Here’s a hot turkey sandwich with a difference! Or is it a hot turkey salad with a difference? Cooked ground turkey is spooned onto pita crusts and topped with sliced tomatoes and a creamy cheese topping that melts as it heats in the oven. You’ll definitely eat this sandwich with a fork!

Ingredients

1
pound ground turkey
1
tablespoon butter or margarine
1/2
teaspoon poultry seasoning
2
pita breads (6 inches in diameter)
1
medium tomato, thinly sliced
1
medium celery stalk, sliced (1/2 cup)
1/2
cup shredded sharp Cheddar cheese (2 ounces)
1/2
cup sour cream
1/3
cup mayonnaise or salad dressing
1
tablespoon chopped onion
Paprika, if desired

Directions

  • 1 Heat oven to 425ºF. Cook turkey, butter and poultry seasoning in 10-inch skillet over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until turkey is no longer pink; drain.
  • 2 Split each pita bread around edge with knife to make 2 rounds. Line bottom and about halfway up sides of ungreased square pan, 9x9x2 inches, with pita breads (they will overlap slightly in middle). Layer turkey, tomato and celery on pitas.
  • 3 Mix remaining ingredients except paprika; spoon over top. Sprinkle with paprika. Bake 12 to 15 minutes or until topping is light brown.

Expert Tips

This is easy to lighten up. Just use reduced-fat sour cream and mayonnaise (or even low-fat yogurt) and light or reduced-fat Cheddar cheese.

Colby cheese or a milder Cheddar cheese is a good cheese choice, too.
