In Tagalog, the word "baon" refers to a meal that you prepare at home and take with you. Yes, this is simply a recipe for a turkey sandwich. But we make this often for baon and for team lunch, so we use this checklist regularly to make sure that we have all the supplies we need on hand. Here's how it all comes together when we make this onsite at numnums HQ.
1
Spread mayo and mustard on each slice of bread.
2
Assemble the sandwich with the turkey and cheese in the middle. Depending on the size of the turkey slices and the bread, we usually fold the turkey in halves or quarters. Then we set it so that the straight edges line up with the edges of the bread. Warm it in the oven on an elevated cooling rack until the bread is warmed and slightly toasted.
3
While the sandwiches are in the oven, slice the onion and tomato. Wash and dry the lettuce.
4
Insert the onion and tomato on the mayo side. We like to make sure that the tomato touches the mayo. Insert the lettuce on the mustard side.
5
Slice the sandwich diagonally and enjoy immediately with chips.
notes
For cheese, we'll often rotate between swiss, provolone, blue, or gorgonzola to keep it interesting. :)
