7 Sinfully Delicious, Savory Sandwiches…

The Candid Appetite

There is nothing better than a good sandwich.  Warm toasty bread, juicy meats and savory condiments…or a crispy baguette with bright herbs and seasonings and fresh vegetables.  You can dress it up with steak or bring it down home with pulled pork and slaw…I love a good sandwich.  I’m currently experimenting with juicing, subbing lunch and/or breakfast for a big glass of fresh squeezed sludge.  Don’t get me wrong, I love the burst of energy I get and I feel better, and lighter…but while I’m drinking it I’m imagining it’s one of these sandwiches.

Simply Goumet

Simply Goumet

For each sandwich you will need:

3 pieces of bread
3 slices of ham
3 slices of turkey
1 or 2 slices of Cheddar cheese
1 or 2 slices of Swiss cheese
Saran Wrap

Dusting of Powdered Sugar
Raspberry or Blackberry Jam

To Deep Fry:

Pancake mix
About 2 inches of oil in the bottom of a large pot

When I make this sandwich, I decide how many I need and make them all together.  I lay my bread out, layer the cheese and meat and then stack.  Your layers will be: bread, swiss, turkey, swiss, bread, cheddar, ham, cheddar, bread…with me so far?  See pictures, it helps.

Take a piece of Saran Wrap and place a sandwich in the middle.  You want to squish the sandwich and then wrap it tight.  The sandwich should be half of what you started with.
