Tiffany Aaron of Quitman put turkey, sweet potato, honey, mustard and watercress between two pieces of bread and won $25,000, the grand prize in the Oroweat company's annual sandwich contest.

Here's the recipe for the “Orange Kissed Turkey, Sweet Potato and Watercress Salad Sammie,” which beat out four other finalists for the prize:

Ingredients  for 2 servings


4 slices Oroweat® Whole Grains: 12 Grain bread
2 tbsp. coconut oil
1 large sweet potato, sliced into 1/4-inch rounds
Kosher salt, to taste
2 tbsp. orange juice
2 tsp raw honey
1 tsp olive oil
1 oz. watercress (approx. 1 packed cup)
1/4 cup Dijon mustard
4 oz. thinly sliced smoked turkey breast
1/4 cup chopped walnuts

Directions

Heat coconut oil in large skillet over medium/low heat. Place sweet potatoes in hot oil and sprinkle with kosher salt. Cook for 3 minutes on each side or until tender.

To make the Orange Watercress Salad: In a small bowl, whisk together orange juice, honey and olive oil. Add watercress and toss until well coated.

To assemble sandwich, spread one side of each slice of bread with Dijon mustard. Place half of turkey on one slice of bread. Top with half of the sweet potatoes, half of the Orange Watercress Salad, and half of the chopped walnuts. Top with another slice of bread, mustard side down. Repeat with remaining ingredients to make second sandwich.

Oroweat made the announcement Nov. 3, National Sandwich Day.

Aaron previously was a finalist in a Pillsbury Bake-Off competition and writes a food blog, The Secret Life of a Betty Crocker wannabe.
