Bird on a Bun

The Thanksgiving 365 sandwich with turkey, brie, and cranberry-horseradish chutney at Hannah's Bretzel called my name at lunch yesterday. It's delicious - and seasonal, if turkey has a season.

It got me wondering what other local spots offer the early bird. A quick Google-search revealed a few:

According to Metromix, Jerry's (with West Loop and Wicker Park locations) will have a Thanksgiving-inspired sandwich on the menu from Nov. 24 to 26, with herb-roasted turkey, mushroom and roasted apple stuffing, turkey gravy, basil, fresh mozzarella cheese, cranberry sauce and Cholula hot sauce on your choice of bread.

The Pilgrim is a regular on the menu at Uncle Sammy's in Lincoln Park. It's got turkey, raisin herb stuffing, cranberry sauce and mayo.

The Goddess and Grocer offers the Turkey Twist year-round, which certainly qualifies as Thanksgiving-esque, with its turkey breast, cranberry mayonnaise and caramelized onions. From Nov. 24 to 30, they're also offering the Thanksgiving Sandwich, with roasted turkey, stuffing, lettuce, tomato and cranberry sauce on whole wheat.

Know of any others?

You can try the Sleep burger at Kuma's Corner until the end of November. It's a delicious and juicy turkey burger that has a stuffing patty sitting on top and a layer of cranberry sauce on the bottom. All of this rests on a fluffy pretzel roll and is smothered with turkey gravy. It put me to sleep in about an hour.

Silver Cloud on Damen has a Stuffed Turkey Sandwich year round. It has oven roasted turkey breast, cranberry relish and homemade stuffing served on white bread with mayo.

A Garden Party at Rick Bayless' House

By Judy Wu

I was using Rick Bayless' restroom, I mused, staring up at the ceiling window that was projecting a heavenly beacon of light upon my less-than-angelic duties. I could barely distinguish Rick's faint murmurs through the orange walls, something about how...
