With school back in session and September in full swing, we've got our minds set on giving the tired brown bag a major face-lift. Thank goodness we're not in on this alone: Food Network's brought together some of the country's top food outlets for a virtual back-to-school lunch. From chard turnovers to French country tuna sandwiches, this meal's got it all — and each recipe is one that you can re-create yourself at home.
At Sugar HQ office kitchen, we think there's nothing better than a fully-loaded turkey club sandwich, and this recipe — which is loaded with bacon, cheddar, and avocado — is by far our favorite. See what the rest of our friends are bringing to the table when you read more.
