Sandwich of the Week: Organic Sandwich Company’s Turkey and Bacon Jam
The Organic Sandwich Company is the latest gastronomical delight to make an appearance on the busy Pearl Street Mall in Boulder, Colorado.
Owner Macy Miller grew up in Michigan and always remembered her mother making a homemade dinner for her family of six. After quitting her job in wealth management, she entered into the restaurant world offering people clean, organic farm-to-table food.
Originally located in the popular Boulder Farmers Market, demand grew and in January 2015, the Organic Sandwich Company was born.
Sourcing her ingredients from local suppliers ensures that about 90 percent of her products are organic. Business has been brisk since opening her doors, with hungry locals and tourists enjoying fresh sandwiches designed for carnivorous, vegan, gluten-free and paleo diets.
Selections includes turkey and brie, soppresata and white Cheddar cheese, grass fed roast beef, beet almond feta, caprese, chickpea and avocado, and spicy veggie. Other items include fresh squeezed lemonade, soups, and gelato cookie sandwiches.
When asked about the most popular menu item, Miller is quick to exclaim, “Turkey and bacon jam!” This condiment is so popular, in fact, that one loyal customer said she wished she could “bathe in it.”
Indeed the jam is Miller’s family recipe of bacon, caramelized onions, apple cider vinegar, garlic, and black coffee. The last ingredient may seem odd at first, but she insists that it gives the jam a smoky, deep rich flavor.
To create this top seller, Miller combines roasted turkey, bacon jam, avocado tomato, romaine lettuce, and mustard aioli on a pretzel loaf. The sweetness of the onions along with the layering of other flavors has resulted in a simple, non-conformist sandwich with a loyal following and many new converts.
