Stubb’s Turkey Melt
Author: Developed for Stubb’s by Katie, of Culinary Pirate.
  • 1 1/2 cups shredded, cooked turkey
  • 1/4 cup Stubb’s barbecue sauce or marinade of your choice
  • 2 large slices (about 4 ounces) Provolone, Gouda, mild Cheddar, or Brie cheese
  • Softened butter, as needed
  • 4 slices Italian, sourdough or rye bread
  1. In a medium bowl, evenly mix together the shredded turkey and sauce.
  2. Butter each bread slice on one side.
  3. Lay 2 slices of bread on your cutting board or counter, butter side down, and divide turkey mixture between them.
  4. Divide cheese between the two sandwiches and place on top of the turkey.
  5. Top them with the other pieces of bread, the butter side facing up.
  6. Heat a saute, cast iron or grill pan over medium heat.
  7. When the pan is hot, add enough sandwiches that can fit into the pan.
  8. Press the sandwiches down with a spatula or place a heavy pan on top of them.
  9. Cook for a minute or two, until the bread is browned, then flip and repeat the process on the other side.
  10. Remove sandwiches from pan when the cheese has melted.
  11. Let cool for a minute before slicing in half; serve warm.

  1. Thanks for sharing your delicious recipe on Turkey Melt Recipe โ€“ Perfect For Thanksgiving Leftovers! WOW! This sounds really good! I don’t have any leftovers! There was a bit left and I gave it to my in-laws after we had turkey the day after in the form of hot turkey w/gravy sandwiches. However, I saved the recipe and the next time we have turkey, I’m definitely going to make them! Thanks so much for sharing your delicious recipe with all of us! I honestly do appreciate it! Thanks again! Michele ๐Ÿ™‚
