A Pilgrim and a Closed Door

Here are two tantalizing turkey recipes for your left overs. Turkey leftovers are fondly referred to as turk around here. Was that sarcasm or socratic irony? Please limit your response to 50 words or less.

Pilgrim Sandwich
From The White Gull Inn
Serves 4

8 slices dark rye bread
4 T. mayonnaise
1 pound sliced or shaved cooked turkey breast

3/4 c. cranberry orange relish
4 oz. Cheddar cheese, sliced
8 lettuce leaves

Place slices or rye bread on work surface. Spread mayonnaise on 4 of the slices. Top with turkey, relish, cheese and lettuce. Cover with remaining 4 slices rye bread and cut in half to serve.

Closed Doorwich
Adapted from The White Gull Inn
Serves 4

8 slices dark rye bread
softened butter
12-16 oz. sliced turkey
1 recipe caramelized apples
4 oz. shredded mozzarella cheese, more if desired
Smoked mayonnaise

Pre-heat skillet on medium low heat.

Butter one side of each slice of rye bread. Place one slice, buttered side down in pre-heated skillet. Top with turkey, warm caramelized apples and cheese. Top with remaining slice of rye bread, buttered side up. Cook until bread is hot and toasted. Turn over. Press down on sandwich with a spatula. Cook until bread is toasted and cheese is melted. If cheese doesn't melt, remove from heat and cover briefly until the cheese is melted. Remove from skillet and cut in half. Serve immediately with smoked mayonnaise for dipping.

Variation: Used smoked turkey and apple cider mayonnaise (see below)

Caramelized Apples
Serves 4

5 large apples, peeled, cored, and sliced
2/3 c. sugar
1/4 c. butter

Placed prepared apples in mixing bowl. Add sugar and gently mix. Melt butter in a skillet over medium high heat until bubbly. Add apples. It is best if they are in a single layer. Allow the sugar to melt and apples to brown. Gently check with a spatula. Once they have browned, turn them over with a spatula. Keep cooking them until the apples are browned and the sugar is caramelized. Total cooking time is about 30 min. Be careful not to burn the apples. Reduce heat if necessary. Serve immediately.

Smoked Mayonnaise
1 c. mayonnaise
1/2 to 1 t. liquid smoke (start with 1/2 t. adjust to taste)

Blend until smooth. Can add 1 T. apple cider or apple juice or frozen apple juice concentrate.

Apple Cider Mayonnaise
1. c mayonnaise
1 T. apple cider (can use apple juice or frozen apple juice concentrate)

Blend until smooth.

Sarcasm? Irony? Or truncation?
Hard to say. Turk can refer to a person from Turkey, and after eating turkey we become people (composed) of turkey, so we might be Turks too.
I'm sticking with truncation. (Which is ironic?)
