B-Town Club

This is our newest amazing sandwich that we sell at our Bountiful store. I was first introduced to really great hot sandwiches a few years ago when a new restaurant opened in downtown Salt Lake City, the Nauvoo Cafe. I went home and taught myself to make great hot sandwiches in my oven, using the broiler. Being introduced to Pesto Mayo and using a lot more Munster cheese came more recently, but put them altogether and you get an amazing sandwich. And needing a name for said sandwich we looked to Si at A Bountiful Kitchen for inspiration, it's called the B-Town in honor of her and Bountiful itself.

B-Town Club
makes 1 sandwich

Ciabatta Bread
Deli Turkey
Munster Cheese
4 slices of bacon, cooked

To make a Pesto Mayo, combine 1 part Pesto with 2 parts Mayo, at home I've even used light mayo and had it turn out fine (I usually add just a bit of garlic salt if using light mayo).  If you can't tell, this bottle came from Costco, but you can also usually find Pesto in the grocery store, I've seen it by the pasta sauces.

Slice Ciabatta bread in half and put Pesto Mayo on both sides. I'm not going to give an amount here, just put as much or as little as you would like.

On top of the Pesto Mayo place 2 slices of Munster cheese on half and your deli turkey on the other half. At home a lot of time, I'll use my very favorite cheese, Tillamook Medium Cheddar. It's great on this too!

Place the sandwich in either a toaster oven, or your regular oven on broil. At home, I don't put my rack up near the broiler (things cook waaaay to fast there!), I leave the rack in the middle and I still have to watch it. The sandwich just needs to cook until the cheese is melted to the bread and the turkey is heated through. Remove.

Add the lettuce tomatoes and cooked bacon. At Cutler's we use a pre-cooked bacon. I use the same thing at home, but I buy it in a large package from Costco (love that place). Pre-cooked bacon is really simple to use, you can even heat it in the microwave. I think this sandwich would also be awesome with some red onion rings!
