Toasted Mini Baguettes with Turkey, Swiss Cheese and Caramelized Onions

Whenever we go out to eat and a bread basket is placed on the table, I will inevitably grab the baguette.

The crispy on the outside, soft, warm, and yeasty on the inside baguette – baguettes are one of the few breads whose siren song I am simply unable to resist.

There’s nothing quite so wonderful the day after Thanksgiving as a Turkey sandwich with all the trimmings, whether you prefer cranberries and turkey or turkey with mayo and lettuce, I’ve got a new leftover Turkey sandwich that’s going to knock your socks off.

Sweet Caramelized Onion, Turkey, & Swiss Toasted Baguette Sandwiches

In a small saucepan over medium-low heat, I melted 4 Tbsp (1/4 C) butter and added one sliced medium sweet yellow onion.

While the butter and heat worked their magic on the onion, I heated up the Mini Baguettes (2) and sliced some of our leftover Turkey – I used my Poblano and Citrus Roasted Turkey recipe.

When the baguettes and the onions were ready I got a slice of Swiss Cheese and laid it out with the rest of the ingredients

I sliced open both baguettes and drizzled the delicious butter and onion sauce from the pan onto the bread

After I drizzled the inside of both the top and bottom of each baguette, I placed sliced turkey on the bottom half of the baguette and topped the turkey with caramelized onions and placed a slice of swiss cheese on the other piece of mini baguette.

I placed these sandwich halves on a cookie sheet facing up and placed them in a 375 F oven for about 7 minutes – until the cheese was melted

and left Nathan’s as it was.

The resulting sandwiches were…

Well – in a word – Tonguegasmic.

Sadly, the mini baguettes are not available near me yet, however I can order them online from Sister Schubert’s and you can bet your sweet bippy that I’m going to be ordering several bags.
