Recipe 15: Turkey Club

Hi! Hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving holiday! Sorry I'm a little late writing this blog. We've recently had a new addition to our family! A little baby boy, 8 lbs 9 oz, came just 4 days before Thanksgiving.

Ever since his arrival, our days have blended one into the other. I haven't done much cooking at all the past 2 weeks. Thankfully, my mother-in-law cooked an extra turkey breast for Thanksgiving and let us have it. So we've been feasting on turkey and take-out.

One night I felt like experimenting and decided to make us turkey club sandwiches for supper. I got out my camera and started creating. Unfortunately, my kitchen island was taken over by bottles, formula, and other baby stuff, so that's why the photos look a little different this time. And I think I was half asleep when I made these, so the sandwiches don't look very pretty...

Here are the ingredients for making two sandwiches:

Cooked turkey breast
3 slices sandwich bread
6 slices of bacon
1 tomato
2 slices sharp cheddar cheese
Salt & pepper
8 toothpicks

Step 1: Cook bacon in microwave or skillet until brown and crispy, then drain on paper towels. While bacon is cooking, slice tomato and peel off a few leaves of lettuce.

Step 2: Toast bread and lay the slices out in order: Top, middle, and bottom. Cover bottom slices with mayo.

Step 3: Place turkey slices on top of the bottom bread slices. Sprinkle with a little slat and pepper and then top with lettuce.

Step 4: Slather mayo on the bottom of the middle slices of bread and place on top of the lettuce. Spread more mayo on top of the middle slices of bread. Then top with tomato slices, bacon, and cheese.

Step 5: Spread mayo on the top slices and finish the sandwiches by placing them on top of the cheese. Secure with 4 toothpicks and quarter the sandwich.

There you go! Pretty simple, but yummy.

Next week I'll post my steakhouse green bean recipe. I've already typed it out, I just have to take some photos of the process.

Sorry if I missed any typos today. I'm working on very, very, very, very, very little sleep thanks to our new little turkey.
