Tired of Turkey?

We eat a lot of turkey sandwiches around here for lunch it seems. Sometimes, it's nice to switch the old lunch routine up a bit. Here's a good sandwich spread made with a can of white beans!

Sandwich Spread
1 15 ounce can white beans, drained and rinsed (I used cannellini, but you could use garbanzos, great northern, etc.
1/2 cup finely chopped celery
1/4 cup finely chopped green onions
1 dill pickle, chopped up
whole wheat bread*
stone ground mustard
Texas Champagne Hot Sauce or other fave brand

I whirled my can of beans in my mini food processor and then mixed that in a bowl with the celery, onions, and pickle. If mixture seems dry to you, you could add a bit of light mayo. Chill to blend flavors.

Spread bread with mustard, if desired. Put whatever amount of spread on the bread that looks good to you and add lettuce and tomatoes. Add hot sauce if you like :-)

*Really good bread is critical for this sandwich. I have found a wonderful brand that I get at Arbor Farms from Avalon Bakery in Detroit. The bread is heavenly--a lot of whole grain varieties with a good crust--yum! This particular loaf is their Motown Multi-grain


  1. i also eat a lot of turkey sandwiches! i learned that from your husband. did he let you serve that sandwich without toasting the bread?
