Recipe: Turkey Sandwich With Pepper Jack And Barbecue Chips

Give your turkey sandwich a kick in the pants

This September, embrace the upgrade with us: Make your eating and drinking better, faster and stronger.

This recipe was inspired by my mother, who deprived me of a normal childhood. While my upbringing wasn't quite like an Augusten Burroughs book, I certainly didn't have normal school lunches. Sandwiches were swapped out for kuku and baby carrots, and Fruit Roll-Ups were replaced with fresh herbs and lavashak (a Persian fruit roll-up).

What I wanted was a simple sandwich-one with turkey and lettuce and tomatoes and maybe some chips inside. What the cool kids were eating.
