Friday calls for something special! The weekend is almost here (at last) and that calls for joy, cheer, and a really, really good sandwich. The Friday Turkey Club balances being an easy sandwich to make for lunch and being an elevated experience; using some deliciously flavorful focaccia is just step one! The turkey is savory, the bacon is succulent and crisp, the tomato is juicy and bright, and the sauce is sweet, creamy, and tangy. This is definitely a club you’re going to want to join! After just one bite of this Friday Turkey Club, you’ll never think of sandwiches the same way again.
