Tangy Turkey and Swiss Sandwiches
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!

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.Read More
Interesting, but messy. I made a full recipe of the sauce without the thyme, then separated one-fourth, added the thyme to that, to try it out. The sandwich was good, but messy. I must have done something wrong. My sandwich was toasted, the cheese was melted, but the turkey was not hot. And everything slid all over the place while I was eating it. I would like to try a thinly sliced red onion instead of putting chopped onion into the dressing. Plus, I minced the onion. Seemed to me that chopped would be a challenge to spread evenly. I will try this again.Read More

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.
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!
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.
These were wonderful! I followed the recipe but used rye bread in lieu of french. Even my husband enjoyed them!
These are great sandwiches to make, quick, easy, and delicious.
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.
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.
Great way to use leftover turkey! I omitted the butter and just toasted the bread under the broiler. All I added was lettuce and bacon and these were delicious with chips and a dill pickle on the side!
delicious sandwiches. We used leftovers from the "turkey stuffed with spinach" and that upped it to a 5-star, but with regular deli turkey It would be a 4. Super easy, will add it to the family favorites
Delicious - I almost didn't try it when I saw the calories and fat content. I used less of the mayo mixture on the sandwich and sprayed the outside of the sandwich with "I Can't Believe It's Not Butter" spray. Can't wait to try the spread on another sandwich at a later time. YUM!
I could eat these sandwiches every week. I guess that means I'd have to roast a turkey every week. Hey, if that's what it takes. What I loved: the crispy bread and the melting cheese and that flavorful mayo and the ripe tomatoes and the sharp onion. This is a keeper. I'm going to try this with different cheeses, too. Brie? Havarti? Irish cheddar?
I gave this 4 stars bc I modified it slightly. I made the sauce per the recipe- it was delicious. Instead of buttering and cooking in a skillet, I wrapped each sandwich tightly in aluminum foil and baked for about 20 minutes to warm and melt the cheese. I will definitely make these again the next time I have leftover turkey.
Great sandwich! Very quick and easy dinner. Everybody loved it.

These were very good. I think next time I would use a spicier mustard than I used this time. It needed a little more kick but was very good.
These are so good! The whole family loves them. We add less mayo and use only 1 slice of cheese (plenty IMO) and that cuts down on the fat some. I use a whole small red onion instead of bothering to measure it. I used to make it using thyme, but now I add 2 heaping tsp of Trader Joes 21 Seasoning Salute instead, and I don't use any tomato. Lastly, butter one side of the bread, put it in the skillet or on griddle, butter side down, and THEN spread with onion mixture. Less messy that way!
These tasted great. Don't let the combination of ingredients throw you off. All the flavors go well together.
These are incredibly good! I have made them for lots of people always to rave reviews :)
We enjoyed these sandwiches very much. Used only half the thyme and it was just right. Also used white American cheese instead of swiss. These were worth the extra effort.
This was suprisingly good for such a simple recipe. My guests seemed to really enjoy it. I used Oatnut's 3-seed bread and used light mayo instead of regular and I only used HALF of the amount of mayo that the recipe called for. This sandwich is like something you would order from a bistro :)
This was nice for a change of pace. I only had grape tomatoes so I got creative & chopped them & added them into the mayo/mustard mix. I spooned the mixture onto the first slice of bread, topped w/turkey, swiss, & the other slice of bread. They cooked up nicely & weren't mushy or too sloppy to eat!
I totally agree with the reviewer who said this is like a gourmet sandwich! Made them for dinner this evening and they were fantastic. I've already e-mailed this recipe to several other people in my family. I was also hesitant about the 1T. of thyme so I cut it down to half a tablespoon and I think it was more than enough. Thanks for submitting Annie!
Simply Delicious! I put too much meat in so I'll go easy the next time. I may use this dressing as a dip.
Really really yummy! I made these for just my boyfriend and I, and used only 2 T. onion, and italian bread which tasted just fine. I cooked these on the georger foreman, and they grilled up nice and fast! I will make these again this week!
These are really good. I cut the amount of thyme in half, and I'm glad I did because I think that otherwise, the flavor would have been too strong. Next time, I think I'll try rubbing roasted garlic on the toasted bread. Thanks Annie!
The sauce is delicious. I have now made these using different kinds of breads and cheeses but the best we have come across is to use panini bread on a grill. FANTASTIC.
