Okay, so I'm totally a sandwich girl.
I think they're one of the greatest things on earth. You can make them any which way you please, combining tons of different flavor types, all sorts of breads (gluten-free for me!), cheese, textures, meats, vegges. Grilled, toasted or just left alone. They're just sooo good!!
Ahh, I could go on forever and ever about my obsession with sandwiches.
But first things first, we need to talk about what make this sandwich so special. And this one is all about the toppings (and the fabulous gluten-free bread).
Well, we mind as well just list them out:
- Numero uno: this is hands down the best gluten-free bread I've ever had.
- Numero dos: this sammy is open faced. Meaning it has fewer calories, is way less filling, but is still just as tasty as its two-slice counterpart.
- Numero tres: it's piled-high with veggies. Fresh, local, organic veggies.
- Numero cuatro: the spreads are to die for. On the base we have a cauliflower hummus, with creamy, peppered goat cheese on top.
- And numero cinco: the slices of organic, smoked turkey breast are the icing on this gluten-free cake (so to speak) – flavorful and delicious!
Sandwiches are great for so many reasons. They're portable, easy to assemble, and crazy, crazy good. Give me a sandwich any time of day – breakfast, lunch, dinner or snacktime – and I'm a happy little lady.
Open Faced Turkey Sandwich
- 2 slices gluten-free bread or bread of your choosing, lightly toasted
- 2 tablespoons hummus I used this recipe
- 5 - 6 slices of fresh zucchini cucumber would also work
- 4 oz goat cheese
- 4 slices fresh tomato
- 1/4 lb about 5 - 6 slices turkey meat (or deli meat of your choice)
- 2 pinches sprouts
- Salt & red pepper to taste
- Spread 1 tablespoon hummus on each slice of bread. Top with zucchini and sprinkle with goat cheese. Add tomatoes and turkey meat and garnish with sprouts. Sprinkle with salt and hot pepper.

I love sprouts on my sandwiches like that. All piled high, mmmmm!
Oh me too! They’re the best 🙂
Do you deliver to Alaska? 🙂 That looks amazing! I haven’t had breakfast yet this morning, so my mouth is totally watering. LOL…
Thanks for sharing this at Whole Food Fridays! Enjoy your weekend!
Ha! Thanks Megan, glad you like the looks of it. It would make a splendid savory breakfast (although at this point I’m sure you’ve already eaten something delicious!).
Happy Weekend to you!
I’m a sandwich fanatic too, it’s the little things in life 🙂
Aren’t they the best? I just need to perfect some gfree bread next so I can have them anytime I want!
Sandwiches are great anytime of the day.
I couldn’t agree more!!
Your gluten free bread link is broken. I would really love the recipe.
Jennifer – the link should now be fixed, but it’s actually not a recipe. It’s a local bakery who makes the most delicious gluten-free bread I’ve ever tasted. Way better than anything store bought. I did however make a fabulous french bread this weekend and hope to be sharing the recipe with you soon 🙂
The sprouts on top look so fresh and delicious! My boyfriend and I are all about open-face sandwiches…for some reason, the extra peice of bread is just too much even if it is gluten free. Your open facer looks gorgeous and tasty!
Thanks, Julia! You totally have the right idea about open faced sandwiches. They’re so tasty (and so much less filling)!
What a lovely and wholesome sandwich!
Thank you, Angie!
They all sound great! I love quinoa!
