I don’t usually remake recipes since all of my attempts turn out exactly perfect the first time and require no changes whatsoever. But the Krusty the Clown Sandwich needed a redo because I disliked my first sandwich and certain people tried to prove that THEY could make a better sandwich and it turned into a whole thing. Oy.
But first, a little information on Jewish deli foods. Obviously the major joke of the Izzy’s Deli Krusty the Clown Sandwich is that all the meat is a pork product. And, as the Rappin’ Rabbis say: “Don’t eat pork / Not even with a fork / Can’t touch this!” This sandwich is almost the inverse of the the more traditional types of sandwich fillings you would find in the real life Izzy’s Deli.
Corned Beef = Springfield Izzy Ham
Roast Beef = Springfield Izzy Sausage
Pastrami = Springfield Izzy Bacon
Mustard = Springfield Izzy Mayonnaise
Rye Bread = Springfield Izzy White Bread
Note: ingredients vary depending on Sandwich 1 or Sandwich 2.
- Genoa Salami
- White Bread
- Ham Sausage
- Mayonnaise / Mustard
- Portuguese Bun
- Complimentary Pickles (optional)
Spread mayonnaise and/or mustard on bread or bun. Assemble meat in an organized fashion. Consume and appreciate this wonderful, magical animal.
The picture below really tells a story. That is one sad looking sandwich. It tasted great but looked terrible, so I had to try again…
This looks better! Yes, it includes mustard but, quite frankly, all meat related sandwiches should include mustard. To me Sandwich 2 looks more like something you would actually order and eat at a deli. This recipe was worth it alone based on the amount of bacon I got to eat. Sorry Rappin’ Rabbis.
