Meat and Bread is famous for their porchetta sandwiches but they also have a special Turducken sandwich just for Christmas! It was only available on Dec. 23 and 24. On the 23rd my co workers and I went at around 12pm and there was already a huge lineup so we decided to pass and come back the next day before they opened. We expected a line up but not one that went around the corner from their store! Going earlier the next day worked in our favour but we still had to line up for about half an hour. We were standing outside and we could smell the deliciousness inside already. I think I’ve become more of a sandwich person this year.
So what is a Turducken??? It’s chicken stuffed in duck stuffed in turkey. Yes that’s a lot of stuffing.
The Turducken Sandwich has turducken, fried onion strings, stuffing gravy and cashew butter. It was super moist and flavourful and the gravy was a nice touch. It didn’t feel as fatty as the porchetta either and it was worth the wait! The ciabatta bun was crispy on the outside but still chewy. We were trying not to over hype the sandwich and disappoint ourselves haha If you’re a fan of Meat and Bread you should consider trying their turducken next year! I think the limited availability makes it even more desirable. I mean if you wait for half an hour you’re going to convince yourself it’s really great anyway psychologically speaking. But don’t worry it was good!
