Spicy Jerk Turkey Melts Game Day Food

When the calendar flips to March, college basketball fans are always abuzz. This is the month that brings brackets and important games as the college basketball season winds its way to the championship. It’s a make-or-break time when a single game can be the difference between a Final Four finish and … well, not a Final Four finish. And really, what every team is striving for is to be number one.

Here in Connecticut, the UConn women’s basketball team has shown time and again what it means to be winners — they’ve brought home 8 NCAA championships since 1995 (seven of which have been since 2000).

You can’t escape March Madness here. It seems as though everyone gets into it.

When Boar’s Head approached me about participating in a different kind of March Madness — one that pits game day recipe against game day recipe — I was all in. I mean, we adore game day food, and Boar’s Head is my preferred brand for deli meats. So it’s a perfect match.

For this, I was challenged to use the Boar’s Head Brand® Bold® line of deli meats, which includes meats, cheeses and a condiment with rich, loud flavors.

My sandwich? Spicy Jerk Turkey Melts. It pairs Boar’s Head Brand Jerk Turkey® Breast and Boar’s Head Brand 3 Pepper Colby Jack® Cheese with tomatoes and avocado for a cheesy, spicy, creamy open-face sandwich on marble rye bread.
