"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!"
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

chopped red onion
coarse-grain brown mustard
country style French Bread
thinly sliced roast turkey
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.
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.
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.
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!
