There’s nothing more tasty than a really great sandwich. I mean it’s a meal when you really think about it. Load it with veggies for your greens and added nutrition. Then pick out a variety of meat{s} and maybe cheeses if it suits your fancy. Maybe throw in some fruit. And, it’s all between a couple of pieces of bread.

This french madam turkey sandwich, just my version of a croque madame without the egg, errs on the different side. Of course, that’s what’s so fun about food. Venturing out and trying new combos, ingredients and ways to approach your traditional favorites. Now, don’t get me wrong, sometimes I just want a regular turkey sandwich. Yeah, on soft bread with mayo, tomatoes, lettuce, salt and pepper. But, life is too short to always do things and eat things the same way. So, tiptoe onto the wild side!

Another thing about this sandwich, I’m sure hoping you’ll love this sriracha spiced maple syrup. I just thought when I was dreaming up this outrageous turkey sandwich some syrup would be great on that sausage. And, since the bread is almost like a French toast, then let’s have syrup! Hope you enjoy! And, if you’re looking for a fabulous meatball for a sandwich, look no further. Yep, French Onion Meatballs! xoxo ~ally

Yield: One Really Yummy Sandwich!


  • 2 Tbl. Maple syrup
  • ¼ tsp sriracha
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 4 Tbl. Cream
  • 2 slices thick cut artisan bread
  • ½ Tbl. Butter
  • 1/3 cup arugula, loosely packed
  • 4 slices deli sliced turkey
  • 2 sausage links, cooked & sliced lengthwise in halves (they will lay flat on the sandwich)
  • 3 apple slices, very thinly sliced from the center of the apple, leave skin on
  • 1 ½ slices thick cut hickory smoked bacon, fried, drained & cut into 3 half pieces


  • Combine the maple syrup and sriracha in a small bowl and blend together. Set aside.
  • Combine in a shallow pie plate the egg and cream, blend together. Add the bread and soak each side. You’re making French toast!
  • Heat a medium sized cast iron skillet over medium heat, melt the butter. Put the bread slices and grill on each side about 2 to 3 minutes or until golden brown. Remove to a dinner plate.
  • On the bottom slice of the sandwich bread, put the arugula. Fold over the turkey slices and put on top overlapping each somewhat. Drizzle one-third of the maple syrup mixture.
  • Add the four sausage halves then the apple slices. Drizzle another third of the maple syrup mixture.
  • Add the bacon slices and the top of the sandwich. Serve the remaining maple syrup mixture as a dip for the sandwich or to drizzle on top.


Make more spicy maple syrup and drizzle on top the sandwich. Of course, you'll need a fork and knife!
