(Note: This recipe is not my own. This recipe came from a small country market I used to work at called Maulers’ market. This market no longer exists but I wanted to keep the memories of it alive by sharing this recipe.)
 
Right after I graduated high school I got a job at a local country market. I had some of the best times of my life at that little store. I loved the people I worked with and the customer relationships I made. It was always fun to make those personal connections with our customers. To this day I still remember what some of the regulars would order. One customer used to call in and order a hoagie and say, “Put everything but the kitchen sink on it!.” Man, I miss those days!
I couldn’t make a career out of working at this market for many reasons, but I do keep these fun memories alive by making some of the specials from time to time. One of my favorite specials, which I didn’t realize how much I loved until recently, was the Lillian. The Lilian consisted of a thick slice of turkey, bacon, and all your favorite sandwich toppings smashed in between a grilled deli bun.
I’m sure by now you are wondering why this sandwich is called the Lillian. Well, because this sandwich was named after one of the employees named Lil. I absolutely adored Lil! She was just as sweet as she was spunky, kind of like this sandwich. She always had a smile on her face and was always so fun to work with. Did I mention that I miss those days?

Instructions
  1. Drizzle frying pan with olive oil. Allow pan to get hot over a medium high heat. Once hot, add turkey fry until bottom is brown ( this doesn't take long!). Flip the turkey and cut in half using a spatula. Add 2 slices of cheese to one of the turkey halves. Flip the other turkey halve brown side on top the cheese. Keep flipping until both sides of the turkey are browned. Set aside. Add butter to frying pan and toast buns. Assemble sandwich by adding mayo, bacon, lettuce, tomato, and onion.
