The other day at work we had a "working lunch meeting", so they provided us with some lunch from Paradise Bakery.  We had our choice of a variety of sandwiches.  My favorite one was called "California Turkey", it had Sourdough Bread with pesto mayo, cucumbers, bacon, turkey and tomato.  I really liked it.   

This is my own homemade version of that sandwich.  I loved it.  The combination of the bacon, cucumber, turkey and pesto was so good, in my opinion.  I used this french bread, but when it was almost finished baking, I brushed one of the loaves with a little olive oil and sprinkled it with grated Parmesan and Asiago cheese, then let it finish baking.  So yummy.

1 loaf of this French Bread
olive oil, opt.
Parmesan Cheese, grated, opt.

1/3 c. prepared basil pesto
2/3 c. Mayonnaise
1/2 Lb. smoked, sliced deli turkey
1 cucumber, sliced thin

If you would like cheese bread: about 10 minutes before the french bread is finished baking, brush the top with a little olive oil and sprinkle with Parmesan and Asiago cheese and continue baking.  Let bread cool slightly.  Combine pesto and mayonnaise; adjust to taste.  Slice bread in half horizontally and brush both sides with pesto mayonnaise.  Layer sliced turkey, sliced cucumbers, cooked bacon, lettuce and tomato.  Cut into 3 or 4 slices.  Serve.
