Turkey Dagwoods

(1 Votes)

You don't need to be a comic strip hero to build this jaw-dropping Turkey Dagwood sandwich, but you'll sure be a real-life hero to your gang when you serve this classic, piled-high picnic sandwich favorite!

What You'll Need:
  • Mayonnaise
  • 8 slices sourdough bread, toasted
  • 2 ripe avocados, peeled and mashed (see Note)
  • 8 lettuce leaves
  • 8 (1/4-inch-thick) slices deli turkey breast or 1 package shortcuts turkey
  • 4 (1-ounce) slices Monterey Jack or provolone cheese
  • 8 tomato slices
  • 8 red onion slices
  • 8 bacon slices, cooked until crisp
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • Sweet pickles, optional
What To Do:
  1. Spread mayonnaise on toast. Layer mashed avocado, lettuce, turkey, cheese, tomato, onion and bacon on 4 slices toast.
  2. Sprinkle with salt and pepper then top with remaining toast. Garnish with sweet pickles, if desired. Serve immediately.

Try this clean and easy way to mash avocados: Place peeled avocado halves in a resealable plastic freezer bag, seal bag and squeeze away!
