Recipe Notes

Recipe Notes

You can use bakery bread or sandwich bread or substitute a roll or wrap. You can also make these as sliders for an appetizer or game day eats.

I like to use a chive-and-onion flavored cream cheese (it's reduced fat), but any kind will do.

I use a bag of baby spring greens, but you could use spinach, arugula or your favorite lettuce.

Pile up as much turkey as you like!
