Years ago I used to get this sandwich at Denney's and I loved it. I
wouldn't eat there now if you paid me. In looking at their nutritional
information, I think about the only things they serve that aren't loaded
with tons of other additives are the bacon and the applesauce. But I
digress...

If memory serves, this was a grilled sandwich on sourdough bread. It had
turkey, bacon, some kind of cheese, onions and tomatoes. Very tasty.

I'm thinking you could create the same sort of thing by putting the turkey
in a skillet with the cheese on top long enough to melt (or maybe warmed in
the microwave). The bacon would of course have to be cooked till crispy
separately. These days I mainly only buy microwaveable pre-cooked bacon, so
not a problem there.

You could then wrap this in lettuce to eat. Or serve it on whatever kind of
bread you eat. If you eat bread.

I have a package of sliced turkey breast about to go bad and was trying to
think of something to do with it. Besides the usual warmed up turkey with
mashed potatoes. That never goes over too well.

Mmmm! Sounds good. You could do a straight Italian version with
mozzarella and basil, too.

That would work too.

At another restaurant called Lyons (now defunct chain in CA) I used to get a
foccacia sandwich. They put pesto on it. There was turkey and spinach.
Can't remember now if there was cheese or not. I think there was tomato.
Maybe onion. It was very good.

This is good timing, Julie - I have some turkey in the fridge and
needed some ideas for it

Try my turkey club sandwich salad recipe. chunks of turkey, crumbled
bacon(I use the fak Baco-bits), chunked tomatoes. Mix with some mayonaise
adn black pepper(enough salt in teh bacon) and serve on a bed of crispy
lettuce. For the rest of the family, serve some toast cubes on the side
to put on top of their portions.

why not stuff this into a pita pocket, then melt the cheese and heat the
turkey meat

bacon always makes things taste better

That reminds me of my BLT salad -- lettuce, tomato, bacon, and mayo. YUM

I don't know if I'm allergic to pita or not. Might contain egg or milk. I
will look next time I go to the store. Pita bread doesn't seem to be a big
thing here. I don't think I've ever seen it. Years ago I used to get mini
pitas to take in my lunch. Alas, Angela can't have pita. Unless I can find
a gluten free recipe for it.

I used to make cherry tomatoes that were stuffed with a mixture of mayo,
crumbled bacon and finely minced green onion. Always a hit at parties. Too
bad I can't find a good sub for the mayo.

Hmmm. Would a touch of Xantham or guar gum work to stabilise an
oil/vinegar emulsion? Actually, even just an oil/water one? You'd need
to whizz it up just before use, but the taste ought to work.

Tried that. Taste and texture was off. My recipe called for the addition
of lemon juice, onion powder and something else. I can't remember now.
Maybe paprika.

Ah yes, the SuperBird... that was my Denny's favorite as well. And by the
way, Denny's has made a tremendous effort to ramp up their quality overall.
And therein the reason they had the free breakfast for anyone promotion a
few weeks ago. They want to make Joe Publiq comfortable coming to their
restaurant again, particularly with food quality.

And although I missed out on the freebie breakfast deal (lol)... I did have
breakfast at various locations recently and found that it is possible to
have a reasonable low carb meal if you really try, and I did find the
quality to be okay. Not five star by any stretch, but neither were the
prices on the menu, so I for one am willing to "go to Lenny's I mean
Denny's" again for a change.

I just looked at their nutritional information and allergens and can't see
much change there. Yes, there are a few more things we can eat, but we
still can't get a meal there. Too much extra stuff in their food that we
are allergic to. Such is the problem with most chains.

I don't think I've ever known anyone as terrorized with allergies as you -
honestly, I don't know how you manage. And dare I grumble about having to
deal with the normal diabetic limitations, I can't imagine how you have to
think and investigate everything that goes into your mouth. It's almost
overwhelming at times I'm sure.

I know plenty of people with food allergies. But then I hang out on food
allergy boards.
