Cralmonary Swiss Turkey Sandwich

var fbShare = {size: ‘small’,}

I was so excited to be able to participate in the Black & Decker Ultimate Sandwich Campaign.  I thought I would pick my mom’s brain for ideas for tasty sandwich creations when we visited at Easter, but it was actually a ‘crisp bread’ snack that I had there that inspired my sandwich.  This small round snack was infused with raisins, almonds and rosemary.

That got my creative juices flowing.  The raisins I replaced with Craisins, and what goes best with cranberries…well turkey of course!  The almond taste was achieved with almond butter.  I included the rosemary within the ‘spread’ and added some Swiss cheese to the mix.  And voila! the Cralmonary Swiss Turkey Sandwich was born.  These might seem like some odd ingredients to put together…but they complement each other and work!


1 Hoagie bun
2 slices Swiss cheese
2 1/2 oz. of deli sliced turkey breast

Cralmonary Spread
3 tbsp. smooth Almond Butter
1/2 oz. of dried cranberries
1/4 tsp. dried Rosemary

Mix the ingredients in the Cralmonary Spread together and spread on the bottom half of the bun. 

Top with the turkey.  Place the cheese on top of the turkey.  Now is the time to place it in the toaster oven.

Naturally since this sandwich creation was sponsored by Black & Decker, I used a Black & Decker Convection Countertop Toaster Oven for my recipe.

Toast sandwich until the cheese is melted and the top portion of the bun starts to brown.  Carefully remove your sandwich from the toaster oven as it will be hot and you may have a bit of dripping from the cheese and/or the almond butter.

Place your top half of the bun on top and you’re ready to eat!

 This sandwich has complementing tastes and textures.  The sweet cranberries play off the Swiss cheese and the crunchy toastedness of the bun complements the smooth Almond Butter.  The Rosemary gives the BAM! to the whole sandwich.
