Recipe: Hot Hero Sandwich: BETH (bacon, egg, turkey, ham)

This post is sponsored by Prime Fresh Smithfield. All opinions are my own.

When I make a sammich - I gotta make it big, I gotta make it hot and I like to make it messy! Messy can mean a lot of different things - sometimes it's olive oil & vinegar, sometimes it's oozing cheese and sometimes it's an over-easy egg ready to pop!

The other thing for a big ol' hero sandwich is that I get bored with plain ol' bread - so I want to add things to it - I'll just add and add and add to it until it's too big for me to even eat it! And that's the kind of mood I was in today!

Last week I was introduced to Prime Fresh Deli Meats by Smithfield - so I picked some up this weekend and decided to hero-it-up!!!

So join the Hero Club with a hero sandwich of your own! First - I started up the layering with a Pretzel bun - and topped it with Swiss Cheese, Prime Fresh Delicatessan Smoked Ham and Smoked Turkey and more ham and more turkey...

Then I got the rest of my goodies together: Smithfield bacon and an over easy fried egg! What you have here seems like a controlled giant - like a Transformer when he's in his Semi Truck form - you just don't know what's about to hit you.

My friend couldn't handle the giant -so I made her a smaller version. (wuss!) And when that yolk erupts into a juicy, creamy delicious mess - that's the best part! The Prime Fresh deli meat is a great complement to the hearty pretzel bun - no worry of sogging out - it all holds together really well. I loved the Smoked Ham & Smoked Turkey too - it had a nice smokiness but was just the right amount.

It really took a lot for me to not lick the plate - it's just the way I get with an over easy egg. Heating the pretzel bun in the oven helped too - because it softens it up a touch. You could even get fancy and top the bun with a little melted butter and chunk salt.

Prime Fresh by Smithfield lunch meat is found in the packaged lunch meat area and they have four varieties: Smoked Turkey Breast, Smoked Ham, Oven Roasted Turkey & Honey Ham. They're all delicious. I definitely tried them all before making my giant hot hero today!
