Quasi-Asian Club Sandwiches
What do you do when you have an entire roast turkey breast (and then some) left over in the refrigerator? If you're Alex, you make club sandwiches. And since the Roast Turkey Breasts with Asian Spice Rub was quasi-Asian to begin with, you make quasi-Asian club sandwiches. To be perfectly honest, the only Asian (or quasi-Asian) elements to these sandwiches were the turkey breasts themselves, which were seasoned with an Asian spice rub of Sichuan peppercorns, star anise, clove, coriander, fennel and cinnamon, and the spicy mayo Alex put together, which was seasoned with sriracha and a pinch each of ground coriander and ground cumin. Otherwise, these sandwiches were basically traditional turkey clubs, which are a perfect lazy Sunday meal!
There is no real recipe here, although I can post the method we used for cooking the bacon in the oven. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil and place a cooling rack on top. Lay the bacon strips out on top of the rack and then slide the pan into the oven. Turn the oven on to 400 degrees F and allow bacon to roast until they reach the desired level of crispness, about 20-25 minutes. It's almost too easy.
