Leftover wild turkey is a rare thing. But sometimes I’ll cook extra just to have some. That is particularly true when I use this sous vide recipe for herbed turkey breast.

Slice the sous vide turkey breast thinly across the grain.

It slices extremely well and makes the perfect base for an outstanding sandwich.

Sous vide turkey is perfect for a turkey bacon ranch sandwich.

This is a simple sandwich. It consists of sliced turkey, good sharp cheddar cheese, thick-cut bacon, fresh lettuce, and a sliced tomato. Dress it with ranch dressing and pile it high on a pretzel roll, and you have yourself a sandwich you’d pay handsomely for in a restaurant.

Pile the sliced turkey atop a toasted bun.

Since not a lot goes into this sandwich, use high-quality ingredients.

Start by toasting the bun lightly. Cook the bacon until it is nice and crispy. Slice the wild turkey breast into thin cutlets, across the grain for tenderness. Pile the turkey on the bottom toasted bun, then add a slice of sharp cheddar and the bacon. Run the sandwiches under the broiler to melt the cheese.

Top with ranch dressing, sliced tomato, heirloom if available for best flavor, and crisp leaf lettuce.
