So tonight is a recipe from a promotional Minnegasco Modern Living Center recipe book from my childhood. Mom says it's from somewhere between 1955 and 1962. Tonight we're pairing these with baked potatoes, but you can serve alongside leftover veg from Thanksgiving, if you have any!
1 baseball sized sweet onion, diced small
2-3 cups diced leftover turkey, white meat, dark meat or a mixture
3/4 c mayo
3-4 tbsp prepared yellow mustard
1 tbsp sugar
2-3 tbsp milk
1 loaf good bread ( I prefer white for this, because it is what I grew up with)
Sliced cheese. We always used Velveta, but now I prefer a nice colby or mild cheddar.
In a large bowl, combine the mayo, sugar and mustard. Add milk a little at at time until it is the consistency of salad dressing. (Do not leave out the sugar- the sugar is what binds with the milk. There should not be enough in the dressing to make it sweet) Add diced meat and onion, toss to coat. Refrigerate about 1 hour, to allow flavors to combine.
Lay slices of bread out on a cookie sheet- about 2 per person. Top with turkey mixture, spreading it to completely cover slices of bread, and then top that with sliced cheese. Place under the broiler until cheese bubbles, and edges of bread begin to toast. Serve immedieately.
