Enjoy this delicious Turkey Sandwich Recipe with a twist.
Ok. So it’s January. And the fashionable thing to do is pronounce all the awful New Year’s Resolutions. People proclaim they will lose 500 pounds this year and earn an extra $1.5MM and will finally land that amazing job in Tahiti that requires twice weekly manicures. Yup. You know you’ve seen this.
My approach is a wee more gentle and lot more realistic. How about if we just eat a little bit healthier and get a little more exercise each week? I know. It’s not sexy, and it’s not going to land me a front page on Buzzfeed, but it is realistic. Besides, focusing on having a healthy lunch each day is delicious! Everyone talks about “meal prep.” Here’s my contribution to that whole thing. What if we make a turkey sandwich to take with us for lunch? Not impressed? Maybe you need to take a look at this.
Hello gorgeous! Yeah. I thought that would get your attention. I am of the attitude that even the simplest things can be pretty darn special if using the best ingredients and put a little extra love into them. Like this sandwich.
The backstory on how this recipe came to be is that before Christmas, I was approached by Grandma Hoener’s. I had not heard of this company, but they asked me if I would be interested in receiving some of their products to try and if I liked them, would I share something online about them. I was impressed with their company story, and felt like it aligned well with mine, so I agreed to try out some things. The Heritage Recipes are made using the founder’s grandmother’s real recipes. That pretty much sold me on them.
The first thing they have sent me is their Raspberry Seedless Preserves. Holy moly. It’s amazing!!! I would not be this enthusiastic if it were a lack luster product. The truth is, it’s absolutely delicious! I challenged myself to come up with a couple of healthy, easy recipes using the preserves for this month.
And, I decided to start with a Turkey Sandwich. I know what you’re thinking, so hear me out. It is so delicious you are not going to believe it! I used cracker pepper turkey and hot dijon mustard, so the sweet of the Raspberry balanced out perfectly. It created the most tasty, most gourmet style turkey sandwich I’ve ever made! I know it seems weird. Trust me, I know. I was weirded out making it. But then I tasted it! Sheer delight! Much better than the typical mayo I generally use.
This is one recipe that even a total non cook can make. It’s also something that even the most die hard junk food lover can enjoy. Substitute a healthy meal like this for your usual burger and see how you feel in a week or two. I’m certain you won’t go back to eating junk for lunch!
