Delicious and easy open faced sandwiches, drizzled with a bit of homemade creamy honey mustard poppy seed sauce. 



  • 5 slices artisan bread oval works best (I used Cranberry Pumpkin Seed)
  • 200 g Lilydale┬« Oven Roasted Carved Turkey Breast
  • 3-5 slices cooked bacon slices
  • 1 cup apples slices from one large apple
  • 1 1/4 cup shredded aged white cheddar


  • 2 tsp honey
  • 2 tsp apple cider vinegar
  • 2 Tbsp mayonnaise or Greek yogurt
  • 1 tsp Dijon mustard
  • 1 tsp poppy seeds
  • Salt and freshly ground pepper


  1. Cook your bacon until crisp (or start with ready-cooked bacon slices). Use 1/2 - 1 slice of bacon per sandwich.
  2. Preheat your oven broiler, with the rack 6-8 inches from the heat source.
  3. Meanwhile, prepare the sauce by combining all the ingredients in a small bowl and whisking together with a fork until smooth and creamy. Set aside.
  4. Place your bread slices on a baking sheet. Place under hot broiler and toast until golden. Flip bread slices over and toast the other side as well. Remove from oven, leaving broiler on.
  5. Top toasted bread slices with Lilydale® Oven Roasted Carved Turkey Slices. Top with a half or full slice of cooked bacon. Scatter some apple slices over-top. Drizzle about a tablespoon of the sauce over the sandwich, then top each with about 1/4 cup of shredded cheddar.

  6. Place under broiler just until cheese is melted. Remove from oven and enjoy!
