As Fall approaches, I start to think of hearty, comforting dishes. One that comes to mind is turkey with gravy. This open-faced sandwich fits the bill. With a few tweaks to the original recipe, this could be your next go-to comfort dinner.
2 Tbsp. margarine or butter
1 large onion, thinly sliced
3/4 lb. cooked turkey breast, cut into 1/8-inch-thick slices
1 (12-oz.) jar fat-free turkey gravy
4 slices bread
- Melt margarine in large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat.
- Add onion; cover and cook 4 to 6 minutes or until onion is tender and lightly browned, stirring occasionally.
- Add turkey and gravy; cook until thoroughly heated, stirring occasionally.
- To serve, place 1 slice of bread on each plate. Top bread with turkey and onion mixture.

- This was just ok as is. The bread was soggy. Next time, I would toast the bread and use a hearty variety, such as rye.
- I used sliced turkey from the deli. However, thick slices of carved turkey from a roasted turkey would have made this an excellent sandwich.
- This sandwich needs a little bit of color. Perhaps some green onion or peas in the gravy would be a good addition.
