Hot smoked turkey salad sandwiches
I found a bag of smoked turkey pieces in the freezer yesterday morning, and layed it out without any particular idea of what I was going to do with it. Then I remembered a recipe I'd seen in the new Taste of Home for a chicken sandwich filling that went in a crockpot. That gave me an idea, and here's what I came up with, using what I had on hand.
Hot Smoked Turkey Salad Sandwiches
About 5 cups chopped smoked turkey
3 oz Velveeta, cubed
6 oz finely shredded cheddar
1 can lowfat cream of mushroom soup
1 can lowfat cream of chicken soup
1/4 cup finely diced onion
loaf of French bread
Combine all ingredients except bread.
Slice bread in half horizontally, and pick the bread out of the middle, leaving a shell about one inch thick.
Cover a baking sheet with foil, place bread-shells on foil and fill generously with turkey filling.
Tent with foil, and bake at 400 degrees for 10-12 minutes, removing the foil the last few minutes. Let stand 5 minutes, slice into serving sized pieces and enjoy!
Note: You could really spice this up if you wanted, or use other combinations of meats and cheeses. Of course, what really made it special was the smoked turkey.
