Junk Yard Special

During the Suja Juice Cleanse, I made the mistake of sitting down and watching the Food Network. While one is sipping down a celery and kale concoction, it is really not best to watch this channel. Just in case you couldn’t figure that out on your own. 

I made it through one episode of The Best Thing I Ever Ate before I needed to turn off the television and walk away from the living room. But during that episode, they showed this sandwich.

Fresh Mozzarella.


Roasted red peppers.


Sure, let’s just take everything that I like and currently can’t eat and shove them all together on one sandwich. That’s just pure torture right there. Determined that I would eat this sandwich after completing the cleanse, I quickly scribbled down all of the ingredients and noted that the sandwich comes from a deli in Philly called Sarcones. Note to self: visit Philly and get actual sandwich ASAP.

    • 1 sub roll 
    • 2 slices prosciutto 
    • 2 slices deli turkey 
    • 1 slice Provolone
    • 1/2 oz. fresh mozzarella, thinly sliced
    • 1/4 cup roasted red peppers, drained
    • 1/4 cup spinach, sauteed
    • dried Italian seasoning 
    • fresh basil, shredded
    • oil and vinegar 

1. Slice the sub roll in half. Place a piece of prosciutto and turkey on each half. Slice the Provolone cheese in half and place on each half. Add the mozzarella, roasted red peppers, and spinach to the sandwich. Sprinkle with dried Italian seasonings and fresh basil. Spritz with oil and vinegar.

Optional: Bake the sandwich for 10 minutes or until the bread is crusty and the cheese is melted through. 

Umm, wow. This is one good sandwich! I know I went light on the fillings compared to what they do at the deli bit this was still one of the best sandwiches I’ve ever had. I ate mine cold and Tom chose to have his lightly toasted.
