Lava Red Reaper Sauce Review

Heyya Peeps!

If you like hot sauce (and I mean HOT sauce) be sure to check out this review of “Lava Red Reaper Sauce” by my buddy Aaron, over at Aaron’s Food Adventures.

He gives this sauce a 5 out of 5, and if Aaron says it, you can believe it’s not just hot, it’s delicious too!

As Aaron says…Embrace that pain! LOL

I do love me a good turkey sandwich. Lean smoked turkey, some top-notch extra sharp cheddar, double smoked bacon….oh yeah.

Here’s how we do it at my house…

2 slices Dave’s Killer Bread (21 Grain)
4 sliced mesquite smoked turkey breast
2 oz Cabot Extra Sharp Cheddar (about 4 thin slices)
2 thick slices double-smoked apple-wood bacon, warm.
1 Tbs. Just Mayo
Dash or two of Balsamic Vinaigrette

Spread Just Mayo evenly on each slice of bread. Toss greens with vinaigrette.

Stack greens and remaining ingredients on the bread, top with the remaining slice of bread, and slice the sandwich in half.

Serve with a cup of soup, or a small tossed salad.
