Apple Cheddar Turkey Melts

What do I need to Make Apple Cheddar Turkey Melts

 

These Apple Cheddar Turkey Melts are only 5 ingredients!

Ciabatta Rolls – Good bread makes a great sandwich. Ciabatta rolls are perfect for this sandwich because they are soft on the inside with large pockets to hold the apple butter and melted cheese

Extra Sharp Cheddar Cheese – The extra sharp cheddar gives the sandwich a little zing that pairs well with the sweet apple butter.

Leftover Turkey – thick slices of leftover turkey work perfectly for this sandwich. If you don’t have leftover turkey you can use thick sliced deli turkey (3-4 slices).

Granny Smith Apple Slices – Slice them thin so they are easy to bite into, they add a really nice crunch factor!

Homemade Apple Butter – It’s the secret sauce that takes the sandwich up a notch! If you don’t have time to make homemade, store bought will work too.
