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.
