You know what I love to do? Find little sandwich shoppes that put a creative bend on a typical sandwich. You know… a little fruit or a fantastic dressing or a creative mix of elegant deli goodies. And on a special bread… not boring old white bread. Oh. And there *always* have to be a cheese in there. Not a lot–just a thin little layer.
I so want to recreate those amazing sandwiches at lunch time and create my own. But as much as I love my local food store, they just haven’t been able to figure out how to (excuse the expression) cut the cheese to the right thinness. And I was sad. I couldn’t make the perfect sandwich that I often craved.
And then I tried Sargento’s Ultra Thin cheeses. Look at the difference between our store’s thin Swiss and Sargento’s Ultra Thin Swiss:
As soon as I saw the difference, I knew I could finally do it. I could finally create my favorites. And I did!
- Two slices multigrain bread (the kind with the thick Jewish-rye-like crust)
- Several slices of BBQ Turkey Breast from the deli. (Any turkey will do, I just like the spice in the BBQ marinade.) I like my sandwiches thick, so I layered in the turkey.
- 2 or 3 very thin slices of an apple (eat the rest next to it, or share with your kids--which, inevitably, is what always happens around here)
- Ultra Thin Sargento swiss
- 2 tablespoons whole grain dijon mustard
- 1 teaspoon honey
- Lightly toast bread slices
- Prepare dressing: Mix whole grain mustard with honey and adjust to taste. I loved that I used whole grain rather than regular mustard because it gave a little different crunch and pop of flavor to the sandwich.
- Spread dressing on both pieces of bread
- Bottom up, layer turkey (I like to fold my turkey to layer it), apple slices, 1 piece of Sargento Swiss on sandwich; top with the top piece of toast
- Toast sandwich so that cheese just melts over the apples, cut in half and enjoy
This week I do plan to create more yummy sandwiches! And for dinner…
Monday: Salmon burgers,with toppings including cucumbers, peppers and tomatoes and sweet potato fries
Tuesday:Gnocci with Chicken and Sun Dried Tomatoes
Wednesday: BBQ Meatloaf from Kimberly at Mom in the City
Weekend: Andrea’s Texican Chicken Pile-Up.
