Deli Counter Turkey Sandwich

This Deli Counter Turkey Sandwich is BIG on flavor! Crunchy bun, sliced turkey, creamy Swiss cheese, sweet dressing, and crunchy coleslaw. This will easily become your go-to sandwich!

I call this the ‘deli counter’ sandwich since I get most of the ingredients from saying ‘Can I have a 1/4 pound of this..’ at the deli counter because like the beer being mine, I am just making this sandwich for myself.  Mine, mine, mine!  The fellas in my house don’t have the affinity I do for a good sandwich.  No worries, more for me.

What movie pairs well with a sandwich and craft beer?

For entertainment, we are watching a show called The Detour.  It is a HILARIOUS comedy about a family you will easily fall in love with. The perfect escape and very binge worthy.

What beer pairs well with a Deli Counter Turkey Sandwich?

The beer: Oberon from Bell’s Brewing.

It’s officially Oberon season!  So tonight for Mitten Movie Night we picked this up from a great store in St. Joseph, MI called The Liquor Cabinet.  When looking to get lost in rows and rows of craft beer I suggest you go and take a visit if you’re in the area.

This amount made for a big sandwich with lots of flavors. If you’re making one sandwich (like me) get 1/4 sliced turkey then order the smallest bowl of coleslaw (around 1/4 pound).

The deli at my local store has homemade rolls that are amazing so I hope you do too, grab one!  I use them to make my Portobello Mushroom Burger.  Right by the counter, you can get slices of cheese, so I picked up some swiss cheese.

I was lucky enough to have the dressing so that was taken care of.

How to make a Deli Counter Turkey Sandwich:

Take a baking sheet then cut the bun in half, apply butter and place face down.  Put 1/4 turkey on the sheet pan with the bun then add the sliced cheese on top.

Buns, turkey and swiss cheese on a sheet pan ready to make a sandwich.

Bake at 350 degrees for 10 minutes.  As you can see below, baking the bun alongside the turkey and cheese make it the perfect base to build this turkey sandwich on.

After all done assemble bun, turkey with the melted cheese, coleslaw and drizzle with dressing.

And here you are…..

Sliders have been a huge hit in my house since I started making them about a year ago.  In the summer they pair well with chips and other cold side dishes. In the winter they are perfect for dipping into soups.  They are also big on flavor when you hit the right combination.  I think I have a winner for you today for Sunday Supper, Turkey & Bacon Sliders with ‘Isn’t That Special’ Sauce.

Sure you can make these sliders just plain or maybe add some boring mayonnaise on it but WHY would you when you can add some ‘Isn’t That Special’ Sauce? 

While this is similar to the pickle & vinegar based sauce we all know and love, I really wanted to set mine apart with a unique name.  So I am paying homage to a show that I have loved since my early teen’s, Saturday Night Live.

You know that question, “Who are the 3 people you would invite to dinner?” 

I could easily answer that and everyone at the table would be a former cast member of SNL.  I am a super Tina Fey Fan Girl.  Will Ferrell in my eyes is the hottest guy in Hollywood.  And Steve Martin is a genius. Who would you invite to dinner?

How to make Turkey & Bacon Sliders with ‘Isn’t That Special Sauce:

Cook your bacon according to package direction.  I just make mine right on my stove top but my friend swears by baking it in the oven.

Drain the bacon then set up a slider assembly.

Grease the bottom of a baking dish.  Add buns, turkey, bacon, and cheese.  Top off with the bun.

In a microwave-safe mug add 4 Tbs. butter and 1/2 tsp. garlic powder.  Melt butter in the microwave.  Pour on top of the sliders.

Put sliders into a preheated 375-degree oven for 20 minutes.

For the sauce.  Mix all the ingredients together in a bowl.  Done!

Add lettuce and tomatoes if you wish.

And here you are…..
