I’ve mentioned before that I’m a sandwich lover.
You’d think that being gluten free would slow me down a bit, but really it hasn’t. Other than missing artisan bread from the bakery, I’m still enjoying them.
If I have a salad for breakfast, it’s usually a sandwich or wrap for lunch. ( I frequently have a salad for breakfast. Yes, I know that is weird.)
Or, sometimes the salad is for lunch, and it’s the sandwich that I enjoy for breakfast.
You’d think that that could get boring, but if you’ve been around my kitchen for long, you know that I don’t do boring.
I am always mixing things up.
Today’s California Club Sandwiches are my latest creation.
Satisfying any time of day!
