one of the BEST sandwiches I ever had!
Well, at least best sandwich I had eating out. Nothing can beat a homemade peanut butter and jelly sandwich on fluffy white (yea, I said it) bread with globs of peanut butter and jelly. MMM.
Anyway, insert the Cosi Turkey and Stuffing Sandwich. I’ve been WAITING for this baby. It’s seasonal, and I always happen to fall in love with seasonal items. Good for the companies, bad for me when I want a stuffing sandwich in July, or some fruity flavored thing in the winter (so typical of my body to crave out of season….how DARE it!!!?)
I went to the gym Friday and afterward wanted to reward my muscles with some protein after a hard muscle workout. My options were scrambled eggs (which…. I have every day), yogurt (for lunch? Nah…) or a nice sandwich from Cosi. Bread? Carbs? Protein? Count. Me. In.
I ordered the sandwich, which came with carrots, and a drink and it came to about $10.00. A little on the pricy side for sure, but usually worth the money in flavor.
Here’s what the sandwich looked like once I got home.
One bite….and I was hooked.
Starting with the bread (<3) which I’m almost positive I asked for Whole Grain, and I’m pretty sure I got white bread. I would know…the Whole Grain usually has a whole bunch of flax seeds and such in it, and this one I found MAYBE one or two stragglers. Hmm. Whatever. It was still beyond delicious so even though the inner soon-to-be nutritionist was yelling Uh, RETURN THIS! Go get your whole grains! Stop eating refined carbs! my brain was yelling There’s no way I’m walking back 10 blocks to return a sandwich and taste buds were yelling this is too dang delicious to stop eating.
So it was settled. I ate the white-possibly-whole-grain-but-I’ll-never-know bread. Flaky, crusty, goodness. Mmm.
The turkey pieces (medallions??) were chewy and there were PLENTY of them. They were a bit salty and otherwise a wee bit bland/dry if eaten alone, but still good.
The stuffing was so good. It was flavorful, and I tasted a piece of celery in there. It was very bready, and very yummy, with spices (but NOT spicy!)
Lastly, the cranberry. Sweet and soft, and like a spread. Went perfectly with the stuffing and turkey.
Overall, HELLO leftover sandwich BEFORE Thanksgiving! I would call that a win. There’s 435 calories in this sandwich which is a bit more than I’d eat normally for lunch also considering the carrots (um…and the cookie I ate with it but let’s forget about that….) but it was well worth the money and the calories.
Who invented this sandwich? She or he is a genius. 4.5 stars
