These are so good and easy to make! Never thought to put these items together as a sandwich!
I had lots of left over turkey from Thanksgiving and thought of this sandwich/ everyone loved them/used swiss cheese on it - had just bought some hot pepper jelly at a craft sale!
Haven't made this sandwich yet. While looking at the reviews I noticed one person said she didn't have cajun seasoning on hand. I didn't see any reference to that in the recipe. Have I missed something? Is the recipe complete?
This sandwich was a nice change of pace. I substituted Habanero jelly since that is what I had on hand, it was spicy hot and delicious. I use my George Foreman grill to make any kind of sandwich melt instead of a pan and it comes out just like a panini press with the ridges and everything. No need to butter the slices..which can rip the tender bread...just run your butter over the hot grill plates, stick your sandwich in & voila...crispy, crunchy, buttery & delicious...plus almost zero clean up.
this is a great sandwich with lots of possibilities. I was frustrated because I didn't have cajun seasoning, but it still tasted great! Its a keeper. I can't wait to try it with the cajun, or creole, or even blackening. It was so good.
