Turkey, Bacon, and Havarti Sandwich

Stack leftover sliced turkey with cheese and other toppings on a fresh sourdough loaf to make four sandwiches in one. Havarti is a Danish cheese that is semi-soft with small irregular holes and a mild flavor. You can substitute whatever you have on hand, including Muenster or Swiss cheese for Havarti and cranberry sauce in place of bell peppers and vinaigrette.

Ingredients

  • 1 (7-inch) round sourdough bread loaf
  • 1/4 cup balsamic vinaigrette

  • 6 (1-oz.) Havarti cheese slices
  • 1 (12-oz.) jar roasted red bell peppers, drained and sliced

1. Cut top 2 inches off sourdough loaf, reserving top; hollow out loaf, leaving a 1-inch-thick shell. (Reserve center of bread loaf for other uses, if desired.)

2. Drizzle 2 Tbsp. vinaigrette evenly in bottom bread shell; layer with half each of turkey, cheese, and peppers. Repeat layers with remaining turkey, cheese, and peppers, and top with bacon. Drizzle evenly with remaining 2 Tbsp. vinaigrette, and cover with reserved bread top; press down firmly.

3. Wrap in plastic wrap, and chill at least 1 hour or up to 8 hours before serving. Cut into 4 wedges.
