So, as I was trying to answer the, “What’s for dinner?” question once again. I went with a super Sandwich creation, for Super Bowl Sunday. I have to satisfy some very good sized appetites and keep them diet-friendly for low-carb, keto style. With several of us needing these requirements for our health, it makes satisfying both regular and special diets a challenge. It’s an even better one when you can satisfy both, without sacrificing taste. I’ve been told by everyone who has them they are better than the sub shops and Deli’s make. So here’s my recipe for a great sandwich.
1 medium purple onion sliced thin
1 green bell pepper
1 lg beef steak slicing tomato
1 medium head Green Leaf Lettuce
1 – 16oz pkg deli-sliced turkey breast
1 -16oz pkg deli-sliced black forest ham ( I like the Land O Frost Brand)
8 oz extra sharp sliced cheddar cheese
8 oz sliced aged swiss cheese
16oz Bacon Cheddar Ranch dip
12oz sliced bacon cooked extra crispy
New York-style Rye Bread Or Dark Pumpernickle or low carb alternative
I got 7 full-size sandwiches from 1 loaf and had meat and cheeses left over. If your crowd is bigger plan accordingly.
Spread 1 tsp Bacon Cheddar Ranch dip on each slice of bread.
Layer on dip onion slices on one, bell pepper on the other. Sounds easy but the order is important so it doesn’t slide out of your sandwich.
Next comes turkey breast folded and evenly layered. (I put 4-5 on onion side to build)
Add 2 full slices of Swiss cheese
1.5 slices of super crispy bacon
Thin sliced tomatoes
1 slice extra sharp cheddar
4-5 slices black forest ham
Cover with little yellow mustard
Add Green Leaf Lettuce
Top with second dip and bell pepper bread. Cut in half to make easier to hang on to. Quarters work too, especially for made up trays. We added whole wheat original Sunchips with a little of the dip.
