These Jalapeño Popper Baked Turkey Sandwiches are a delicious pairing of two favorites! They combine all the flavors of jalapeño poppers with classic turkey sandwiches. Perfect for game day or any day, these sandwiches are easy to assemble, great for feeding a crowd, and sure to be a hit!
So I had an interesting conversation with Nora the other day. She was talking about friends and plans and playdates (the girl has a rocking social life) and she told me, quite matter of factly, that she probably can’t have playdates with Megan anymore.
Now, I was a little taken aback, since Megan is one of her best friends from school. So I asked her why….and do you know what she told me? “Because I liked her with long hair.” Ummmm….say what?
Needless to say, we had a little talk. About friendship and hair styles and the fact that we really don’t choose our friends based on the way they look. She sat there and listened….and after a while she turned to me and said, “Okay, I do like her hair. I guess we can still have playdates.” Clearly she was not quite getting it.
Since I didn’t feel like I could just leave it alone, and risk her holding onto this idea, I kept going: “Nora…it doesn’t matter if you like her hair or not. Even if you don’t like her hair, you can still be friends.” And suddenly it clicked. The next thing I knew, she was chanting, “Who likes people even after they get haircuts and look different? Me!!!” Whew. One important life lesson, on the books.
By now you’re probably wondering what this little story has to do with these Jalapeño Popper Baked Turkey Sandwiches. Well, the answer is simple! Because these delicious sandwiches are made on NEW King’s Hawaiian Jalapeño Rolls….which, as you can imagine, look just a little different than the original. But here’s the deal: they’re still completely awesome, just like the King’s Hawaiian we know and love!
In fact, I would argue that they’re an essential ingredient in these Jalapeño Popper Baked Turkey Sandwiches. Even though the sandwiches are loaded with plenty of delicious things like turkey and cheese and bacon and jalapeños, it’s the sweet roll packed with extra jalapeño punch that really makes them SO delicious!
Whether you’re a jalapeño fan or not, I promise you will love these Jalapeño Popper Baked Turkey Sandwiches! The King’s Hawaiian Jalapeño Rolls add a delicious jalapeño flavor without being overly spicy, and the end result is a sandwich that’s perfect for sharing with friends. Regardless of hairstyle.
