When I was last in Vegas back at the end of 2007 I remember seeing an “Earl of Sandwich – Coming Soon” sign at the Planet Hollywood hotel. I was kinda excited for some reason but I never thought about it again until I walked into the Port St. Lucie Turnpike Plaza (a plaza exists every 40 or so miles on the Florida Turnpike). I stood there for a good while trying to figure out what to get and decided on the Ham ‘n’ Swiss. The sandwich was tightly wrapped and looked almost like a bar of gold.
I opened up my treasure to a nicely toasted sandwich. It looked great and had the Earl’s Mustard sauce all over the inner top and bottom bread. I liked the mustard but I found the sandwich to be something I could re-create at home. Not that it was bad but I wouldn’t exactly be running here to have another one of these.
Next time I stop at this plaza I’d go for the “The Original 1762″ (Roast Beef, Cheddar Cheese & Creamy Horseradish Sauce) or “The Full Montagu” (Roast Beef, Turkey, Aged Swiss & Sharp Cheddar Cheese, Lettuce, Roma Tomatoes & the Earl’s Mustard Sauce) and their triple chocolate brownie. And maybe one of their salads, just kidding.
