Substitutions and Variations

  • Turkey – We used deli turkey meat in this recipe. But this sandwich would be delicious with leftover turkey meat.
  • Bacon – Feel free to use different types of bacon. We used regular cut but you can also use thick cut or already cooked bacon.
  • Cheese – We used provolone cheese but you can also use Monterrey Jack Cheese, Pepper Jack or Mozzarella Cheese.
  • Bread – We like to make a turkey melt with Sourdough Bread, but any bread will work with this recipe. You can even use a whole grain sliced bread, rye bread or ciabatta rolls.

How to Make a Turkey Melt on a Blackstone Griddle

  • Step 1 – Preheat the Blackstone Grill over medium high heat (approximately 400 degrees F).  
  • Step 2 – Place the bacon on one side of the grill and cook until the bacon is cooked through and crispy (flipping them halfway through the cook time). Move the bacon to a cooler side of the grill.
