Turkey Caprese Sandwich

I use to live by my sister-in-law and she would make sandwiches often and share them with me. I moved away about a year ago and have craved all of them since. This is one of them and it is so delicious. We made 24 of these and cut them in half for a family get together. They are gourmet and wonderful.

Ingredients (per sandwich):
1 asiago bagel, split and toasted
1 clove garlic
2 slices turkey
fresh mozzarella cheese
1/2 roma tomato, sliced thinly
1/8 purple onion, sliced really thin
1 sprig fresh basil
kosher salt
10 drops olive oil


Split and toast Asiato Bagel. As soon as you remove bagel from toaster, rub with a clove of garlic on the inside of each half. Put mayonnaise on each half. Put two slices of turkey on bottom piece of bagel. Top turkey with fresh mozzarella pieces. Add three slices of tomato. Put sliced onion on top of tomato. Roll up a leaf of basil and cut into strips. Put strips of basil on top of onions. Drizzle olive oil all over onions and basil. Sprinkle kosher salt all over. Top with other half and enjoy!

*I bought the bagels, fresh mozzarella, tomatoes, and turkey at Costco. It is an easy sandwich to make; it just sounds complicated. I also cut the bagels in half and laid them out on a cookie sheet and broiled them for 30 seconds or so.

These were so scrumptious! I wish I had the ingredients to make one for lunch. They were also very filling. Yummy.

These sandwiches were mouthwateringly good. My older kids have been asking for sandwiches with that kind of cheese again. Delicious!
