A Sandwich for Charlie

For the 43 years that I’ve known my dad, a lot has changed. We started on Gillette Road, where indoor plumbing for our neighbors was not a given. He has been a car salesman, a politician, a philanthropist…but all through those years, he has loved Nance’s Sharp and Creamy Mustard. Today he tries to avoid carbs at all costs. Tonight, I kind of threw that low carb training under the bus to create a perfect sandwich. Dad, this sandwich has your name all over it.



Organic Rosemary Olive Oil Rolls from Wegmans
1 large red onion, sliced– roasted for 20 minutes in light olive oil at 350′
sliced deli turkey
sliced maple cured ham
cored and sliced thin Granny Smith apples
Beef Steak tomato sliced razor thin
Thinly sliced Swiss cheese
Nance’s sharp and creamy mustard
Kraft’s poppy seed dressing
A hearty tomato or broth based soup to accompany…nothing creamy.

Preheat the oven to 350’ and spray rolls with olive oil cooking spray on each side. Slice rolls in half and slather each side with mustard and dressing…generous, but not too much. Layer additional ingredients, top with cheese, half on each side, and toast at 350’  for ten minutes. Put together and serve with soup.
