Turkey Bacon Club on Italian

 

Hot on the heels of my light, ultra-healthy, vegan Avocado Beet Wrap post Tuesday, I bring you this trifecta of meat-wich! Hey, that’s the definition of omnivore I guess. That and the significant other might walk out if all I ever fed him was veggies. Though I try…

This was of course his brain-child, since a craving for a giant dagwood-like club had hit a few days ago. So a quick trip to ALDI’s and about $20 later, I brought home enough goodies to make about 5-6 of these bad boys, rather than pay someone else the same amount for two.

These are delightful, not going to lie, and would certainly please the crowd at a picnic or BBQ. Unless of course, it’s the Vegans United of America BBQ.  (I just made that group up, and if it’s a real thing I in no way intend to mock or upset anyone. Maybe someday I’ll even join)

Ingredients:

  • 1 large roll Italian bread, cut in thirds (or several smaller individual rolls)
  • 1/2 pound turkey
  • 1/2 pound ham
  • 1 pound bacon
  • 6 slices white American cheese (or whatever kind you like)
  • 1 large tomato
  • 1/4 red onion, slivered
  • 3 large Romaine leaves
  • 1 cup sprouts
  • 1 avocado
  • Handful of peppers
  • 6 tbsp olive oil
  • 6 tbsp red wine vinegar
  • salt & pepper
  • Other toppings: parmesan cheese, mustard, mayo, balsamic vinegar, pickles, etc.

Step 1: Fry the bacon in a frying pan, let drip dry on some paper towels. Cut up any veggies you are using.

Step 2: Cut open the rolls if they aren’t already cut. Pro-move: Heat in a buttered pan until slightly crispy, or microwave 30 seconds. Layer the turkey, ham, and bacon, top with oodles of toppings and cheese. Trust me, this last part is the key. Drizzle on 2 tbsp olive oil and red wine vinegar, and sprinkle on salt & pepper to taste.

Now laugh & take pictures of your friends and family as they try to fit their mouth around this monstrous delicacy you’ve created!
