150 g thinly sliced Schneiders® Deli Best Oven Roasted Turkey Breast

150 g thinly sliced Schneiders® Deli Best Oven Roasted Ham

8 slices country-style bread

⅓ cup red pepper jelly


4 slices jalapeno Cheddar cheese

Easy Cheese Sauce:

1 cup milk (3.25%)

3 tbsp all-purpose flour

¾ cup grated old white Cheddar cheese

1 tbsp Dijon mustard

¼ tsp ground nutmeg

¼ tsp kosher salt

¼ cup unsalted butter, softened


Easy Cheese Sauce: Whisk together milk and flour in medium saucepan; heat, whisking constantly, over medium heat until bubbling and thickened. Add cheese gradually, whisking constantly, until melted and smooth. Whisk in mustard, nutmeg, and salt. Keep warm.

Meanwhile, preheat oven to 425°F. Butter both sides of each slice of bread and place on large, rimmed baking sheet. Bake until light golden, about 6 minutes.

Flip toast over and spread half of the slices evenly with red pepper jelly. Top with turkey, ham and jalapeño cheddar cheese. Top with remaining toast slices; spoon cheese sauce over tops of sandwiches, evenly.

Meanwhile, preheat broiler. Broil sandwiches on centre rack of oven until golden, about 2 minutes.

Tips: Serve with spicy pickled beans, sweet bread & butter pickles, and/or honey Dijon mustard.
