Roast Turkey Sandwich with Artichoke Tapenade, Caramelized Onions and Roasted Red Peppers

Roast Turkey Sandwich with Artichoke Tapenade, Caramelized Onions and Roasted Red Peppers

The last time that I made tapenade I thought that in addition to being good as a topping for crostini, that a tapenade would also be good as a spread in sandwiches. When I made the artichoke and green olive tapenade with asiago I remembered thinking this and I planned on saving some of it to use in a few sandwiches. I had had roast turkey sandwiches on my mind for a few days and the turkey and artichoke tapenade combo sounded like a good one! Since I did not really want to roast a full turkey just to make a few sandwiches I picked up a large turkey breast and just did that. A turkey breast is great for things like this as it is really easy to roast and it provides you with plenty of meat that is just perfect for sandwiches! So far the sandwich had some nice roast turkeya and a salty and flavourful tapenade so I decided to add something on the sweeter side, with some slowly caramelized onions and since I sill have plenty of roasted red pepper from the fall roasting, I added some of those to the mix. I finished the sandwich off with some baby spinach and a touch of mayonnaise.

Just by looking at the list of flavour packed ingredients in this sandwich you can tell that it is going to be amazing and it does not disappoint! All of the flavours play well together forming one really tasty sandwich! I am going to have to make a bigger batch of the artichoke and green olive tapenade with asiago nest time!

That is one majorly serious sandwich! You stuffed it with so many delicious things...and I bet it's just as good even without the turkey for us vegetarians!

This is one good looking and sounding sandwich. Pumpernickel bread always makes for a great presentation.

Jenny said...

This looks like something that vegetarians could enjoy, too, just by omitting the turkey. Yum!

I like that you used a dark bread for this sandwich--pumpernickel right? looks good!

Kevin said...

Emily: Yes that is a pumpernickel bread which I often enjoy using for sandwiches, though it can sometimes be more difficult to photograph well.
