Open-Face Hidden Sandwich


There’s a gorgeous gift shop near us where every season is an eye-catching display of home decor items, gifts for any occasion, and specialty gourmet-type treats that would be perfect for a gift basket. The shop is magical between Thanksgiving and Christmas. All of which makes it hugely popular. You can easily spend a couple of hours slowly making your way through the shop – and we have!

 

The shop includes a restaurant with a charming rustic decor, where you can take a little shopping break, and catch a bite to eat. Their menu includes some pretty delicious specialty sandwiches, one of which is an open-face ‘hidden’ sandwich completely covered with lettuce (it looks like a plate of salad) and topped with thousand island dressing. And that’s the sandwich that inspired us to create our own version.

 

We think any good recipe has a layering of flavors. This sandwich definitely has that flavor layering thing going on! We added or changed a few ingredients, and served it with a different presentation.

 

What’s nice about this sandwich, besides being delicious, is that it’s very easy to put several of them together in no time to serve for lunch on the patio when it’s your turn to host a luncheon, or just whenever you’d love a refreshing lunch (or dinner)! If you’ve ever found yourself hunting for a specialty sandwich recipe, give this one a try!

Open-Face Hidden Sandwich – Specialty Sandwich Recipe

 (Makes 1 serving)

 

1 slice  –  artisan rye bread

1/2 cup  –  shaved turkey from the deli

1/2 cup  –  shaved ham from the deli

2 slices  –  Havarti cheese, we used imported

1 1/2 cups  –  Romaine lettuce, chopped

1/4 cup  –  red seedless grapes, quartered

       Thousand  Island dressing to taste

 

Building the sandwich is really simple. When we added the lettuce to our version, we wanted to be sure the sandwich was still showing beneath the lettuce, so that the dressing could be drizzled over both the lettuce and the sandwich – we thought it made a nice presentation!

 

Start with a slice of really good rye bread,
