Open face it
This sandwich is open faced. It is on a wheat bread baguette from this french baker at the montrose farmers market. Amazing, perfect consistency, perfect flavor, etc... Toasted the bread, added some butter and applied the eggs and fried balogna at my leisure. Sometimes its nice to eat like that. Have a bunch of different meats, cheeses, condiments and veggies. Every bite can be like eating a different sandwich. The combinations are endless.
This sandwich isn't all that special, but I wanted to address the open faced factor. Open faced sandwiches exist in more than one realm. For instance, if you put a thin layer of cold cuts on a baguette and melt cheese on top then its like a french bread pizza right? So, its kinda of like a pizza! And doesn't the word sandwich kind of mean between two things? Its like a sandwich moonlighting as a pizza... or vice versa.
This sandwich is wheat bread with turkey and melted muenster cheese, sweet onions and lettuce. Again, not a special sandwich except for the condiments. Mayo, mustard, red wine vinaigrette and just the right amount of srircacha. The salt and vinegar chips also helped to set it off. The sandwich was a success.
