Turkey Bacon Sandwich

The Bird


Prep Time: 20 minuets

Cook Time: 5 Minutes per sandwich

In my first job, I worked as a line cook at the restaurant “Country Waffles”. During my time there we had a particular sandwich that was overwhelmingly popular. It grew to be one of my favorite options on the menu to cook, and even eat myself on my lunch break. So, I thought I would share this tasty treat with the world.

For this recipe, you can do a great deal of customization. You can also change the cheese, bread (if Swiss and Sourdough aren’t to you liking), and other meats, such as ham or roasting beef, to get a different taste and really make this sandwich your own. French Fries are a great side dish to go with this meal because they are super simple and quick to make.

1 package of turkey breast
1 package of Swiss Cheese (or cheese of preference)
