Tangy turkey and Swiss sandwiches

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)

Chop up the onion and add it to the thyme, mayonnaise, and mustard in a bowl; mix well.

Heat up a skillet to medium high heat. Spread butter on one side of two bread slices, and spread the mayonnaise mixture on the other side. Then, layer up your sandwich with turkey, tomato slices, and Swiss cheese.

Cook sandwich until golden brown on one side, then flip. Repeat with other sandwich.

Turkey sandwiches for lunch, upgraded.
