Believe it or not, I came up with the idea for this sandwich while watching an insurance commercial. This dude was eating this great-looking sandwich, and I paused it, and back played it several time, until I figured out what I wanted to do. Is it the same sandwich… probably not. But it looks pretty much the same. So, you ready… Let’s get into the kitchen.
