The Sunbird Sandwich

Jeanne Gliddon


This is a very delicious sandwich that I am excited to share with you. I discovered it at a deli near where I worked in the 80's and always ordered it when I was there for lunch. Then a few years ago I remembered just how good this sandwich was. So I recreated it and when I served it to my sister for the first time she fell in love with all of the flavors going on within the bun. I hope that you have a chance to try this wonderful sandwich and enjoy it as much as we do!
