Roasted Turkey Sandwich with Herb Cream Cheese & Strawberries
Why I Love This Recipe
I found this recipe (courtesy of Tyler Florence) while looking for something creative to do with leftover turkey. It's surprisingly delicious!
Ingredients You'll Need
8 ounces cream cheese, softened
1 tablespoon fresh dill, chopped
1 tablespoon fresh tarragon leaves, chopped
1 tablespoon fresh chives, chopped
8 slices good quality dense white bread, toasted
1/2 pound roasted turkey breast, thinly sliced
1 pint strawberries, hulled and thinly sliced
Fleur de sel* optional
*Fleur de sel is a high grade coarse sea salt and is available at gourmet shops.
Combine the cream cheese and herbs. Spread the toasted bread with a layer of the herbed cream cheese. Place 2 slices of turkey on top and then some strawberry slices. Garnish with more herbs and a few grains of fleur de sel, if using. Slice each sandwich in half.
NOTE: I used freeze-dried herbs and regular leftover turkey (not thinly sliced), ommitted the sea salt & the sandwich still came out great.
