Tangy Turkey Melts

I absolutely LOVE sandwiches, and my brother's used to tease me, ALL of the time, after hearing me say that phrase often while growing up!  This recipe gives a little twist on the traditional grilled cheese by adding turkey, tomato and a SUPER yummy TANGY sauce.  This will definitely become one of your family's FAVORITE as it has with mine!  Served with a side of soup or salad, this makes for a GREAT quick and EASY week night meal.


3/4 C chopped red onion
1 T dried thyme
1/4 C mayonnaise
1/4 C honey mustard
6 T butter
8 slices of bread (just whatever you have on hand)
8 slices of tomato
8 slices of cheese (preferably Swiss or provolone)
1 lb sliced roasted turkey meat (or whatever amount you have on hand.  I tend to use less in order to make my meat stretch!)


Butter one side of each slice of bread.
In a small bowl, stir together the red onion, thyme, mayo and mustard.
Spread some of this mixture on the unbuttered side of each slice of bread.
Heat skillet or griddle over medium heat.
Place 4 slices of bread into the skillet, buttered side down.
On each slice, layer a couple slices of turkey, then a slice of tomato and top with a slice of cheese.
Place remaining slices of bread over the top, butter side up.
Cook, covered, on both sides until golden brown.
