  • 1 medium red sweet pepper, seeded and cut into 1/4-inch rings
  • 1 medium green sweet pepper, seeded and cut into 1/4-inch rings
  • 1 medium sweet red or yellow onion, halved and thinly sliced
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 8 1/2- to 3/4-inch slices sourdough bread
  • 1/4 cup apple butter
  • 1/4 cup honey mustard
  • 4 slices Swiss cheese (3 ounces)
  • 4 slices thick-cut bacon, cooked and drained
  • 4 slices American or cheddar cheese (3 ounces)
  • 8 -10 ounces sliced cooked turkey breast
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil


  1. In a large bowl, combine pepper rings and onion slices; drizzle with 1 tablespoon oil and toss to evenly coat. Transfer vegetables to a grill basket.
  2. For a charcoal grill, place grill basket directly over medium coals. Grill for 8 to 10 minutes or until vegetables are crisp-tender, turning to brown evenly. (For a gas grill, preheat grill. Reduce heat to medium. Grill as above.)
  3. Preheat an electric sandwich press, a covered indoor grill, a grill pan, or a large skillet.
  4. To assemble sandwiches, spread one side of 4 of the bread slices with apple butter and one side of remaining 4 bread slices with honey mustard. Layer the Swiss cheese, grilled vegetables, bacon, American cheese and turkey on the 4 bread slices with apple butter. Top with remaining 4 bread slices, mustard side down. Brush both sides of each sandwich with the 3 tablespoons oil.
  5. Place sandwiches (half at a time, if necessary) in the sandwich press or indoor grill; cover and cook about 6 minutes or until bread is toasted. (If using a grill pan or skillet, place sandwiches on grill pan. Weight sandwiches down with a heavy skillet and grill 2 to 3 minutes or until bread is toasted. Turn sandwiches over, weight down and grill until remaining side is toasted.)
  6. To serve, cut sandwiches in half and serve immediately. Makes 4 sandwiches.
