Open Faced Turkey Sandwich (GF)

Jump To Recipe

Open Faced Turkey Sandwich | Gluten-Free | Queen of Quinoa

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:

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.

  1. 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)!

    • 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 🙂

  2. 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!