I found these sandwiches to be really good. Prepared them with Hungarian Mushroom Soup found on this site, I was admittedly nervous about the strength of the red onion being overpowering, but stuck to the measurements and found the spread to be tangy and a good match with the honey turkey I used. I used a panini press for mine and kept them in the oven at 170 while I finished the soup.
Delicious! These were a huge hit for us, and they definitely have the taste of a bistro sandwich. The sauce is exceptional -- follow the recipe to the letter, and do not cut back on the thyme. For the bread, I used English toasting bread found in most grocery store bakeries. It was perfect! This is definitely a keeper. It is excellent with any good soup.
Truly incredible! I also was afraid that the red onion (especially raw) would be too much, but this recipe is phenomenal! Two (messy) thumbs up!
One of the best sandwiches I have ever made! That spread just pulled all the flavors together and turned a regular grilled sandwich into a yummy but simple meal. I too was a bit doubtful about the 3/4 cup onion...but it is no way overpowering and simply enhances the all around flavor. Thanks Annie.
An outstanding sandwich! Even my picky husband liked it. I took the advice of other reviewers and used 1/2 the thyme. I used "real" turkey breast and put it on sourdough from Panera's. I agree that you should use a specialty bread for this. The sauce is ample for at least 8 sandwiches. I might try it on asparagus! It was SUPER! I would recommend dicing the onions as small as possible and preparing the sauce ahead of time to let the flavors mellow! A real keeper!
I really enjoyed the blend of the different ingredients.
This was very good. For a lighter version, toast the bread unbuttered, assemble the sandwiches and microwave till cheese melts. Thanks for the post.
This had a wonderful flavor from the thyme and was tangy/spicy from the onion and mustard. I used onion powder, havarti, plain white bread, and added some bacon to ours. It was different and my hubby wasn't sure at first about the flavor but in the end he liked this. I loved it from first bite!
These were great! Super easy, and delicious.
This was great with Thanksgiving turkey, and again with Christmas ham. I didn't have coarse-grain mustard, so substituted honey mustard. We think it's more than amazing!
Delicious I wouldn't change a thing.
i liked it but some people meaning family didnt at all
This was one of the best sandwhices I have had in a long time. The best part is that I made it and it is so easy to prepare and inexpensive. I was a little skeptical about all the onion. But the onion is just the right amount. I only used 1t thyme and I didn't have french rolls so I used hamburger buns. I can't wait to have this again. Thank you for sharing this recipe with us.
Very good sandwich! Taste just like a gourmet sandwich. Definite keeper!
The sandwich spread was delicious. Really sets this apart from a regular sandwich. I used miracle whip (didn't have mayo on hand)and it gave it a nice zip. Also used provolone instead of swiss. Followed advice of another reviewer and baked at 400 degrees for about 15 minutes, flipping once.
I have to agree with you Annie, this sandwich really is amazing! The only change I made was subbing the thyme for some dill. Hearty and very satisfying. Thanks for a yummy lunch!
This incredible sandwich is still settling in my stomach, as I just made it for lunch. I wanted something very fast and easy, but didn't feel like sitting down with another frozen dinner...then I came across these! I just used whatever I could find, so I ended up making the sandwich on Steak Rolls, using white onion, miracle whip, and dijon mustard along with the thyme. I also added some garlic powder to the spread, which was terrific. I didn't use any particular amounts of anything, instead just seasoning to taste. I also used provolone instead of Swiss cheese. I put the butter in my pan, as a steak roll is an odd shape to butter the outside of. I probably could have cooked it longer, my turkey was cold, but it left the tomato very fresh. This sandwich took about ten minutes to make the entire thing, and was DELICIOUS! I'll definitely make it again! :D
Very Yummy Sandwich!! My husband and I love panera so this was a sandwich just as good that we made at home! I did not have red onion so I used yellow onion and I didn't have french bread so I just used whole wheat and put in the oven just to warm it all up!
This sandwich was so YUMMY. I did try a couple of different thing with it. I used sourdough instead of french bread (because I couldnt find thin cut french bread)and I sliced avocados on top in place of the tomatoes. The tomatoes where good but when I tried it with avocado--oh my goodness. VERY GOOD!! This one is going in the recipe box!
Everyone loved these! I'll be making these again.
Terrific easy meal! Family loved it!
Yummy! I loved the chopped onion in the spread! I used an Italian seasoning instead of just thyme and that worked great! Also used ciabatta bread which was super good with this! ;)
Excellent! I made it with the low carb wheat bread by natures own, and I used left over turkey from a previous meal, and it was soo soooo Good!! I cannot wait to try it with french, or Sourdough bread, and smoked turkey. It has to be out of this world if what I actually did fix was so good!
