“We offer this sandwich monthly and it sells out almost every time,” says Executive Chef Cameron Clegg. “Like [Pittsburgh’s] three rivers we have incorporated three rings of ‘fire’—smoky tomato mayo, smoked turkey breast and our locally sourced smoked Gouda cheese.
I love using a panini press or a flattop griddle for this.”
