|Triple Decker Turducken Club Sandwich with a Trio of Roasted Chicken, Smoked Turkey, |
& Duck Confit, Finished with Cranberry-Jalapeno Relish, + Gravy-Soaked Stuffing Cake
For the Turducken Club Sandwich:
Herbed Compound Butter Fried Bread (I used sourdough)
Homemade Roasted Garlic Aioli
Mama Jones’ Famous Cranberry-Jalapeno Relish Mold (or any cranberry sauce)
Slices of Havarti Cheese & Crumbled Boursin Cheese (can substitute goat cheese)
Slices of Roasted Chicken
Applewood Smoked Thick Cut Bacon
Leftover Stuffing Cake, Cooked until Crispy & Drizzled with Turkey Gravy
Slices of Smoked Turkey
Shredded Duck Confit
Baby Arugula or Frisee Greens
Slices of Tomato (sprinkled with a little salt & pepper)
1. Fry the two slices of bread (for one sandwich) in homemade herbed compound butter until it achieves a deep golden brown color. Fry one stuffing cake or slice of savory bread pudding dipped in a French toast batter (posted yesterday) until crispy. Set these three pieces of toasted bread aside on a cutting board, so you can begin the layering process.
2. Spread on the homemade roasted garlic aioli, Dijon mustard, and cranberry-jalapeno relish on the two slices of bread & stuffing cakes (making sure to use the cranberry slathered sourdough for the top of the sandwich). Starting from the bottom, with the mustard slathered sourdough, lay down a slice of havarti cheese, followed by some roasted chicken, thick cut bacon, frisee greens, seasoned tomatoes, crumbled Boursin cheese, and a drizzle of more roasted garlic aioli. Top that layer with the stuffing/bread pudding cake component, along with a drizzle of warm gravy, with slices of smoked turkey, shredded duck confit, frisee greens, seasoned tomatoes, crumbled Boursin cheese, and drizzle on some more roasted garlic aioli (if you like, it keeps the sandwich moist and flavorful). Finish with one last slice of havarti cheese and the layer of cranberry relish slathered bread, making sure it is a super thick schmear of the fruity compote because it gives great sweetness & acidity.
3. Stick a long toothpick into the sandwich, to hold it together (trust me you’re going to need it), and cut it into halves or fourths. Now, unhinge your jaw and devour this masterpiece only like an anaconda could.
And now for some pictures of our Thanksgiving celebration (better late than never)...
