Day #59, #28 Ron's Lifesaver

I was so excited to blog about this sandwich because it has been my favorite since I started here at the Laundry. I remember the first time I ordered this sandwich I thought, "Pesto and Mayo? That's an odd combination." However, after the many times I've had this sandwich, I think it's a great combination.

This sandwich is named after a past employee named Ron Neely. If you are familiar with our breakfast menu, it is the same Ron that the Ron and Deb's Weekender is named after. He used to work the cash register on the weekends. He also used to work for Bob and Tom when they owned the party store in town and was a wiz on the register (which was important because it was a really old machine). Ron was always chronically sick and this was the sandwich that he ordered all the time. It was a lifesaver!

This sandwich is made with smoked turkey, cheddar cheese, mayonnaise, Italian pesto, sweet red onion, tomato, and lettuce on grilled Zingerman's french farm bread.

It's by far my favorite sandwich on the menu. I usually order it without onions, but this time I ventured to try it with the onions, and still liked it just as much. It's a great sandwich for someone who will eat anything, or a picky eater. I'm also a huge fan of our smoked turkey, and I always tell customers that I think it is the best smoked turkey that I have ever had, and I really eat a lot of turkey!

I would suggest giving this sandwich a try. If you do, let me know what you think. I'm sure the Ron's Lifesaver will not be a disappointment!


  1. This is my favorite too!

  2. This one is quite tasty. I enjoy it but I have quite a few I prefer over it. I would consider this a phenomenal sandwich anywhere else but as far as the foods that I hunger for depending on my mood... others fill it's niche unless I am bored of them.
