cobb salad sandwich

Do you ever think you've come up with some brilliant recipe only to find, as you hop online, that about 547 other human beings have already thought of your brilliant recipe? This happens to me quite often. A cobb salad sandwich popped into my head last night so I checked to see if there was a recipe for it and sure enough...my sweet and talented bloggy friend, Cathy had a delicious recipe on her blog from March '09.

My only change to this recipe really is a substitution of turkey bacon.

Let me tell you, this is one awesome sandwich! I LOVED IT! I can't wait to eat it again. I'd even love it for breakfast!

Cobb Salad Sandwich
adapted from Wives with Knives

serves 4

4 onion rolls, toasted
mayo
green leaf lettuce
1 pkg roast chicken lunch meat (I found some spicy cajun chicken. It added a nice kick.)
8 slices of turkey bacon, cooked crisp
1 large tomato, sliced
1 ripe avocado, sliced
3-4 hard boiled eggs, sliced
blue cheese crumbles
cracked black pepper

Layer ingredients on half of the onion roll. Top with the other half. Chow down!!

I hope you'll give this a try. It's so dang tasty!

That happens to me quite a bit! and sometimes its such an off the wall recipe that surely no one has come up with it....LOL Your sandwich looks wonderful!! and it's a great idea...even though you weren't the first to dream it up. :)

I have had that happen, Kim! It's hard to come up with new stuff. I mean, how many years have human beings been cooking. I don't know, but it's a lot of years (smile).
This looks delicious-I'm going to make a sandwich...
