Here you get to use your imagination! The example sandwich is but one of thousands of builds that can be constructed. This is a great use for those huge, not real flavorful breasts of supermarket turkeys that may still be left after the connoisseurs have eaten all the dark meat. Spice them up to your hearts content.

Building the Example
  1. Toast BREAD lightly and spread one side with MAYONNAISE.
  2. Tear LETTUCE into large hunks and place on the mayonnaise side of one bread slice,
  3. Slice TURKEY BREAST thin and arrange on top of lettuce.
  4. Spread Mustard over turkey slices and sprinkle on a little Pepper if desired.
  5. Slice ONION thin and arrange on top of turkey.
  6. Slice TOMATO thin and place on top of onion.
  7. Sprinkle Cilantro Leaves over Tomato.
  8. Cap with second slice of Bread, mayonnaise side down and squish the sandwich lightly to settle the innards.
  9. Slice diagonally as shown or into triangles. Serve.
Application Notes
  1. Turkey Breast:   You can slice it much thinner after it has been refrigerated for a day. Slice on a double diagonal to get slices with a large area (diagonal to the length and knife tilted).
  2. Turkey:   It can be shredded rather than sliced, which would allow use of darker meat as well as breast.
  3. Bacon:   Cut into 1/2 strips and fry until lightly crisp, keeping as flat as possible
  4. Cheese:   You may want to leave the sandwich open, run under the broiler to melt the cheese, then cap it with the second slice of bread.
  5. Frying:   Some sandwiches are made by buttering one side of the bread and spreading mayonnaise on the other side. The sandwich is assembled butter side out and fried in a pan, turning once.
  6. U.S. measure: t=teaspoon, T=Tablespoon, c=cup, qt=quart, oz=ounce, #=pound, cl=clove in=inch, ar=as required tt=to taste
