Pineapple-Turkey Sandwich

Yield 6 sandwiches


  • 1 fresh pineapple, cored
  • 2 tablespoons butter or margarine
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 (8-ounce) container chive-and-onion-flavored cream cheese, softened
  • 2 (8-ounce) French bread loaves, split lengthwise*
  • 1 pound sliced turkey
  • 1 (8-ounce) package Swiss cheese slices

How to Make It

  1. Cut pineapple into 1/2-inch-thick slices; cut slices in half.

  2. Melt butter in a skillet over medium heat; add pineapple, and saute 5 minutes. Sprinkle with salt and pepper.

  3. Spread cream cheese evenly on each bread half. Layer bottom bread halves evenly with pineapple, turkey, and cheese; top with remaining bread halves.

  4. Cook sandwiches on a lightly greased griddle over medium heat 5 minutes on each side or until bread is toasted and cheese melts. Cut sandwiches into thirds.

  5. *For testing purposes only, we used 1 (16-ounce) package Pepperidge Farm Twin French loaves.
