Friday Special Sandwich, Millburn Deli in NJ
Tue, 11/9/10 12:27 PM
Anyone have a similar sandwich? Best known for perfecting the north Jersey sloppy joe sandwich, as long as I can remember they've sold a Friday Special. As a German not Jewish based deli, they catered to Catholics needing a meatless sandwich on Fridays. The construction is so-a cut to order thin slice of Pechters rye, their home made tuna salad, a slice of lettuce, a schmear of their famous Russian dressing. Another slice of rye, their home made egg salad, another slice of lettuce, more Russian, and topped with another slice of rye. Cut into thirds, with the center piece sliced to have a point shape.
Still a classic!
