Apple, Brie & Turkey Sandwich

This post is sponsored by Hillshire Farm.

hillshire-farm-naturalsA while ago, Pete found a sandwich maker in a magazine. It had breads and meats in the middle, then offshoots of cheese and extras. You started in the middle, picked a cheese and an extra, and that was supposed to be a perfect sandwich. He had been saving the pages for a while, hoping we would have an excuse to use it.

We did … and the exact sandwich we came up with was one I had thought of before heading to the store. So good to know that my delicious creation wasn’t exactly as original as I thought. Oh well. It was delicious.

We came up with the idea because Hillshire Farm sent us a coupon to try the new Hillshire Farm Naturals cold cuts. They come in either turkey or ham. I don’t eat ham, so I decided on turkey before we even made it to the store. When we got there, the only ones left were turkey. All the ham was sold out. Sounds like I’m in the minority when it comes to my cold cut choices.

Apple, Brie & Turkey Sandwich

What You’ll Need:

  • Hillshire Farm Naturals slow-cooked turkey breast
  • Granny Smith apple
  • Whole Wheat bread
  • Brie cheese

What You’ll Do:

Cut apple slices and put them on the bread.

Put four slices of the Hillshire Farm Naturals slow-cooked turkey breast on top of the apple. Three slices is the serving size, but it didn’t fill my sandwich. Personally, I like to keep the turkey sort of “crumpled” like on the left. In that case we needed four slices. You could flatten them like the sandwich on the right, but it just isn’t my favorite way to make a sandwich).

Put a few slices of brie on top.

Top with another slice of bread.

We didn’t put any condiments on our sandwich. It didn’t need any, and I didn’t need the extra calories.

Since I only used half the apple to make two sandwiches, I cut the rest of it up into “apple fries.” Yes, they’re just apple slices but they were cut in the shape of fries. I filled the rest of the plate with pita chips, as opposed to just throwing potato chips on the plate. Potato chips and sandwiches are a great combination, but I was going for health.

We were actually really impressed with the lunchmeat. They weren’t slimy at all. You know what I mean, right? Sometimes, you get a pack of cold cuts that uses cheap turkey and it is just slimy and gross and just not something I want to eat. Thankfully, these were not like that. And they tasted great too. Pete was impressed with the flavor of them.

Between the two of us, we ate eight slices, leaving four in the box. What’s great is there was actually a box to leave them in. It has a snap top so you can keep the leftover slices fresh. Now, if you can keep your family from picking at the last slices, well, that’s your battle.

What kind of sandwich would you make with these?
