Growing up one of my favorite foods in the whole worlds was sandwiches at my godmother’s house. She used to work in a deli and for some reason the way SHE combines ingredients into a sandwich always ends up so much tastier than when any one else does it.
When it comes down to it, I think it has to be the love she puts into them. No matter how old I get, how far I travel or how long it’s been, walking into my godmother’s house will always feel like coming home. It’s immediate peace and calm (even when there’s 10 kids inside). It’s knowing unconditional love that’s been proven over two decades.
This past week the kids and I found our way to my godmother’s house as we do as often as we can, and it was definitely sandwich day. I wanted a hot sandwich and she didn’t disappoint!
We started with Oscar Mayer Selects. We got the applewood smoked turkey breast, which she paired with sharp cheddar cheese.
She has a little indoor grill, which she always uses when we want them hot. She used French Bread, a small amount of mayonaise, slices of Oscar Mayer Selects Applewood Smoked Turkey Breast and sharp cheddar cheese. Toasted it on an indoor grill for a few minutes and served them up. Still the best sadwich ever, in more ways than one! Served with love, and my favorite flavors. (Oscar Mayer Selects Natural is available in five flavorful varieties including Slow Roasted Turkey, Applewood Smoked Turkey, Rotisserie Seasoned Chicken, Applewood Smoked Ham and Slow Roasted Roast Beef).
Oh the memories, served up with a sandwich. I can’t even count how many she’s given me through the years, and every time, no matter what, they are the absolute best sandwiches I’ve ever had. Made with love and only the best ingredients. With Oscar Mayer Selects Natural, you don’t need to give up the good stuff to enjoy the quality cold cuts your family deserves.
My son has a thing about not wanting his food to be hot so she made him the same thing, but served cold and with a couple leaves of lettuce. The kids can be picky sometimes, but even they know that there’s nothing like Yaya’s sandwiches. Even more so because she and I know that it is made with no artificial ingredients, and is minimally processed
I use all the same ingredients and even have a grill so I can serve up hot and cold sandwiches for my kids in the exact same way my godmother does at home. I can only hope that when my kids grow up they find my house as peaceful and welcoming as I find hers, and my sandwiches every bit as wonderful.
Have you tried Oscar Mayer Selects Natural? With no artificial ingredients and real quality taste, you can rely on it to be one thing that’s not too good to be true!
