Servings 4 people


  • 4 slices hearty bread preferably a sourdough, preferably homemade
  • 1/2 lb smoked wild turkey
  • 1 sprig fresh rosemary
  • 8 tbsp mayonnaise
  • 4 tbsp whole-grain mustard
  • 1 tbsp honey
  • 8 tbsp pickled apple chutney 1 diced apple, 1/2 cup cider vinegar, 2 tbsp salt, 1 tbsp brown sugar
  • 4 ounces of your favorite medium cheddar gouda can be nice, too


  • First, let’s get the apples in a quick pickle: Heat the vinegar and
    combine with salt & brown sugar, and apple and set aside. You can
    do this up to several days in advance - just be sure to drain it before
    using or you’ll only taste vinegar.
  • For the sandwich: First heat your oven to bake at 400 degrees and
    prepare a baking sheet for the top rack.
  • Combine the mayonnaise, whole-grain mustard, honey and
    chopped rosemary.
  • Butter one side of your bread and smear the other liberally with
    your sauce.
  • Construct your sandwich with the remaining ingredients - turkey
    and cheese.
  • Bake until the cheese is melted and your bread is sufficiently toasty.