This sandwich is mouth watering- very tasty and crunchy- LOVE IT! I would make this again for my family.
I made this today -- the day after Thanksgiving -- with leftover turkey. I used Tuscan bread and it was delicious!
These were great! My teenage daughters were watching me make these and had doubts, but after one bite they give them two big thumbs up. Only change was using fresh thyme and whatever 'Brownberry' was on hand.
This received mixed reviews from my family...I really liked it so I gave it a 4 rather than a 3. I used chicken instead of turkey because I had it on hand and thick multigrain bread. And although I thought it was very tasty, my young kids just picked out the chicken (and they are generally pretty adventurous about food) and my husband wasn't thrilled with it (but he's a meat and potatoes type so his opinion doesn't really count). I wonder if I had put the spread on just one side of the sandwich if the taste would have been more mild and therefore better received. I will make it again for myself. Thanks!
This is a delicious recipe. It's a great way to enjoy turkey left over from Thanksgiving. The recipe makes more sauce than is needed, so I either reduce it or save the extra to use later as a dipping sauce. I've found that I like it better if I decrease the amount of thyme used so the thyme doesn't overpower the other flavors.
I only made one sandwich for myself for lunch. I cut way back on the thyme using only a sprinkling. I measured everything else because I wanted to add up the total fat since it didn't seem right that this would have such a high fat content. I used 2 tsp mayo with one 1 tsp mustard. Didn't have any fancy bread so I used plaine old grocery store whole wheat bread spreading the outsides with 1/2 tsp margarine each. Used five slices of the thin deli cut turkey and only one slice of swiss cheese. This sandwich was great and after checking all my labels I got a total of 18 grams of fat, which may not be ideal but is certainly better than nearing 60!
I like a tall sandwich as much as the next person, but this was the Eiffel Tower! I followed the recipe to the letter, except for using rye bread instead of French. I tried cooking all 4 in a huge wok-sized skillet, but had to throw 2 away, for lack of room. How do you flip a sandwich that is so tall? We had to eat them with a fork. Still, it tasted good!
I made these last night and they were amazing! Didn't change a thing.
These sandwiches are AMAZING!!! I can never make enough when guests come to visit. This is a MUST HAVE recipe. One won't be enough.
These were very tasty sandwiches. I made a few modifications. I used Sourdough Bread instead of French, and used deli spicey brown mustard. I could not find mustard listed in the recipe. Definitely a reciepe I will repeat!!
This recipe was just ok. Probably would've been better with leftover turkey. But I think with some tweaking it can become a really nice turkey melt. Overall a good base.
This was OK
These are just great! Right up there with a Reuben! Highly, highly recommended.
great dressing! Just what I was looking for today.
These were really good. I cut the recipe in half, but had enough ingredients to make 4 big sandwiches. I had to even put a toothpick in them to hold them together after they were done. I cut the amount of butter in half to, to 1 1/2 tblsp., and still found it to be plenty of cooking oil for 4 sandwiches. I also tried to lighten it up some by using low-fat mayo and lite swiss cheese. For the mustard I used dijon, because it is what I prefer. This was restaurant quality, in my opinion, even with dividing the ingredients among twice the amount of sandwiches. Thank you
It was a hit for our New Year's Eve Party. Used gourmet ingredients as suggested. It was great with cheese soup and fresh salad.
KEEPER. Didn't have the onions, so went with a dash of garlic. I've now made these with both turkey and ham. Used plain "country style white bread" too. Even my hubby who hands-down would pick a cold sandwich over grilled LOVED this, and I quote, "MMMM,tasty!" He asked for one for dinner too. :-) I know it's good. He usually has a simple pallette and doesn't often request my "experiments" even if they are what the rest of the known world might call gourmet! lol
I found this recipe awesome. The spread was so delicious. I had only wheat bread and provelone cheese on hand, but the family raved about this . I do think in would be 5 stars wsith the french bread.
The combination of flavors is unique and addictive, and the sauce is a winner (we used reduced fat mayo, and it was delicious). I used a loaf of Italian bread, which provided a nice soft/crusty contrast. My rather picky kids didn't like it, but children with more adventurous palates might.
What a easy and great recipe to jazz up a turkey sandwich. Feed these to our harvest crew today and it will be a keeper. I'll agree with the past reviews that the mayo mixture is alot.
