I posted about this a while back but want to show you again. This is Peppered Turkey Breast which is delicious as-is but frying adds a new dimension to the flavor of this meat, and I recommend toasting the bread just before the meat is done. Adding coconut oil to the pan helps brown the meat nicely. The sunshine will actually make an appearance today but with a high temperature only in the low 50s. It was just 36F early this morning. Yuck. Holy smokes, can we have the desert heat back now? Here’s the meat. 😂

Sadly, processed meat is off the menu here but, thankfully, we live in a fishing port and so plenty of fresh fish instead…
Looks good! Never even thought of it!
Hi Susanne, thanks. I just made another one with a couple of changes, delicious as far as this forever a bachelor is concerned!
I had never thought of frying lunch meat, but why not? It adds variety to a sometimes monotonous lunch menu. Looks really good too.
I just made another one for lunch, added cheese and four slices, delicious!
This is delicious, John 🙂 I fry lunch meat but I have never used coconut oil. I will definitely follow your advice!
That’s good, I’m not the only one! I made another one for lunch today, delicious with cheese and four slices of meat. ❤️
We sometimes use a Panini grill to do our sandwiches but we also have fried sandwich meat too
I’ve never tried a grill like that but they seem to do a fine job. I have to drive a few extra miles to find real sandwich shops around here.
My husband and I really like the soup and sandwich shops, we have several in our area!
That’s wonderful! There are tons of them here but none are close to my home. The closest are a yummy sub shop, a McDeath, , Booger King and KFC. 😂
My parents used to fry lunch meat all for us when we were kids (it was usually a breakfast treat, with toasts and eggs!) I haven’t had it in years, so thanks for bringing up the memories!
Aww, you are welcome, Vanessa! That sounds delicious, I think I will make another fried sandwich for lunch today! I should make more food posts, everyone seems to like that better! 😂❤️
That does look good
It is, Derrick, try it yourself. My sandwich meat is sliced rather thin but thicker slices should work too of course. A bit of mayo on the meat when done and add some butter to the bread, yum! I guess this is a bachelor’s meal. 😂
Indeed. I’ll remember it when I am next on my own
Give it a go, Derrick. I live by myself so I am the chef of the home. 👍🏻😬
I can’t say that I ever have fried lunch meat, John, but I tend to eat food that is very, very simple and or made from scratch. A tin of sardines works for me. Open can, insert fork. 🙂
Sardines? I have never tried them because of how they look and what I hear about the taste. I’m a picky eater! The meat really does have an enhanced flavor. Oh, and I love to eat tuna straight from the can!
Some are less fishy than others. Look for the sardines that are called “Tiny Tots”. The cans are in a yellow wrap with dancing people on them. I love those, but I go for the cheaper ones in the discount grocery, “Seasons” brand in olive oil, for $2 a can. Those aren’t bad.
Wow, you really know your sardines, Lavinia! If I try a can I will let you know. ☺️
Chock full of good things including protein, calcium and omega-3s, they are a heart-friendly food.
My cardiologist would approve. ☺️
