Welcome to the second installment of Fireside Sandwich Chats, the video series where we discuss, make, and eat…drum roll please…SANDWICHES! Every episode we take a boring, old sandwich and make it into something spectacular. By a fireplace. With a bow tie.
Check it out this video, where we make a turkey and cheese sandwich using blue cheese and strawberry preserves. Then use the recipe to make your own!

He blogs about college, cooking and the art of sandwich making – among other things – at his blog Dorm Room Dinner. Follow on Twitter @dormroomdinner.
Roast Turkey Sandwich with Blue Cheese and Strawberry Preserves
Makes 1 sandwich
Blue cheese goes surprisingly well with roasted turkey. If the strawberry preserves sound a little too out of the ordinary for you, try replacing them with cranberry relish or caramelized onions.
2 slices sandwich bread, such as sourdough
1 1/2 tablespoons strawberry preserves
3-4 slices roast turkey
1 tablespoon crumbled blue cheese
Preheat the broiler of your oven on high.
Place one slice of bread on a work surface. Spread on the preserves and top with the turkey. Top with an even layer of the blue cheese and place, open faced, on a baking sheet.
Place under the broiler 4-6 minutes until the cheese is bubbling. In the meantime, toast the other slice of bread in the toaster. Remove the sandwich from the broiler, top with the toasted slice of bread, and serve at once!
