Though I am constantly seeking out and creating strange and exciting new sandwiches, I have a confession to make. I pretty much eat the same turkey sandwich for lunch every day. I don't have to think about it, and it's delicious, and it's something to look forward to in the middle of the work day.
I bring the ingredients to the office and assemble them on site. It's a very simple yet comforting combination of texture, flavor, and temperature. I start with a slice of wheat bread, spread with mustard and topped with turkey. On top of the turkey, I put sliced cucumber and cheddar, swiss, or provolone cheese (depending on the week), then I put that and the other slice of bread in the toaster oven for a few minutes, until it's melted and toasted. Then, lettuce, the crucial addition of sprouts, and a bit more mustard on top. Delicious. Click through the photo gallery for a tribute to my daily turkey.
