This is a post that I mean to make a very long time ago. I made this while in Santa Monica for Thanksgiving, but have unfortunately been very busy with school, and forgetful. This sandwich started after a night at the UCB. The group I was with had been drinking and we decided a late night trip to the grocery store would be a good idea. While at the grocery store we developed the idea for the next sandwich, The Cure. Unlike the vast majority of sandwiches on this site, this sandwich does not involve ice cream (GASP!). So what is a Cure? Let’s find out:
First we start off with some turkey bacon:
So what would you do next? We added more cheese and wrapped it in more bacon.
So after the additional bacon we felt we needed even more cured meat, so we wrapped the whole thing in some prosciutto.
After we wrapped it, we threw it in the pan for a bit.
So after a quick run in the pan, we ate it.
Conclusion: I would eat it again. I am a fan of every ingredient in the sandwich, and when put together they all taste amazing. If you’re not into salty eats then this sandwich is not for you, everything in this sandwich is at least a little salty. What I liked best about it was the turkey bacon, it added structure to the sandwich, which made it easier to eat. You can’t really tell from the picture above but it was actually pretty easy to eat. If I were to make it again I think I would put a bit more time into it, partially cook the bacon, then wrap it, then cook the bacon more to make it crispy. Wrapping something in already cooked, mostly crispy bacon, is kind of a hassle and makes the sandwich more sloppy than needed. If you have a supply of cured meats and cheese, and are looking for something to eat, make this sandwich.
