I’m back! This season and has left me unmotivated, but I finally got my act together the other weekend and made this recipe. Having the sun out really helped – I’ve now been spoiled by shooting in natural sunlight and shooting with my lighting set up just bums me out.
Anyway, I love this turkey melt! Perfect for a lazy Sunday afternoon of football watching😄 The melty cheese, savory turkey and fresh sweet apple are a great combination. I also love the combination of the dijon mustard and honey. It’s a perfect seasonal sandwich.
You could make this as individual sandwiches, grilled cheese style, but I like to make this as a big loaf. It’s easier and could be a good party recipe if you’re having a couple people over. Dan and I just had it for lunch… and then dinner😄 We’re little piggies, so this could easily feed four. If you have leftover turkey or ham from the holidays this would be a good way to use it up. Also, you could use pear instead of apple if that’s your preference.
Mmmm, melty goodness😍😜
I think leftovers of this sandwich would still be good since the bread is hearty and wouldn’t get soggy. A quick zap in the microwave would probably do the trick. If you try it let me know how it works out!
