Leftover turkey breast meat.  Mezzetta products in my pantry.  What do you do?  You create a sandwich for the 2012 Mezzetta ‘Make That Sandwich’ Contest!  ‘The Gobbler BBQ Sandwich’ is a huge combination of flavors and textures.  Healthy and robust, it can definitely qualify as a meal on a plate.  

Spicy and with some tang to it, the Mezzetta products I used in this recipe don’t even resemble their original forms, but they ratchet up the traditional BBQ sandwich to the next level of chic! Sharing this with ‘Weekend Potluck 37′ and ‘Thursday’s Treasures.
