Turkey, Bacon, and Ramp Sandwich
Flavor-wise, the sandwich hit the mark. Bacon and turkey are a man's chocolate and peanut butter and the ramps fit into the flavor profile seamlessly. The sharp cheddar was a bit harsh for the other elements and a creamier cheese like swiss, provolone, or even pepper jack would have done the sammy a world of good (this weekend's shopping list has been duly updated).
In terms of texture, something was amiss. I had originally envisioned a panini but feared that the sammy would slide apart in my small George Foreman, so I ate it as is. The bread was a bit hard and too big for a regular sandwich, thereby leaving me with a bit of sympathy for John Holmes' costars back in the day. The flattening and steaming of the bread during a proper press cooking would have been a big plus.
Overall, this attempt gets points for meat 'n ramp flavor, but loses out on texture and cheesiness and has nuthin' on last year's ramp, bacon, egg, and cheese bagelwich. I give it 3 out of 5 lazy Appalachians who could have damn well made a panini on a skillet with a metal spatula but didn't.
