Best Turkey Sandwich EVER!

November 26, 2010

~ Mary ~


Hopefully you’ve got some extra turkey to make this sandwich.  It’s an odd combination of ingredients, but one you will remember for years to come!  The recipe comes from one of the restaurants I worked at years ago, and obviously it’s been stuck in my head ever since.





Best Turkey Sandwich EVER!


Raisin Bread – preferably thick sliced.  I made mine and will post the recipe soon.


Cranberry Mayo – combine equal parts of your preferred cranberry sauce with mayonnaise.  Straight up cranberry sauce would work too, but not too much, you don’t want to over-power the other ingredients.

Swiss Cheese Slices


Thick Cut Bacon cooked

Turkey – sliced, if you’re out chicken breast meat will do, and a s a last resort, deli sliced turkey.


Grill or panini the sandwich as you prefer.

Optional to tuck something green and leafy in after it’s been grilled.

    What a neat sandwich. I totally love to put cranberry sauce on mine. I was totally surprised by the raisin bread.

    That is one really tasty looking turkey sandwich! The cranberry sauce and mayo flavour combo is a great one!

    We make a rye bread (without caraway seeds) and add raisins, which is surprisingly tasty. I think I’ll make a loaf just to try this recipe.

    This sounds so yummy, I love the cranberry mayo! I used to go to a deli where they made cranberry ketchup for their turkey pitas…Well done!

    Oh my goodness! My husband would die for these… especially the panini version!

    Really? Homemade raisin bread? Now I have an inferiority complex. Congrats on making the top nine list, you deserve it.
    We still have three days left on our birthday KitchenAid give away. Come on over to and join the party.

    This looks like it would really hit the spot. Why (seriously – why) I didn’t think to make a killer sandwich out of my leftovers? Who knows. I am ‘borrowing’ some more leftovers from my parents today!

    OH!!!! Turkey and bacon are SO good together and I LOVE your idea of cranberry mayo! My husband will love this, too. Thank you for the inspiration. IMO -leftovers are the best part of Thanksgiving. 🙂 And happy congrats on making Top 9! Woot!

    Mmmm… looks sinful. I might even throw some avo on there, just for kicks! 😉

    This is mind boggling. Love the cranberry mayo idea. It looks beautiful too.

    Wow Mary…I have to say that looks delicious even though I don’t eat bacon! I know my husband would sure be all over that. I hope you had a nice holiday. I haven’t been around much lately…things have been hectic. Happy belated Thanksgiving!

    Saw this listed on the Foodbuzz Top 9 and bookmarked your recipe! I have turkey leftovers and have been contemplating what to make with them. So glad I found your recipe – problem solved! Thank you for sharing an awesome recipe! 🙂

    Wow, I love the idea of using raisin bread for this sandwich–looks sooo delicious! Thanks for sharing your recipe and congrats on making the Top 9! :>)

    We do almost the same sandwich but I’ve never thought of the raisin bread. Brilliant!!!!

    My first thought when I saw the picture was wondering why you put a picture of burned bread there and then I saw the first ingredient, raisin bread, and it was a light bulb moment. What an incredible idea for a sandwich like that. WOW. Thank you so much for passing this on.
