Hot Turkey Sandwiches Recipe

If you're looking for a deliciously different entree, try Hot Turkey Sandwiches suggested by Janice Bilek of Holland, Michigan. Her version has tender shredded turkey in a basil cream sauce. "The sandwiches are a nice change of pace from turkey in traditional gravy," Janice says.

"I've made this recipe several times and it is absoutely yummy! I usually cut it in thirds, cooking just one turkey breast and 1/3 the other ingredients."
