This Sourdough Turkey Melt Recipe is so simple and yet so incredibly flavorful. It’s a play on Denny’s Super Bird Melt and I really think you are going to love it!

Ingredients for Sourdough Turkey Melt Recipe

Just a few simple ingredients make up this sandwich. You’ll need:

The first step is to liberally spread mayonnaise on both slices of the sandwich.

Next up, a Swiss slice again on both pieces of bread.

Top that with a generous layer of turkey slices.

Cooked bacon slices are next.

And finally, slices of tomato. I like to season with salt and pepper, to taste.

Place the top on and give a light press.

I like using a softened, salted butter and spread evenly.

Add butter side down into a hot skillet and butter the top slice. I love this skillet (*affiliate link) because literally nothing sticks! I use it for everything.

Once you get a golden browned bread, it’s time to flip. Give the bread a good press.

Once the sandwich is golden on both sides, remove to a cutting board to slice.

Serve with pickles, waffle fries or chips and garnish with fresh parsley. Enjoy! 🙂
