Sweet & Savory

I have a love for mixing sweet and savory when it comes to creating in the kitchen. I remember my first job when I was 16 years old was at a restaurant close to my house as a hostess. We got to taste everything on the menu (and got 50% off all of our meals!) and I quickly became obsessed with the Monte Cristo sandwich. Hot ham and turkey surrounded by flakey sweet pastry dusted with powdered sugar served with a side of strawberry sauce. Talk about heaven on a plate. I also distinctly remember when I learned how loaded with calories that sandwich was, sigh, what a shame that fried food has to be so good! Although it is no Monte Cristo, I've been eating a sweet/savory sandwich for 75% of my lunches for the past 5 years. A toasted cinnamon raisin English muffin topped with fresh Hillshire Farm Naturals smoked turkey breast and honey ham with melted Muenster cheese. Mmm mmm.





I've been Hillshire Farm Natural Lunch Meats and love that I can trust that there are no preservatives, artificial ingredients, or added colors/nitrates which is incredibly important when looking for foods to feed my family. Oh and I am growing a baby and can't be stuffing my belly with anything "fake". The Smoked Turkey Breast tastes like it was just shaved at the deli and the honey ham is deliciously sweet. I like being able to reseal the package without the chance of the meat becoming slimey in a few days and I can get a pound of Hillshire Farms Natural Lunch Meats for less than $4!

Pickup some Hillshire Farm Natural Lunch Meats at your local grocery store and I promise you'll love my random sandwich creation!
