turkey sandwich recipeWhen Wes and I were in Charleston, eating our way through town, our children were at my mother-in-law’s house in Southport, NC.  You could say that Southport is a cute, quaint, southern town.  I had not been there in 3 years and Southport has grown.  I had a few very delicious meals during our short visit there.  But the one that I keep thinking about (you know how I like to obsess over good meals) is the lunch that I had at a little place called Baked with Love.  I had a turkey sandwich very similar to this one.  It had sliced turkey, cheddar cheese, crispy bacon, lettuce, roasted red pepper and onion relish on a rosemary and olive oil bread.  Served alongside of that was a perfect shrimp bisque and the best homemade pretzel ever to touch my lips.  It was one of the best lunches I have had in a long, long time.

It is meals like this that keep me fresh in the kitchen.  I came home and knew that I needed to recreate this delicious sandwich.  I had brined a turkey breast with the intentions of using it for this sandwich.  If I was really ambitious, I would have made a rosemary bread but I was in a hurry and I wanted this sandwich.  Like yesterday.  I have talked about my dislike of mayo and that was the thing that drew me to this sandwich in the first place.  I like when a cafe or restaurant goes out on a limb and does something different that does not include mayo.   I was surprised that I had no problem finding the relish in the grocery store.  I knew that I could get one at the Harry and David store but was really happy to find it at my local Bel-Air.  My bakery was out of rosemary bread, so I used a Dutch Crunch.  Next time I will use a less doughy bread, but this was still a delicious sandwich.  It was not the same sandwich that I had at Baked with Love but was so good and reminded me of that delicious lunch.  I cannot wait to go back to Southport and have it again.
