Menu Description:"A Denny's original. Sliced turkey breast with Swiss cheese, bacon and tomato on grilled sourdough. Served with French Fries and pickle chips."

Now you can munch down your own clone of this popular palate pleaser, The Super Bird, a cross between a grilled cheese and a club, and Denny's top-selling sandwich. When shopping for sourdough bread, try to find a high-quality loaf with large slices. The thin-sliced turkey breast is best purchased at your market's deli service counter where they cut it while you wait. If you don't have a service counter like this near you, you can use the prepackaged thin-sliced meats located in the cold deli section. Or you can move.

My 14 year old son luvs the Super Bird sandwich at Denny's and had doubts that I could make one as good... well thanks to you and your site I proved him wrong. MODIFICATIONS: Bread; I use a sliced Sourdough Round which is larger than Denny's - Cheese; I only had Cheddar Cheese at home but my sons both luv cheddar so it was OK - Bacon; 3 slices of Pepper Bacon. My son said it was even better than Denny's! Thanks

I had one at Denny's last week and remembered how much I like this sandwich! It is super easy to make and doesn't need any sauce for flavor. I used muenster cheese and white bread, and substituted ham for the bacon. I guess I like fried turkey sandwiches.
