Toasted Turkey and Ham Sandwich

Build your own fancy deli sandwich at home!  This sandwich is incredible—simple but incredible!  It’s loaded with turkey and ham, don’t you hate the sandwiches that are so skimpy with the meats?  It’s the centerpiece of the sandwich.  With that said quality meats mean a quality sandwich. You can use regular lunchmeat, but I definitely recommend going to the deli counter or even a specialty grocery deli if you have one near you. It’s worth it!

The turkey sandwich is a lunchtime staple, but doesn’t it get boring sometimes? Once you make this Toasted Turkey and Ham Sandwich, you’ll never go back to your stale sandwich. With just a few more minutes and upgraded ingredients, you can make your own deli-level sandwich (for a fraction of the price, too!). It’s worth the extra effort to have a lunch that you genuinely enjoy, instead of just eating something basic and fast to keep you going. Try this sandwich with your favorite toppings and remixes, like salami and pepperoncini or bacon and avocado.

Holiday Ham Leftover Sandwich

My favorite thing about this sandwich is that it gives me the perfect use for my leftover spiral-sliced ham.  I often dice any ham we have left and freeze it.  If I’m really lazy about it, I will even do it in the food processor, although I do prefer it diced by hand because you can determine the size of the dice.  It just takes a bit longer.  I also used my leftover ham for ham and cheese salads, ham eggs, or ham pizza.  So don’t throw that leftover ham out—there are hundreds of uses for it and it freezes so well!

Toasted Turkey and Ham Sandwich

Easy to make sandwich filled with both turkey and ham and toasted to golden brown perfection.
Servings: 1
Prep5 minutes
Cook5 minutes
Ready in: 10 minutes


  • 2 1 " slices french bread , sliced on a bias
  • Mayonnaise , whipped cream cheese or mustard, for spreading
  • 3 oz . thinly sliced , peppered deli turkey (best is Board Head, Columbus brand or Jennie O)
  • 1/4 cup finely diced ham (I used leftover spiral sliced Honey Baked ham)
  • 1/4 cup shredded Mozzarella cheese
  • 2 slices ripe avocado
  • 3 slices Roma tomatoes
  • 1/8 tsp Italian seasoning
  • 1 leaf Green Leaf lettuce or Iceberg lettuce


  • Heat a large non-stick saucepan over medium low heat. Butter pan and toast one (or both side if preferred) of each slice of bread until toasted and golden. Remove bread from heat and dress bread with mayonnaise, whipped cream cheese or mustard as desired, top one slice with lettuce and set aside.
  • Return pan to heat, butter pan again and layer turkey slices into pan. Cook turkey until lightly golden on bottom (only takes about 1 minute), then flip turkey using a spatula. Remove from heat and top turkey with shredded Mozzarella cheese, sprinkle with ham, then layer with avocado slices, followed by tomato slices, then sprinkle with with Italian seasoning. Return to heat and cook until cheese has melted and bottom of turkey is lightly golden. Using the spatula, carefully lift out layered sandwich filling and lay on top of sliced bread containing lettuce. Top with remaining slice. Serve immediately (you may want to cut it in half to be able to eat this one =).
