Super Bowl Sandwiches: Club Sandwich Recipe & Cookbook Giveaway

Super Bowl Sunday is almost upon us, and so many people have been calling me to purchase my cookbook, “400 Best Sandwiches: From Classics & Burgers to Wraps & Condiments”. (Honestly, I am just looking forward to the commercials and seeing Madonna). Anyway, a friend told me the other day that she is making something really simple: my  Club Sandwich recipe. In honor of Super Bowl 46, I thought I could give away one copy of my latest book filled with 400 Sandwich Recipes. Here are a few more selections from the book.

Simple Turkey Burgers with a Twist

img_1573

I used to not be a fan of ground turkey, but because all of the recipe development jobs I have received requesting recipes for ground turkey, I have grown to love it. Even my three children have grown to love ground turkey, especially this recipe with guacamole and turkey bacon (some of their favorite ingredients). This recipe is so easy and flavorful, and I hope you will try it too. I am still in Chicago at the International Housewares show, but I miss Alabama and love light comforting recipes such as this one.

Main-Dish Salad: Shrimp Iceberg Wedge Salad

img_13171

Iceberg wedge salads are so fresh, delicious and best of all, simple. This one is a low-fat main-dish salad topped with shrimp and turkey bacon. I developed a low-fat blue cheese dressing to go with it, but if you’re short on time, use a bottled blue cheese or even vinaigrette dressing instead. This recipe is so simple: 21 minutes and dinner’s on the table.

 

Shrimp Iceberg Wedge

If you’re short on time, cook turkey bacon in microwave on HIGH 21/2 to 3 minutes or until crispy.

1 large head iceberg lettuce, cut into 6 wedges, with core attached

2 slices turkey bacon, cooked and crumbled into pieces

1 cup chopped tomato

1/3 cup thinly sliced red onion

Pita wedges (optional)
