Lundi: Recipes

Thursday is Thanksgiving here in the U.S. and for many of us that will mean leftover turkey.  Turkey sandwiches are one of the primary ways to enjoy those leftovers but the same old turkey on wheat with Swiss can get a little old, even if you do change up the condiments.  So here is a different approach to the turkey sandwich: turkey pesto on French rolls.

¼ cup mayonnaise
1 tbsp pesto
1 tsp lemon juice
½ tsp dried oregano
¼ tsp black pepper
4, 2 oz French bread rolls
2 cups trimmed arugula
8 oz sliced turkey
8 slices of tomato
4 slices mozzarella cheese

Preheat your broiler.  Thoroughly combine the mayo, pesto, lemon juice, oregano and pepper in a small mixing bowl.

Cut rolls in half horizontally and spread both halves with the mayo mixture.  Divide arugula, turkey and tomato slices between rolls; top each with a slice of cheese.  Place the bottom halves of the rolls (with turkey and cheese on them) on a foil lined baking sheet.  Broil about 2 minutes or until the cheese melts.  Remove from broiler, cover each with the top half of its roll and enjoy!  Bon appetite ~
