Description

This turkey melt has a unique blend of flavors with creamy Muenster cheese, sweet caramelized onions, smoked turkey and a spicy pumpkin mayo!

Ingredients

  • FOR THE ONIONS:
  • 3 Tablespoons Butter
  • 2 Tablespoons Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 2 whole Large Onions, Peeled And Thinly Sliced, 2 Onions Will Be Roughly 2 Lbs
  • ¼ teaspoons Salt
  • ¼ teaspoons Pepper
  • 2 teaspoons Sugar
  • FOR THE MAYO:
  • ¼ cups Mayonnaise
  • 2 Tablespoons Canned Pumpkin Puree
  • ⅛ teaspoons Chipotle Chili Powder
  • 1 pinch Paprika
  • 1 pinch Salt
  • FOR THE SANDWICHES:
  • 8 teaspoons Butter
  • 8 slices Italian Loaf Bread
  • 4 slices Smoked Turkey
  • 4 slices Muenster Cheese

Preparation

For the onions:
In a large saute pan over medium heat, melt butter in olive oil, swirling to combine. Add sliced onions, salt and pepper and cook for about 2 minutes or until the onions begin to soften. Stir in sugar. Continue cooking onions for 20 minutes. Be sure to stir often to prevent the onions from burning. Remove onions from heat and set aside.

For the mayonnaise:
In a small bowl, combine mayonnaise, pumpkin, chili powder, paprika and salt. Set aside.

For the sandwiches:
Heat a griddle pan over medium heat. Butter the bottoms of 4 slices of bread and place on the griddle pan, buttered side down. Top each slice of bread with a slice of turkey, a slice of cheese, 1 tablespoon of pumpkin mayo, 1-2 tablespoons (eyeball this) of caramelized onions and another slice of bread. Butter tops of each sandwich.

Cook sandwiches on each side for roughly 3-5 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from griddle and serve!

I made these as an accompaniment to some vegetable soup I had put together – thus fulfilling my hubby’s need for at least a minimum of some meat at each meal :) This is a delicious sandwich and the caramelized onions totally make it a winner. You can easily adjust the spice in the pumpkin mayo to suit your taste. I would like to try this method with leftover roast slices as well.
