Frontega Turkey Sandwich
My craving for Panera's Frontega Chicken Sandwich convinced me to make my first homemade focaccia bread. Well, yesterday, I decided to make a "Frontega Turkey Sandwich" by grilling two slices of the homemade focaccia with a few slices of turkey, cheddar cheese (Kraft deluxe), Hellman's Mayonnaise, and sliced, pickled jalapeño peppers. It was so good I had to make it again the next day. I think it was better than the sandwich at Panera! YUM!!
I threw the sandwich on my flat grill and smashed it with a heavy bowl.
As a side, I fried some tortilla chips and sprinkled kosher salt on top. I also made nacho cheese sauce that I found here. I usually make my cheese sauce with a roux (equal parts flour and butter) as a base, but this time I made it with cornstarch. Both versions taste awesome; however, the cornstarch version is easier and doesn't require butter.
*sigh* My days of eating whatever I want are ending soon. On April 1st, I will be eating a lot healthier, so there will already be changes on this blog. In the meantime, I am enjoying the different, less-healthy foods that exist out there. I hope you enjoy them as well!
