The Kid Vicious : A New Take on a Childhood Favorite
Today is National Sandwich Day, and to celebrate one of the yummiest of holidays (and to save face, because our not posting something would be a gross violation of everything we hold dear), we at The Sandwich Snobs introduce our take on a classic: the fried-bologna sandwich.
We tried to embrace the nostalgia of our school days (absent the Wet Willies, Swirlies and Atomic Wedgies), while simultaneously staying true to our unbridled worship of the almighty bacon, as well having some semblance of faux gourmet -- or "fauxmet," if you will.
In other words: sandwich by The Sandwich Snobs; bacon, by golly.
This particular iteration of the childhood classic uses four slices of beef bologna, two slices of applewood bacon, mild cheddar cheese, Havarti cheese, mozzarella cheese, spinach spread, avocado and red onion -- all snuggled between two slices of toasted panini bread.
The combination of crispy and creamy elevated the innocence associated with this piece of processed meat, which held its own among readin', writin' and "rithmatic."
And, well, the spinach spread just took it over the top in bringing back all those memories of schoolyard games and good, ol' fashioned, edible Americana.
Just look at that. Can't you just smell the pop quiz?
