Turkey Sprout Sandwich

We have a bar & deli down on Main St. in my home town called Bison Witches. They have three other locations around the U.S. but we love stopping in during an afternoon outing and grabbing a sandwich and a bowl of soup or chili. I have been going there since my Freshman year of college, which is when I discovered the little jewel of a sandwich, the Miss Priss.

As weird as it sounds, I am really picky when it comes to enclosed foods such as sandwiches, burgers and tacos. I come by it honestly, my dad gave up trying to place our drive-thru orders years ago. If we did find ourselves whipping through a McDonalds or any other fast-food spot, he would pull past the speaker and make the person in the backseat place the order. My mom, sister and I knew eachothers "special" requests by heart. He would say "just order me 2 cheeseburgers - however they come" I am a ketchup and cheese only girl when it comes to burgers, meat and cheese only on tacos and sandwiches....usually. 

In the case of the Miss Priss, even though it goes against the rules I've ordered by my entire life, I was 18 and had just discovered alfalfa sprouts and had branched out a bit and dipped a chicken finger in some honey mustard, WOO HOO! (That was big stuff - the smell of mustard makes me cringe). So, trying to eat like a big girl, I ordered it, and fell in love. I drive by and start to crave it. The honey mustard is more honey than mustard which is perfection to me and the sprouts have just enough crunch to put a little extra pep in your step. Here is my homemade version

The Sandwich
2 slices bread (a good hearty honey oat or wheat best)
4-6 oz sliced turkey, deli style
1-2 slices white cheddar cheese
2 thin slices of tomato
1/2 cup sprouts
Honey Mustard (recipe below)

Honey Mustard
1 tsp country dijon mustard
1 Tbsp honey

Mix up the honey mustard, set it aside. Layer on one slice of bread: tomato, turkey, cheese, sprouts. Spread honey mustard on top slice of bread and place spread side down on top. Easy as 1,2,3!

I didn't have regular tomatoes on hand so I just sliced up some cherry tomatoes

(This is the Country Dijon I used)

Enjoy! XOXO~
