Feel like you're in a jam with serving the same old sandwiches? Here's a turkey stack that will add variety.
cup apricot jam
tablespoon Dijon mustard
cup plain whipped cream cheese or honey-nut soft cream cheese (from 8-ounce tub)
tablespoons chopped dried apricots
slices cinnamon raisin bread
slices whole wheat bread
pound thinly sliced smoked turkey or fully cooked ham
Mix apricot jam and mustard. Mix cream cheese and apricots.
Spread jam mixture on one side of 8 slices cinnamon bread and 8 slices wheat bread. Place turkey on cinnamon bread; add wheat bread with spread sides down.
Spread cream cheese mixture on remaining 8 slices cinnamon bread. Place cinnamon bread, cream cheese sides down, on sandwich stacks. Cut each sandwich diagonally into fourths to make 4 triangular sandwiches.
Go ahead and try dried cranberries or cherries instead of the apricots.
For a tidy stack, be sure the breads are similar in size. They'll stack evenly and can be cut into uniform triangles.
Add a bit of green to these sandwiches by tucking in watercress, mâche, romaine or oakleaf lettuce leaves.
