  • For each sandwich:
  • Heat oven to 450 degrees.
  • In a cake pan or lasagna pan, place 1 slice of toast per sandwich (if you have some kind of single serving baking dishes, use them).

Notes

This is a Pittsburgh tradition, a great way to use leftover turkey, freshly-made turkey or sliced turkey from the deli.

The sandwich was originally created by Frank Blandis. This recipe makes a lot of sandwiches (about 6).
