Today, I’m posting a quick and tasty sandwich idea using Zesteez tomato chutney. We are not big sandwich eaters in our house. Occasionally, we get the hankering for a grilled cheese. Nothing fancy, nothing gourmet – just your basic cheddar on bread. However, when we have either set of our parents in town, we often have sandwiches for one weekend lunch since it is something easy to feed a group.
When we hosted both our families over the weekend before Christmas, we made plans to have turkey sandwiches for one of the lunches since we were having bigger meals at dinner time. I had recently received some Zesteez Tomato Chunky Chutney. I have only had tomato chutney served with grilled chicken in the past, but I thought the chutney might add an interesting flavor to our sandwiches and give them a little kick.
Using my George Foreman grill, I grilled sliced roasted deli turkey and vintage smoked cheddar sandwiches on pita bread just until the cheddar started to melt. Afterward, I added lettuce, tomato, and about one tablespoon of the tomato chutney to the sandwiches.
The chutney was a perfect touch! It added a whole new dimension of flavor to an otherwise ordinary grilled sandwich.
My dad enjoyed his sandwich so much that he requested another one. Luckily, since these things can be whipped up in around a minute or so, he didn’t have to wait long. I can foresee us keeping some sandwich fixings on hand more often so we can have these for a quick lunch when it is just the four of us at home.
If I didn’t have an indoor grill, I could have easily grilled these sandwiches on a stove top skillet or griddle. And, of course, regular bread could be used instead of pita bread.
- 1.5 lbs smoked turkey slices
- 1 lb sliced cheese such as cheddar or pepper jack
- 6 pita halves
- 1 jar Zesteez Tomato Chunky Chutney
- Sliced Tomatoes
- Other sandwich fixings (optional)
- Preheat indoor grill, such as a George Foreman sandwich grill or griddle.
- Inside each pita, place 1-2 slices of turkey and 1-2 slices of cheese.
- Place 2-3 sandwiches onto the grill and close the lid.
- Lift lid every 30 seconds or so to see if cheese has started to melt.
- Once cheese has started to melt, remove the sandwiches before the cheese runs out onto the grill.
- Carefully lift one side of the pita bread to add lettuce and tomato.
- Drizzle 1 tbsp of chutney inside sandwich.
- Close pita.
- Serve with chips or fruit.
