Quick And Easy!

In a rush and don't know what to make for dinner? This sandwich is easy to make and big on flavor!

Sweet turkey sandwich

Dinnertime can be a mad rush. Kids have practice, dad works late and mom is tired. This sandwich might look basic, but it's filling and delicious! Sweet raisin pumpernickel bread is paired with fresh sliced turkey, homemade Russian dressing and any toppings you can imagine. Avocados bring a nice creaminess to the dish and provide a nice healthy dose of natural fat. This simple dish is also great for summer. It's 100 degrees outside. Who wants to stand over a stove?

Wow this looks super easy and really tasty! The raisin pumpernickel bread seems like it just "makes" this recipe. Great suggestion - thanks!

Talk about the easiest dinner ever! I am not a huge fan of russian dressing though, so I would probably add my own condiment. I might even throw it on my panini press to make it a little more exciting.

Wow, this certainly is easy! I have been sweating over my stove too much this summer, and now I’m in the mood for something quick, simple and most of all cool! This sandwich can also make a perfect meal for lunch, or my favorite, a midnight snack. I might start making these at night and brown-bagging them to work. Thank you!
