While strolling through Fresh Market a few weeks ago, I stumbled upon Stonewall Kitchen’s Bourbon Molasses Mustard. Bourbon Molasses Mustard? I must try this! I picked up some whole grain ciabatta bread, deli sliced smoked turkey and of course the bourbon molasses mustard and I was on my way to tasty sandwich goodness.

Before I get to the sandwich, I’d like to share my experience at the Florida BlogCon Bloggers Conference with you. As many of you know, Ken and I attended the conference on Saturday. Ken basically tagged along but he did enjoy himself. He even participated in one of the sessions, the Google Glasses session.

We arrived at the conference just after the Keynote speech ended. I think it would have been nice to be there for that but we didn’t get up early enough to make it to it. I attended five sessions, the first being Media Kits – The Good, The Bad, and the Ugly with Katy Widrick from The other sessions I attended were as follows:

  • How Do Bloggers Make Money? – Jeanette Scott from J’s Everyday Fashion Blog
  • Taking my Blog Full Time – Julie Deily from The Little Kitchen
  • How to Sell Your Creativity Without Selling Out – Jason Headsetsdotcom (that’s really his name!)
  • The Business of Blogging: Building Relationships with Brands

Overall, I learned some valuable information at this conference, specifically pertaining to media kits and making a livable income from your blog. A couple of things that that really stood out for me that was mentioned at a couple of the sessions was to interact with your readers, respond to comments and when trying to work with brands, don’t just email the company. Pick up the phone and call. And before you contact the company, do a little research, find out names of people you need to speak with so you can address them by name when emailing or calling them. And when pitching your site, either via your media kit or when contacting a brand, don’t use the “me, me, me” tactic. Let the company know what you can do for them.

I’ll get into a little more detail in a future post (or you can email me with any questions and I will get back to you as soon as I can) but right now, I want to get to the sandwich!

Hot Turkey Sandwiches with Bourbon Molasses Mustard

Hot Turkey Sandwiches with Bourbon Molasses Mustard

Yield: 2 servings
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 5 minutes
Total Time: 10 minutes


  • 2 whole grain ciabatta loaves. I purchased mine at Fresh Market.
  • 2 slices of muenster cheese
  • 1/2 lb smoked sliced deli turkey (I purchased mine at the Fresh Market deli counter.)
  • 2 - 3 tbsp of Stonewall Kitchen Bourbon Molasses Mustard
  • 4 sandwich slice dill pickles
  • 2 tsp mayonnaise
  • Panini Grill Pan with a press device


  1. Heat a panini grill pan over medium heat. While heating, place the press device on the pan to heat it.
  2. Slice loaves in half.
  3. Spread 1 tsp of mayonnaise on the inner bottom slices of the bread loaves.
  4. Assemble the sandwiches: Place the pickles, turkey, 1 to 1 1/2 tbsp of mustard and then the cheese on each of the bottom slices of the ciabatta loaves. Then spread a little more mustard on the inner top slices of the bread loaves.
  5. Spray the heated panini grill pan with cooking spray. Then spray the tops of the ciabatta loaves with cooking spray. Place the sandwiches on the panini grill pan. Press with the panini press and cook until the cheese melts. Check the bottom of the bread to make sure it doesn't start to burn. Turn down the heat of the stove if needed.

  1. You find the best condiments! The flavors are incredible. I have to pin this for a quick weeknight meal!

    • Thank you, Tanya! You gotta try this mustard if you can find it! Haha, I am kinda a condiment queen. I can spot good ones from a mile away. Well, actually, I’ve tried some not so good ones but they looked interesting when I saw them in the store! Hope you are having a great weekend!

  2. I want this sandwich and it’s only 8:14 in the morning! That looks so good, Julie, and I’ve already got it pinned.

  3. Seriously, we must have a very similar flavor palate or something because your recipes always are bookmark worthy! They are beautiful but very easy to follow and satisfying to my table of two! Thanks for a great one, again :)

  4. Would so welcome any valuable information that you could share with us about the conference! Sounds like a lot of good info! This sandwich is a keeper!

  5. Yum! I love a good turkey sandwich, these will be a great way to use up my leftover thanksgiving turkey!

  6. Duuuuuude. That sandwich is stellar! Bourbon in the mustard!? I need to borrow your store. Thanks for the fun tips– it sounds like you went to some great sessions and learned a lot! Looking forward to hearing more!

  7. That bourbon molasses mustard sounds out of this world amazing, I wish we could get them here! And these sandwiches look scrumptious too. I love how they’re so easy to make and healthy-ish too! ;-)
    Have a great Sunday, Julie! x
