I love sandwiches that get lots of toppings thrown on them. This particular sandwich is called the Junkyard Special and I love that name. It's a copycat from a place called Sarcone's Deli in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. It contains two types of meat (prosciutto and turkey), two types of cheese (provolone and mozzarella), plus spinach, roasted red peppers, and basil. Provolone is by far my favorite sandwich cheese and I typically eat turkey sandwiches, so this sandwich was really up my alley. It just had a few extra goodies on it. The roasted red peppers and melty, gooey mozzarella really added to this sandwich so well. I loved the sweetness and juiciness of the peppers with all the other more savory flavors. The mozzarella just married everything together and made it feel more hearty. This is definitely a sandwich you will want to make and if you don't share with a friend, I don't blame you!
