Oh my...I adapted this and it was heavenly. Instead of deli turkey, I grilled some simple turkey burgers. Served on ciabatta with the carmelized onions, provlone and charmoula mayo. For the mayo, I used all cilantro and smoked paprika. I'm going to thin the mayo a little (to make a salad dressing) and serve this week with a curried chickpea salad. Hubby exlaimed this the best turkey burger he's ever had!
Turkey Sandwiches with Caramelized Onions and Charmoula Mayo
A messy sandwich, but it's a treat. Warm Moroccan spices mix with sweet onions to give leftover turkey a fresh spin. Try it with a glass of barely off-dry Gewürztraminer. Prep and Cook Time: 1 hour. Notes: Make the Charmoula Mayonnaise while the onions are caramelizing. You'll have more mayo than you'll need for 4 sandwiches, but the leftovers—which keep for at least a week—are great with roast chicken or beef; broiled salmon; as a dip for poached shrimp, cracked crab, and vegetables; or over poached eggs on English muffins.
