The Gobbler Sandwich
(a copycate recipe)
El Paso has some AMAZING local restaurants, and every time I go back home to visit, there's at least 15 of them on my "must eat while i'm here" list. The Magic Pan is one of them. They are a simple soup, salad, and sandwich kind of place, but they have the BEST soups, salads, and sandwiches the world has ever known (in my opinion ;-) ). A guy from my church back home used to be a chef there (back when they were called "Flash in the Pan"). After I expressed my love for the restaurant one day, he slipped me a copy of all their best recipes! Unfortunately, I lost this copy, but I've looked at the recipe for this one sandwich (The Gobbler; my favorite) over a dozen times and I decided to try and make it based on what I remembered. All that to say, I hope you enjoy my copycat recipe!
If you have to make the focaccia, go ahead and do so. I think the best recipe is Betty Crocker's version. If you are wondering what focaccia is, it's like pizza bread. I've also used Walmart's focaccia for this recipe.
Cut up the bread in sandwich-like pieces and cut each piece in half like a sandwich. In a bowl, mix the apricot preserves (about 1 tbsp per sandwich) with a couple drops of liquid smoke. Make sure you are taste testing with a drop at a time as liquid smoke is strong. Mush up the avocado and and fill the sandwich with your ingredients in the following order: bread, apricot mixture, turkey breast, swiss cheese, avacado, bread.
Bake sandwiches in oven at 350 for 10 minutes. Best served with a soup, salad, or sweet potato fries. Enjoy!
