The Denny's Deli-Dinger!

I've received a lot of traffic from people searching for the ingredients on a Denny's Deli Dinger. This was a sandwich that was a staple of my diet through the 90's, but is sadly unavailable anymore. Luckily, through some super-secret back channels, midnight meetings in abandoned parking lots, and paying off several high-ranking officials, I now possess the long-lost recipe. No need to thank me- your happiness is my reward.

3 slices of sourdough bread
1/8 lb sliced deli turkey
1/8 lb sliced deli ham
2 pieces of bacon
1 thick slice mild cheddar cheese
1 thick slice American cheese
2 tomato slices
1 piece of lettuce
REAL mayo

Cook the ham and turkey on the stove top until they appear to be cooked. Toast the bread and melt the cheese on each slice. Melt the cheddar on one and the American on the other. The two pieces with cheese will be the middle and bottom of the DeliDinger. Once the meat is ready, put it on top of the now-melted cheese. Top the meat with bacon as shown below.

Once you've got the meat and cheese finished, you're just about there. Spread a little bit of mayo to the bottom of the middle piece of bread. Add a piece of lettuce to the top layer, then take the tomato slices and put them on top of the lettuce. Spread a heroic amount of mayo on the bottom of the top piece of bread, cut the sandwich diagonally and you're done! I'm pretty sure these taste better after midnight and with a cup of coffee.

The toasted sourdough bread can and will tear the ever-loving crap out of your mouth! You have been warned!

Azoti- Connecting communities to locally-grown food!

A very cool perk of my job is having access to Azoti- a local company that co-ops with local farmers to bring food from the farm to your table. It's a subscription service, but offers a lot of different levels to choose from. I'm going to be signing up for both the meat and the fruits/vegetable package. I wanted to get the word out now in case anyone was interested in checking them out. The nice thing is that you can try it for a month and see if you like it. If you don't, you're able to cancel at any time.

I've heard nothing but rave reviews of the program, and have sampled some of the meat from Oink Moo Cluck (the local farm that raises the pork/beef/chicken) and I have to tell you, the bacon is pretty much the best thing I've ever had. I really can't wait to try some of the other stuff, especially the steaks!

Hello! I'm cute but delicious!
