Jalapeño Popper Sandwich with Turkey and Canadian Bacon with Swiss & Garlic Parmesan Cream Cheese Spread on Sour Dough!

“Cooking is the art of adjustment.” – Jacques Pepin

Dave & I first had this sandwich at a cool little joint near my home in Waterford. We both really enjoyed it but there were a few things I didn’t care for about it. For instance, they used canned jalapenos which are pickled… and I don’t like pickled anything. So of course I thought I could make it better, and we think I did! 

I love finding an okay recipe and making it preferable to my family… and hopefully yours! What would you do differently from mine? Let me know in the comments below, I love your feedback!
