Today I was excited to order this sandwich. The #7 is smoked turkey (my favorite), muenster cheese, applewood smoked bacon, lettuce, mayo, and honey mustard on a Zingerman's onion roll.
The name "He Ain't Heavy", comes from the Neil Diamond song. You know how it goes...."He ain't heavy, he's my brother...." The sandwich was a favorite for Mark Hamel's brother, Jonathan, and it was created over 12 years ago. It has been on our menu ever since, and continues to be very popular.
I can see why this sandwich is so popular!! It's one of my new favorites for sure. I love our smoked turkey, and I truly believe it is probably the best turkey deli meat that I have ever had. I've had one of our onion rolls before, and I also really like them. They don't have an overly strong onion flavor, and they are very soft and moist.
The combination of mayo and money mustard on this sandwich is interesting, but it adds a lot of great flavor. Our honey mustard is NOT the common yellow honey mustard that is often found in restaurants. It's golden in color, and sweet, but also has a spicy kick to it. I'm not a fan of really spicy food, but I love the honey mustard on this sandwich.
I really like the combination of all the ingredients on this sandwich, everything comes together perfectly, including the bacon...which I am beginning to enjoy the more I have it. I would suggest this sandwich to anyone, it is officially one of my favorites now!
