Grilled Turkey Sammiches

There I was, innocently walking through Costco doing a little grocery shopping, when the lady behind a serving table said “would you like to try a sample?” and she handed me a chunk of thin sliced turkey.  Next thing I knew I was walking out of there with a 2 pound package of it.  I’m always trying new things.  Same old, same old is just not for me.  So after pondering a bit and grabbing a few more ingredients, I had a plan.  That night, magic unfolded at the dinner table via Grilled Turkey Sammiches!   Not to be confused with sand – wiches, a sammich is much more robust than your run of the mill sandwich.


  • 1 loaf of sliced Brownberry’s Oatnut bread — pull out 2 slices per sammich
  • 1 2lb package of thin sliced turkey
  • 1 head of romaine lettuce
  • 3 large slicing tomatoes
  • 1 lb sliced baby Swiss cheese
  • 1 jar Pesto
  • 1 stick of butter (1/4 lb), softened
  1. Butter the outsides of the bread
  2. Place the bread slices butter side down on the hot grill
  3. Toast just until you start to get stripes from the grill on each slice, taking care not to burn your bread!*
  4. Remove and prepare bread to build sandwiches
  5. Place your breads in “pairs” on a cookie sheet—toasted sides down
  6. Apply a generous amount of Pesto to each “untoasted side” of bread (at least 1T per slice)
  7. Place 3- 4 slices of Turkey on each “bottom” slice
  8. Cover the turkey with thin sliced tomato
  9. Place 3 slices of Swiss on top
  10. Set the cookie sheet on the hot grill, cover with foil until the cheese melts
  11. Remove the cookie sheet, transfer sammiches to a serving platter, arrange lettuce on each sammich and top with remaining toasted bread.

Utterly fabulous for lunch or dinner!

You can probably get 8 or more sammiches out of one loaf

*you can also just toast the bread in a frypan
