You all know that Ben brings his lunch to school everyday, well, if you didn’t know already, you do now. We do this for several reasons, first and most important is that we have complete control of what he gets to eat, meaning a healthier lunch meal, and second, it costs way less than the money he would spend every day in the lunch line at school.
This particular sandwich is a real hit! And with the smoked and roasted turkey breast, pepperoni slices, shredded mozzarella or cheddar cheese, Italian dressed coleslaw, fresh tomato slices, and fresh green pepper slices, this sandwich is not only tasty, but has a healthy variety of vegetables also. And not just for school lunch either, this is one good sandwich!
The Italian dressing recipe which I have linked goes to a creamy version that I have used from Emeril’s inspiration, it is a creamy Italian dressing, but you can use any Italian dressing you prefer.
