What is it about Thanksgiving that excites you the most? Is it a beautiful table laid out with a selection of home cooked dishes? The togetherness that you feel when surrounded by loved ones? The fact that you don't have to go to work that day, or a combination of all those things?
I didn't grow up celebrating Thanksgiving, and so although I am excited to celebrate with family here it's also a little stressful to cook a meal that they have had the time to perfect for years. It's my turn to host this year and the pressure is on, but once it's all said and done we get to my favorite part of Thanksgiving... The morning after! The turkey sandwich for breakfast!
For me the turkey sandwich NEEDS to be spicy. It's what I crave after all the creamy, the sweet, the mild and earthy flavors of a traditional Thanksgiving meal. Enter my friends at Sir Kensington's and their flavor packed Chipotle Mayonnaise! It's really great on anything (tacos, subs, in dips) but the cumin notes and chipotle peppers in adobo really work well in sandwiches with smoked fillings.
This Chipotle Turkey Toastie starts with a generous helping of Sir Kensington's Chipotle Mayonnaise spread on some sourdough bread instead of butter. Did I mention FLAVOR? There's a lot of it here :) Biting into the crunchy chipotle-flavored toasted bread is enough to wake up any palate. I used my grill pan because I love the look of those sear marks but any pan will do.
This is where it gets even tastier... The fillings depend on your Thanksgiving leftovers and dietary preferences but mine has smoked turkey, sharp cheddar, pickled red onion and jalapēnos. Praise be.
Chipotle Turkey Toastie
2 slices sourdough bread
1 tablespoon Sir Kensington's Chipotle Mayonnaise
3-4 slices smoked turkey
1/2 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese
1/4 cup pickled red onion slices
Optional extra heat: Jalapenos
Heat a griddle plan to medium-high.
Divide your Sir Kensington's Chipotle Mayonnaise and spread on one side of your bread. Make sure to spread it evenly and cover the entire slice for maximum flavor. Flip your sliced bread and add cheese on each side, then turkey and onion slices. Gently press down to flatten slightly and place sandwich on griddle pan.
Cook for 1-2 minutes per side, or until the cheese is melted and the bread nicely grilled.
