Peppered Bacon-Wrapped Turkey Pub Sandwiches
This recipe comes from the kitchen of one of 100 lucky home cooks, who will head to Nashville in November to compete in the 47th Pillsbury Bake-Off Contest. Contestants will vie for the iconic $1 million dollar Grand Prize. For the first time, America’s vote will be combined with the judges’ decisions to determine the Grand Prize Winner.
It should be no surprise that bacon is a main ingredient in many of the dishes that were lucky enough to make it to the top 100. Pillsbury.com has kindly offered to share some of these amazing recipes with our bacon hungry fans. First up is this Peppered Bacon-Wrapped Turkey Pub Sandwiches. This turkey sandwich gives the standard chicken + bacon sandwich a run for its money! Served up on a hot Pillsbury biscuit with pepper bacon and melted cheese, it puts the “Mmm” in yummy.
This recipe is from Betty Staufenbiel of St. Louis, Missouri. Looks like Betty knows a thing or two about how to craft a sandwich.
