Nostalgic Sandwich

When is the last time that you had a turkey club sandwich? I couldn't tell you the last time that I had one. This was one of my favorites as a child. Something was just so festive about the toothpicks with colored cellophane frill! The giant sandwich, served with a tiny paper cup of coleslaw and fries cooked in a terrible for you cooking oil, was so good.

Well, I have pretty much sworn off cold cuts, except for a very rare sub sandwich splurge. I never eat turkey from the supermarket deli - yuck!

I was so in the mood for a turkey club sandwich - I had beautiful lettuce from the farm market, as well as a Jersey tomato, and bacon from the Amish market. So, I headed over to the local turkey farm store (Hinck's free range turkeys since 1938) and picked up real sliced turkey breast. 3 slices of white toast, turkey, bacon, lettuce, tomato slices, and a smear of mayo -delicious!


  1. I love a good turkey's the perfect sandwich! As a kid I also enjoyed the pretty toothpicks! :)

  2. My friend from Manasquan turned me onto Hinck's Turkey Farm.
    I LOVE A TURKEY CLUB or a TURKEY SLOPPY JOE w/ Russian and Swiss cheese, but it has to be REAL turkey, not that deli meat in disguise!
