Turkey Sandwich on Pretzel Roll


This is one of those cases where the fancy bread MAKES the sandwich.  The pretzel roll was dense but soft, and sweet, with a hint of buttery saltiness on the outside…so yummy.  Here’s what I used:

  • Pretzel roll
  • A blend of mayo and yellow mustard
  • A few slices of honey turkey
  • Cooper cheese (or any sharp American…cheddar might be good too!)
  • Lettuce
  • A few slices of tomato
  • Slivered red onion

You really can’t go wrong with that combo!


Turkey Bacon Guacamole Wrap

I’m still figuring out how to do wraps. Veggies on the outside?  Inside?  I want the colors to be gorgeously distributed!!

Regardless of gorgeousness, this was yummy!  You will need…

  • A tortilla or wrap
  • A couple Tablespoons of guacamole, spread across the tortilla
  • A handful of crunchy lettuce
  • Turkey cold cuts (I used one big slice and it was enough)
  • Grated cheddar
  • Two slices of bacon, torn into bits
  • Red onion slivers
  • Half a medium tomato, chopped

Throw all those things on the tortilla, wrap it up tightly, and enjoy!

Turkey or Ham Wrap with Hummus


I’m still trying to figure out the best way to fill a wrap. Lettuce on the bottom?  Meat on the bottom?  I don’t think I quite have the knack yet, but this was pretty and delicious anyway!

  • One large wheat wrap
  • 1-2 Tablespoons of hummus for spread
  • A big handful of spring greens
  • 3 slices cold cuts, ham or turkey (I used both!)
  • 3 slices of a smooth, basic cheese (I used Cooper, but mozzarella might be even better!)
  • Slivered red onion
  • About half a plum tomato, sliced or chopped

Roll all those up together and you have a yummy combination!

Turkey Strawberry Wrap


Well, my mouth is very happy right now.  To make this heavenly combination, you will need:

  • Wheat or white tortilla / wrap
  • A spoonful mayonnaise mixed with a dollop of Dijon mustard and a drizzle of honey
  • Herbed turkey cold cuts
  • Grated cheddar
  • Leaf of romaine lettuce
  • One large cut strawberry
  • Some slivers of red onion
  • A small handful of sliced almonds

P.S.  Hello, readers!  I apologize for the long hiatus.  I have a HUGE backlog of yummy sandwich creations to share with you…keep an eye out for sammichy goodness!


Turkey Wrap with Mandarin Oranges and Poppyseed Dressing


When my siblings and I were young, we used to pretend that mandarin orange slices were slugs.

Pretend I never said that.

This wrap is basically a salad (shhh), put in a tortilla on top of a couple slices of smoked turkey. It made for a yummy lunch! It would be tasty as a lettuce wrap too – just put the lettuce on the outside instead of the tortilla. To make it as shown, you will need:

1. A tortilla or wrap
2. Turkey cold cuts
3. Some romaine lettuce
4. A few mandarin orange slices (I used canned, but you could peel and segment a whole fresh mandarin orange, too)
5. Some slivers of red onion…err on the skimpy side for this
6. Some sliced almonds, if you want
7. A drizzle of poppyseed dressing

Roll it up and crunch away! Now I want to make a lettuce wrap version. But all my slugs oranges are gone…boo. 😉

Turkey Apple Panini with Cheddar and Thyme


My apologizes for the unattractive food photo…it may not look drop-dead gorgeous, but it sure tasted good! To make this yummy autumnal combo you will need:

1. Good-quality sandwich bread (actually I’d recommend some simple focaccia or ciabatta, but sandwich bread worked in a pinch!)
2. Mayonnaise and a little maple mustard, blended
3. Turkey cold cuts
4. Slices of sharp cheddar
5. A pinch of fresh thyme
6. Thinly sliced apple

Remember to butter the outside of your bread if you are going to grill it in a panini press!

Italian Panini with Pesto

IMG_0988I’m on a roll lately with my sandwich-making!  It’s the best when there are random sandwich fixings lying around the house.  It gets veeeery hard for me to simply heat up leftovers when I have bread, meat, and other tasty items that I could easily turn into a sammich!

This one is a flavor bomb.  Italian white bread slathered in pesto mayo, with turkey, mozzarella, sun-dried tomatoes, and red onion.  It’s sort of like a caprese sandwich, but with a couple of twists that make it extra flavorful.


  • White Italian bread
  • Pesto mayonnaise (in a pinch, some chopped fresh basil, garlic powder, and parmesan cheese mixed into mayonnaise will give the right flavor for this!)
  • Sliced turkey
  • Mozzarella cheese
  • Sun-dried tomatoes (or sliced regular tomato!)
  • Sliced red onion
