Stephanie’s Turkey Melts ~ Easily Gluten Free, too!

Gluten Free version minus the top slice of bread, so you can see all the yumminess.
I had a similar chicken sandwich at a restaurant once and it inspired this wonderful way to use leftover turkey!  My family likes it so much that I make sure that I get all of the ingredients for this every time we have turkey…or I am in trouble.

Stephanie's Turkey Melts

  • 2 slices of bread I previously used a garlic sourdough bread - YUM! Now, I use my favorite GF bread and sprinkle just a bit of granulated garlic on with the pepper later in the assembly.
  • leftover turkey
  • 1 slice Swiss cheese make sure GF, if necessary
  • mushrooms sliced and sauteed (I add minced garlic and pepper during the last 1-2 minutes)
  • avocado sliced
  • mayonnaise check for gluten, if needed - there are a few that aren't GF
  • cracked pepper ground (optional)


  • Reheat leftover turkey with Swiss cheese over the top in microwave. Slice and saute the mushrooms.
  • Layer each sandwich in the following order: slice of bread, layer of leftover turkey, Swiss cheese, and sauteed mushrooms. Spread a few thin slices of avocado on top. Cover the top slice of bread with mayonnaise and sprinkle with fresh ground pepper (if desired), and top the sandwich. Enjoy!
This is on the sourdough bread…. definitely NOT GF. The mushrooms are also under the turkey on this one.
