Turkey Cobb...Sandwich

I've been brown bagging it quite a bit lately. For a couple of's cheaper. And usually a lot healthier. Sometimes it's leftovers from dinner the night before. Sometimes a salad of some sort. And other times a sandwich.

But I am not a plain 'ol sandwich kind of guy. It takes more than just white bread and cold cuts to keep me happy. Usually it's as easy as high-quality bread or some unusual vegetables. I ran across some inspiration the other day...a sandwich which combines the best of a Cobb salad and puts it between bread. It's fantastic.

Turkey Cobb Sandwich
Makes one sandwich.

1 tablespoon mayonnaise
1/2 tablespoon crumbled blue cheese
Bread (sourdough, sandwich roll or even whole-grain. Toast it if you'd like.)
3 slices bacon
1 small avocado, sliced
2 slices tomato
1 egg (hard boiled and sliced if you're packing ahead, fried if you're eating immediately after construction)
4 slices turkey

Blend the mayo and blue cheese. (This is your dressing.) Spread it on your bread and stack remaining ingredients.
