The MOO Sandwich

MOO = Mayo on the outside. Trust me on this now, it's fantastic. You might think 'Mayo on the outside of the bread... Isn't that a bit messy?' Well... yeah I suppose it could be, which is why things get toasted first, it makes a toasted mayo glaze on the outside of the sandwich.

Here's how to make a sandwich the MOO way! Preheat the oven to 425, take out two pieces of bread and slap some mayo on one side and put them on a baking sheet mayo side up. Toast for 7 minutes then remove from oven and flip the bread mayo side down. Add your sandwich meats, cheeses and spreads (ie salsa, guacamole, BBQ or grainy mustard) and then toast for another 6-7 minutes. If you are adding bacon, pre-cook it first.

Mayo side up! Toppings added

When it's done toasting, just add your lettuce, tomato, salt and pepper and top with the 2nd piece of bread, mayo side up! Enjoy! The mayo makes a tasty glaze on the outside of the sandwich.

You can also add the lettuce and tomato or other veggies (like bell pepper or onions) with the meat and cheese. If you take this route then things are made slightly different. Instead of toasting one side of the bread and then adding toppings and toasting open faced, you toast it as a completed sandwich. Put your first slice of bread mayo side down, add all your sandwich toppings, don't leave anything out! Top with the second slice of bread, mayo side up. Toast at 425 for 6-7 minutes, carefully flip the sandwich over and repeat.

Be adventurous with the sandwich combinations, and layer it up thick! Some favorites are smoke turkey with sharp cheddar, BBQ sauce and grainy mustard; BLTs; turkey layered with pepper jack, salsa, guacamole, bacon, lettuce and tomato; ham, turkey, and bacon layered with swiss, cheddar and provolone, lettuce and tomato; roast beef with provolone, swiss, onions and bell peppers; or for a breakfast treat try it with thick sliced breakfast ham, cheddar, bacon, and scrambled eggs.

Any thoughts on which kind of bread is best? White, wheat, rye, etc?
