This sandwich was dinner for the kids with homemade tomato soup. I followed the recipe closely, only scaling the recipe back to two sandwiches, I used whole wheat bread and I cooked the sandwiches in my cast iron skillet. I was a little concerned that the kids wouldn't like them but they both thought this was the best sandwich EVER. They both asked for seconds.

I thought the sourdough was a little tough for making a nicely melted sandwich. My turkey was at room temperature when I bit into it shortly after pulling it off the stove. My bread wasn't sliced thick either. My husband complained about the mayo, too much, and never even realized it had salsa in it. So make sure you don't use a mild salsa. I also think I will use good old American Cheese singles to make the sandwich gooier. It has a ton of potential though, and I might consider trying it again. The three stars are more that it was quite edible, but needs adjustment for MY family.

Excellent twist on a turkey sandwich! I made mine in the George Foreman grill and it was delicious.

Exceptional! Way more than just a dressed up grilled cheese!! This has its own unique flavor and is just plain good!! The sourdough bread really adds to this recipe. I did not have salsa to put in the dressing so I subbed some chopped garlic and I used lite mayo. The entire family LOVED these sandwiches. Thank you for sharing this recipe!!

Wonderfully spicy, I loved the flaovrs in this one. I used Miracle Whip and Old El Paso picante salsa, black peppered smoked turkey and some chili powder and freeze dried chives. This had wonderful flavor. The only difficulty was eating it as I used sandwich bread and the sauce made the turkey tend to want to slip out and not stay in place while trying to eat this. What a great sandwich! Thanks!

Great quick after work dinner. The kids and husband even love it. I would recommend making sure the green onion is chopped very fine or it causes a weird texture issue. You will have leftovers so this is also great to put in the kids lunchboxes the next day.
