take my word for it wednesday.. mashed potato, bacon and turkey sandwichs are pretty darn good..


i had a family gathering on saturday.. we first went out to the dirt and went riding and then home for a big bowl of hearty stew {the recipe and post tomorrow} and i served my stew with mashed taters.. i had a big bowl left over the next day and well a mashed potato sandwich sounded ahhmazing.. then the thought of having it on crusty toasted ciabatta bread and topping it with sweet n' spicy bacon, turkey and cranberry mayo sent this sandwich to another level of goodness.. don't be scared to put unsual things on your sandwiches.. live a little.. be daring.. be unique.. it makes life fun.. now go on now.. scoot.. make yourself a left over mashed potato sandwich.. i insist.. and take my word for it.. you will not be unhappy you did..

mashed potato, bacon & turkey sandwich

prep time: 10 minutes
cooking time: 20 minutes
serving: 2


1/2 cup left over mashed potatoes
1/4 cup of shredded sharp cheddar cheese
6 slices of bacon, i cooked mine in the oven like i always do, that method shown here.. but this time i took a tsp. of brown sugar and a 1/8 of a tsp. of cayenne and mixed them together then sprinkled over the bacon before cooking.. ohh my word it was so good..
4-6 slices of turkey
cranberry mayo {1 tblsp. of mayo and 1 tblsp. of spicy cranberry combine and put in fridge until ready to use}
2 ciabatta {panini} rolls, split and toasted

split your bread in half, brush with olive oil or butter and toast until slightly crunchy.. cook bacon until crisp.. make your cranberry mayo and put in fridge until ready to use.. reheat your mashed potatoes and add cheddar cheese while heating.. once everything is ready take your bread and shmear a good helping of the taters on the bottom piece of bread.. top with turkey then shmear your cranberry mayo on your top piece of bread and top with bacon and sandwich the two peices together.. and devour.. it was soooooo good.. pete had been napping and woke up and found it on the counter he took a bite and said what the heck is this and why haven't you made it before this is wonderful.. and if i do say so myself it was pretty tasty!!

enjoy and get cook'n!!
