Sandwich Monday - Low Carb & Grain Free

It was an extremely nasty day here today. It was dark, foggy, raining, and cold all day long. It was really great to have a nice hot bowl of my slow cooker Spicy Beef & Cabbage Soup for lunch today. 

When I got home this evening, I just wasn't in the mood to cook for some reason. be perfectly honest, I actually thought about making chicken cutlets with lemon, butter and capers. Well, until I spotted the plate of my Sesame Seed Sandwich Rolls sitting on the counter. I enjoyed last night's soup and sandwich dinner so much that I decided to have a turkey sandwich for dinner instead. After all, I already had everything needed to make them...the tomatoes were already sliced and my romaine was already washed and waiting for me. LOL Just so I wouldn't feel totally lazy and useless tonight, I decided to incorporate just a touch of the flavors from the chicken cutlet meal that I originally envisioned for a hot second. 

So, I simply mixed a couple tablespoons of olive oil mayonnaise with some freshly squeezed lemon juice (about 1 teaspoon) and then stirred in about 1 tablespoon of capers to make a "Lemon-Caper Mayo" topping to put on my turkey sandwich. It turned out great and added a bit of pizzazz to my turkey sandwich. I snapped a few photos below. If you haven't tried my Sesame Seed Sandwich Rolls yet...try them. I swear you will never again miss sandwiches or burgers with buns. Enjoy!

Our granddaughter in law really liked these. Especially the ones with poppy seed since i was out of sesame seeds. The were a little small for a sandwich since I only had a whoopie pan. She ate it with butter like a soft bagel she said.

Hi Charlotte, sweet! Love that she enjoyed them. Yes, I'm sure a whoopie pan would make them pretty small but might be okay for a child. That's why I used the muffin top pan that only has 6 wells. They are perfect sized for burgers and sandwiches. So happy your granddaughter in law liked them! :-)
