  • 2 slices sourdough bread
  • 1 tablespoon butter

Red Wine Vinegar Mayo

  • Mix together the mayo, red wine vinegar, and black pepper in a small bowl, and set aside.
  • Cook bacon in a large skillet over medium heat until crispy. Flip as needed, then remove and set aside.
  • Warm the turkey meat by placing the slices flat on a plate and heating in the microwave for 30 seconds.
  • Butter the exterior of the bread and add cheese, turkey, bacon, tomato, and remaining slice of bread. Spread red wine vinegar mayo on the second slice of bread and place on top of the sandwich.
  • Place the turkey sandwich in a skillet set over medium low heat and cook until the bread is golden brown and the cheese has melted. Flip and repeat.
