3 Tips to Build a Better Sandwich with Specialty Meats, Port Jervis, New York

There are few meals that offer as much variety as a sandwich made with specialty meats. Whether you love a classic ham and cheese or prefer cured Italian meats like prosciutto, there are several different ways you can dress up your favorite sandwich. If you’re ready to try something new, use the following tips to build a better sandwich.

Top Tips to Make a Better Sandwich

1. Upgrade Your Turkey

If your go-to protein is typically turkey, try upgrading your next sandwich with a special flavor. You can opt for turkey that is smoked, roasted or seasoned with fresh herbs. If you prefer to build sandwiches centered around turkey, try picking up roasted turkey cuts with herbs. Pair a whole grain bread, olive-oil mayonnaise, and a cheese like creamy Havarti or provolone to balance out the seasoned meat. Add lettuce or tomato if desired.  

2. Try Something New

Head cheese is a cold cut commonly made from pork that offers a savory flavor and pairs well with fragrant condiments. To try something new with a little zest, pair head cheese, Polish Morski cheese, and Polish mustard on Polish rye — sliced fresh red onion optional.

3. Don’t Forget the Bacon

Whether you want to dress up your favorite turkey breast or are building a sandwich with Italian specialty meats, adding bacon can bring out new flavors and pairs well with different types of cheeses. Use double-smoked bacon or smoked pork loin bacon to provide your favorite sandwich with a smoky element and crispy texture that balances out soft mozzarella and Muenster cheeses.
