'Wich of the Week: The Smokey Sherm

'Wich of the Week: The Smokey Sherm

As I've mentioned before, one of my favorite sandwich shops in San Francisco is Estela's. The sandwiches are huge, fresh, relatively healthy, and easy to re-create at home. That said, I just couldn't resist bringing you one more sandwich from my recent Estela's excursion.

Unlike the vegetarian-friendly Carrot sandwich, today's 'Wich of the Week is designed with barbecue lovers in mind. Called the Smokey Sherm, it combines smoked turkey, smoked gouda, and barbecue sauce for a sandwich that's just slightly decadent but not too heavy. To find out how to make it,


This sweet, smoky sandwich is easy to make at home with products you can find at your local supermarket. Just be sure to buy good strong gouda, since that is the dominant flavor. Here's what you'll need:

  • 1 telera roll or other soft white roll
  • 3 to 4 slices of smoked turkey
  • 2 to 3 slices of smoked gouda cheese
  • About 1/8 cup of barbecue sauce
  • 2 slices of tomato
  • 2 pieces of red leaf lettuce
  • 4 to 5 dill pickle sandwich slices
  • Thinly-sliced red onion, to taste
  • About 1/4 of an avocado, sliced
  • Mayonnaise (optional)

Slice the roll horizontally and coat the bottom slice with barbecue sauce. Layer the smoked turkey on top, followed by the smoked gouda, lettuce, tomato, pickles, and avocado. Coat the top slice of the roll with a thin layer of mayo, and close the two pieces together. With a sharp knife, cut the sandwich into two halves to enjoy alone or share.

This used to be my favorite sandwich until the place selling it closed down (in Virginia)! They called it the "Brooklyn" and always put double the cheese and sauce for my sister and I since we are twins. I am going to make this tonight!!

That looks soooo good! Too bad about cheese being on absolutely everything since I'm highly allergic, but I can certainly appreciate what it adds to a sandwich.
