Your family is guaranteed to love this twist on the classic sandwich. Instead of a sweet, barbecue-style sauce, browned turkey, sautéed mushrooms, and wilted kale go into a white sauce made rich with nutty Swiss cheese. It’s creamy, comforting, and downright irresistible. Be prepared to abandon eating the sandwiches out of hand; they are so full of creamy filling that the whole thing is likely to turn into a knife and fork affair. Adults might enjoy a splash of hot sauce, so be sure to put a bottle on the table. Steamed broccoli would be an easy and perfect accompaniment.

2 cups thinly sliced kale
