  1. Spray cold grate of outdoor gas grill with cooking spray. Prepare grill for medium indirect heat.
  2. Remove turkey from package. Dry with paper towels. Discard gravy packet or refrigerate for another use (within 2 - 3 days). Lift string netting and shift position on roast for easier removal after cooking. Cut small slits, at least 1 inch apart, over entire surface of turkey. Insert 1 garlic slice into each slit. Brush turkey with oil.
  3. Combine cumin, salt and pepper. Sprinkle over turkey.
  4. Place turkey on grill grate over drip pan. Cover grill with lid. Grill 1 1/4 to 1-3/4 hours, or until meat thermometer reaches 170 degrees F when inserted into center of roast. Remove from grill. Let stand 10 minutes.
  5. Remove string netting. Cut half of the turkey into six 1/8-inch-thick slices. Set aside. Refrigerate unsliced turkey for another use.
  6. Cut each bread loaf lengthwise in half. Then, cut each into 3 pieces (for 6 sandwiches). Spread the bottom half of each section with 2 teaspoons mustard. Top with the sliced turkey, ham, cheese and pickles. Cover with tops of bread loaves. Press sandwiches with hands to flatten. Tightly wrap individually in aluminum foil.
  7. Place wrapped sandwiches on grill grate. Top each with heavy iron skillet or brick. Grill 3 to 5 minutes on each side, or until heated through.
  8. Serve sandwiches warm, wrapped in aluminum foil.

These were a huge hit with my family and everyone loved them! These sandwiches have made it into our regular dinner rotation. I did use my George Foreman Grill to grill the sandwiches.

This was a winner in my house! We liked the smoky hint you get from the cumin. All the components came together to be a very tasty sandwich. I loved using the grill as a Panini press. I used...

I assumed the boneless turkey breast would be one piece, but mine was three pieces of meat, each a different size (which I didn't like) which meant each had to come off of the grill at different...

I gave this recipe only 4 stars because I had to substitute a few ingredients substitute for the ones I had on hand. I made my own mustard with Dijon,light mayo,and chipotle sauce with smoked ja...

This was a great tasting sandwich. I loved the combination of flavors in this sandwich. I had enough turkey leftover to add to salads the next day.
