Pepperjack Turducken Slammer



Ingredients:
4 (1/4 inch thick) slices turducken, warmed*
1 tomato, sliced
1/2 red onion, sliced
1/2 head bibb lettuce, separated into leaves
4 slices pepperjack cheese
8 slices country white bread
optional: mayo or mustard

Directions:

Place the lettuce on 4 slices of bread. Top with cheese slices, then the turducken, onion and tomato. Spread remaining slices of bread with mayo or mustard, if desired. Top with remaining bread. Serve immediately.


*I used leftover turducken I sliced while cold then warmed in a nonstick skillet for 1-2 minutes on each side. I didn't brown the slices but you want it warm enough to melt the cheese.


My thoughts:
Let's just start out by saying that this is not a sandwich for the fainthearted. It is possibly the most filling sandwich I have ever had and I am including a whole muffaletta from Central Bakery in that claim. Anyway, when I ended up with quite a bit of leftovers from my bacon-wrapped, Italian sausage stuffed Turducken (you can get one too from Costco) I wondered what to do with it all then remembered the episode of Supernatural where Dean tried the Pepperjack Turducken Slammer which turned out to literally turn people mad. As Dean said about turducken, "It's like the perfect storm of your top three edible birds.". I studied the scene and decided to recreate it at home. On Supernatural it was on a bun but that seemed too, well, bready so I went with slices of country white bread. The result? A super filling, savory, over-the-top sandwich that will drive you crazy (in a good way).
