T/O, O/V. Option 2 would be turkey, L/T/O, mayo, O/V (I like the acidity of the vinegar and creaminess of the mayo). I’ll throw some bacon on there occasionally, but no bacon and cheese at the same time for a cold sub. Call me weird.

I’m not really a fan of mayo much at all. Circumstances must be right. Definitely on a BLT but not much else.

So I tried the aloha Turkey tonight. It honestly was good! There is a tiny bit of sweetness, much less than I expected. It is just a thin coating on the outside. You cant even see any crust,bark, rub…whatever you want to call it. It looks like a regular Turkey breast. Here is the kicker, you can actually taste the hibiscus. I swear…definitely an interesting novelty Turkey.

Please make me one while you’re at it - yum!

I also make brownies in my waffle iron. Lots of crispy end pieces.

Of course I would! I’d have you sit down with your feet up on my deck. I’d pour you a nice glass of white wine and bring you the sandwich accompanied by some of our good seasonal fruit or a few chips perhaps.

A pic I just took. Notice no major spices on the outside…

And probably because of this thread, I just heard a commercial for Boar’s Head Aloha Sunshine Turkey Breast on the radio yesterday. Usually I tune out when commercials come on, but this one I heard. LOL

Give it a shot. I liked it. In fact, I wish someone would have just let me try it and I didnt know the name of it. I think people will associate the name with tons of sweet pineapple flavor, but it is far from that. Just ask the deli person for a slice or two. They always help me out.

And it does say “sweet” and “savory” on the label. Thanks for the recommendation.

I’m in!

Thanksgiving turkey (white meat, thick slices) with lots of mayo, pepper, and sweet onion, on French bread. That’s it.

Leftover T-Day or rotisserie turkey breast, or deli-thin low sodium turkey breast. A few favorites - turkey, apple, brie panini with a smear of Dijon mustard. Fruit salad, Limon chips or red dill potato salad on the side. Turkey BLTs with avocado. Spinach or arugula instead of lettuce when I have it. Turkey, provolone, havarti, muenster, or Swiss with tomato and mayo on toasted whole wheat or ciabatta. Turkey & fig jam sandwiches.
