These sandwiches are absolutely AMAZING!! The combination of ingredients with a special sandwich spread helps to create a taste beyond compare. A true delicacy. Garnish with a kosher dill pickle and enjoy!

  • Heat a large skillet over medium heat. Place 4 slices of the bread into the skillet with the butter side down. On each slice of bread, layer 1/4 of the sliced turkey, then 2 slices of tomato, and top with 2 slices of Swiss cheese. Place remaining slices of bread over the top with the butter side up. When the bottoms of the sandwiches are golden brown, flip over, and cook until golden on the other side.

Tip

Aluminum foil can be used to keep food moist, cook it evenly, and make clean-up easier.

WOW! These are truly amazing!! We loved them!! They are sooo tasty. I was afraid the mustard and onions would be too much but it wasn't. I put in slightly less than 1 TBS. thyme but I think the whole amount would have been fine. Instead of doing these grilled-cheese style I assembled them right on a cookie sheet (omitting butter completely) and baked in a 400 degree oven for 11 minutes. This to me is easier plus it cuts out unecessary calories and fat. In addition to that I used half light mayo and half regular. I also used whole wheat bread. These were so good! Messy to eat but well worth it.

Unfortunately my family did not like all the red onion in the spread. Maybe without so much red onion it would be better

DELICIOUS! Made these for lunch today with leftover turkey breast. OMG these are out of this world! I just put these on plain sandwich bread and they were still amazing! The only thing that I would do differently is to cut down the Thyme a bit. These tasted like an expensive gourmet sandwich from a specialty shop. Thanks for the post I will make these again and again!

Very tasty! The only changes I made was in giving every family member their choice of cheese and "grilling" the sandwiches in the oven. Placing the buttered sandwiches on a baking sheet in a 450 oven and baking for 8 minutes per side yields perfectly golden crisp bread melted cheese and piping hot turkey and tomato. Great basic recipe! We'll try with other meats and cheeses soon.

Fantastic sandwiches! I was looking for something tasty that could be made ahead of time. So I spread one side of the bread slices with the butter and grilled until golden. I then assembled the sandwiches as directed not grilling after assembly. The result was a crisp buttery crusty sandwich with a fresh unique filling. They stayed crisp and tasty for several hours. I got rave after rave for these when I served them. I will definitely make them again. (Remember to watch the temperature of these sandwiches if you plan to serve later as the filling contains mayonnaise)

My husband and I both found the 1 Tbsp. of dried thyme to be a bit overpowering - I would suggest starting out with 1/2 Tbsp. and adjusting it from there according to your personal taste. I actually think that if I try this sandwich again I will either substitute dill for the thyme or skip the recommended spread altogether and try a honey mustard. It would also be good with some crisp bacon and avocado.

I cut this back to two servings (one each for my husband and I). I used whole wheat bread for both sandwiches and he added avocado to his. VERY good.

This sandwich is FABULOUS! I love the bold tangy flavor - and the recipe itself is very simple. A great meal for the whole family! Thanks for sharing your recipe Annie.

These were wonderful! I followed the recipe but used rye bread in lieu of french. Even my husband enjoyed them!

These have been a consistent hit with my family and friends. If you're going for a gourmet taste make sure to use a good mustard and a good artisan bread.
