Grilled Turkey Apple Sandwich

Grilled Turkey and Apple Sandwich (The Gingered Whisk)


I don’t know if its all the extra time we have been spending outside, or if we really are busier than normal, but man – I am worn out. I’m finding it harder and harder to get out of bed in the morning, I need more coffee to get going, and by the time I can finally crawl into bed I am completely wiped out. I have been all about simple and quick food lately, but I still want things that taste good. My daughters might think its ok to eat a PB&J for 3 meals a day for the rest of their lives, but if I have to eat one more of them I might lose it. I’ve never been much of a sandwich eater, but I have been loving this one lately!
Grilled Turkey and Apple Sandwich (The Gingered Whisk)

This sandwich makes a great lunch or quick dinner. It’s not quite your typical grilled cheese sandwich. In fact, don’t think of it as a grilled cheese at all. Think of it more as a panini, without the fancy grill press. A slather of mango chutney adds an unexpected tangy note, and pairs perfectly with the tart apple and freshly chopped parsley. Its a flavor combo you won’t tire of soon!
