A nod to AllRecipes.com for
this recipe, which I have altered slightly.
I tried this for the first time about five years ago, and have made it every once in awhile since then. The important thing with this recipe is to use a hardy bread, otherwise the bread falls apart. I did not have the right kind of bread today, and worked around it, so it can be done, but. . .use a hardy bread.
2 tbsp chopped onion 1 1/2 tsp dried thyme
1/4 cup mayonnaise
2 tbsp Dijon mustard
4 slices hardy bread
3 tbsp butter, softened
1/4 pound deli sliced oven roasted turkey
tomato slices (2 to 4 per sandwich, depending on size and preference)
Swiss cheese slices (1 or 2 per sandwich, depending on preference)