Oh my!! I thought these were fantastic. I had no idea I could make a sandwich like this. I didnt change a thing. All the ingredients and their amounts are perfect. Thank you so much Annie for such an excellent tasting sandwich. I have a feeling I will be making this often.
Outstanding! I cut back on the onion thinking it would be ovwerpowering, it wasn't so next time I'm going to follow the recipe exactly. Easy and very, very tasty.
This sandwich was very good! I had to substitute ranch dressing (recipe from AR) since I didn't have mayo. I did mix it with the mustard. I also had turkey breast left over from dinner earlier this week and used that instead of deli meat. However, my turkey was cold when I made the sandwich so I had to cook on low heat and cover pan with a lid to get it heated through. I will definately make again!
superb. Used roesmary artisan bread and sweet grape tomatoes. Loved it.
Although I loved the sourdough bread, turkey, swiss combination, the sauce just wasn't for me. When I used just the spicy mustard, I enjoyed the sandwich much more.
Outstanding use of left overs while disquising the turkey!
These were pretty good. I think the amount of onion is a personal preference. I thought that the onion was not overwhelming at all but my husband thought you could really taste the aftertaste of the onion. Both of my kids enjoyed and they usually do not like onion or mustard. Thanks Annie
This is the best sandwich i have ever had it was so so good !
Yeah! Awesome way to use some too-dry sliced turkey I bought. I only had powdered thyme, so I cut it down to a teaspoon.
DELICIOUS!!!! The sauce was so good and the combination of ingredients complimented this sandwich. I will most definitely make it again. Thank you for this posting!
Very delicious. I made it in a hurry, and forgot the tomato, but my family still enjoyed it very much. Good stuff!!
This is a great sandwich, the dressing is a wonderful addition. I used low fat mayo and dijon mustard. I ate it with the tomato but ended up taking it off and liking it better. Will definitely make again, I am also going to try adding some roasted red peppers on it as well. i plan to have this for dinner again tonight.
This is definitely a 5 star sandwich!! It was better than ordering an expensive sandwich in a gourmet deli. My husband loved it!
Very yummy easy Friday night supper. I didn't fry them off in a frying pan but wrapped the sandwiches in foil in baked them in the oven.
This is one tasty sandwich! I did switch up a couple of things, though. Since I was afraid of that raw onion taste, I sauted them very lightly in a smidgen of butter, just to take the edge off. Also, I used provolone cheese instead of Swiss, as it was all we had. I used Hellman's Dijonnaise instead of the brown mustard, so I didn't have to use the mayo. Lastly, I cut the thyme in half and was glad I did because half was plenty. I think the full amount would have been too much. We grilled these up on thick sourdough Texas Toast. It was great! We definitely will be making this again!
WOW! My husband said this was the best sandwich he has ever tasted. It was so quick and easy to make. The best part of this sandwich is the mayo mixture it has so much flavor. I had extra so we used it on our boring sandwiches during the week. A new favorite.
I cut this down to one sandwich because it was just me eating and I wanted somethind different. I already had the turkey and swiss in my fridge. This was SO good. I am not a "thyme" person so I cut it in half. It was perfect. I also used country white thick sliced bread (what I had) and put it in the oven for a few minutes on each side. I will definately be making this again!!
This sandwich recipe is a true find...although I did ease up a bit on the thyme the second time around. Absolutely wonderful!
easy and great tasting. My husband said they were the best sandwiches I've made.
These are just about the best sandwiches I have ever tasted. My family loves them. I am a vegetarian, and eat them without the meat, but the sandwich is still delicious.
ok -- nothing great.
My wife and I just got done eating this and it was fantastic. The sauce is great and my wife doesn't really like mustard. We will definitely make this again.
The dressing is SO good, I made some and put it in a bottle in my fridge! I added spicy brown mustard, light miracle whip, paparika, and some garlic powder. Then I took the suggestion to bake the sandwiches at 450 for 5 mins on each side. I used marinated, shredded chicken breast and provolone cheese. "The Mr." doesnt like hot sandwiches all that much, but he sure loved these! They're a snap to make with leftovers and would be sooo good with a nice bowl of soup, or even the chips we had! TRY THIS ONE! You WON'T regret it!
I just had a taste of these and they are AMAZING! I can't wait till I have Thanksgiving leftovers.
Amazing! loved them!
My husband loved it...even though he had to eat it with a knife and fork. It is very messy. I left out the thyme. Great flavor.
