Not Just Your Average Turkey Sandwich

I had been making a lot of breads in the last week and slowly, my husband and I have been eating them. When I looked in my fridge today, I noticed I just had two of my Homemade Flour Tortillas and half of a Homemade Hoagie Roll left. It was just enough to make a nice lunch for my husband and myself, this snowy Wednesday. Fortunately, yesterday I went grocery shopping and I had purchased some Deli Turkey (on Sale!). However, I was not in the mood for a cold sandwich. So, after some thought, I decided to spice things up.

What I ended with was a hot Turkey sandwich filling with a bit of a sweet kick from caramelized onions and some warmth and spice from cumin and chili powder. With this I made two Quesadillas and half a sandwich. This recipe is a definite keeper for me. I want to try making them into panninis and wraps next (Ohh..maybe with a Spinach Wrap..YUM!). Enjoy!


1 cup of diced, thick sliced turkey (you can use leftover meats or chicken as well)

2 medium onions, sliced thinly

2 tablespoons of butter

1 tablespoon of sugar

1/2 teaspoons of garlic powder

1 teaspoon of cumin powder

1 teaspoon of chili powder

1/2 teaspoon of salt

Shredded Mozzarella cheese


  1. Saute butter, sugar and onions until onions are browned and caramelized (Sugar will speed up the caramelizing process) on Medium High Heat.
  2. Add turkey and spices and cook until everything is combined and heated through
  3. Place filling  on bread or tortilla and sprinkle with mozzarella cheese and heat on frying pan until bread/tortilla is toasted on both sides and cheese melts.

  2. This is the most simple, easy but wonderful turkey sandwich. It really looks good. I love light lunches or snacks because if I don’t eat light around lunch, I won’t work lol. Seriously, the I’TIS kicks in lol. But you really knocked it out of the park with this sandwich. Every time I come here, seriously, I start to get hungry lol.
