Correction: one serving is less than 900 calories and 1700mg of sodium, but a full sandwich is four servings.

/yeah, I know they don't deep-fry the whole turkey. But I easily amuse myself.

Give me two and a handful of napkins to cry into afterwards.

1.7 grams is more than a day's worth of salt, but hey, if you only eat at Arby's once a year, you are probably not dead yet.
 
2020-10-28 12:47:12 PM  
Do they deep fry the whole sandwich?
 
2020-10-28 12:48:09 PM  
I'm going to continue my tradition of picking up some smoked turkey from our local BBQ joint instead.

/only need about a pound for me, my wife, and my daughter

Man, I'm getting Arby's for lunch today and I'd bet that they don't have these in Canada

I like the screen name. I have 244 Cornelius in my family tree, but no Dribbles yet. I should check for Dibbles.
 
2020-10-28 12:50:46 PM  
Dibbles? Oh, yeah. I have 36 of those. Some surprisingly close. Some are Dibblees, of course, which also amuses me. No Dibbleys though.

For what it's worth, you amused us also. Sorry I can give but 1 funny.

Dang, the cranberry one sounds delicious, but if they're gonna truly make it American, they need to dip that bad boy in beer batter, deep fry the whole thing, and serve it with maple syrup dipping sauce. Go big or go home!

Deep fried?  I'd think about a whole one, even though I'd have to freeze a lot of it.

There's a guy on my drive home who runs a little grocery store in a town too small for a stop light at its main intersection.  On days when the weather is good, he is out front of the store grilling stuff for sale on his firepit. Prices are good and food is great (Despite being in SC, its more akin to Kansas style BBQ, which I like better), cooked slow for hours.  I swing by about once a week or so and pick something up for dinner.

He's offered to grill a turkey for us for Thanksgiving this year, which I am absolutely going to take him up on.

I am guessing no because the commercial never said so.

Do it. Your family will love you for it. Trust me on this. My wife & kids got me a Treager for Fathers day a few years ago. Grilled/Smoked turkey is required now for Thanksgiving. I think I would be disowned by all 4 of them if I didnt fix 1.

I've had it before. It's decent.

What I miss was the Thanksgiving pizza a shop in Toledo had. Turkey, stuffing, cranberry, some potatoes, brown gravy instead of sauce, mozzarella cheese.

Sounds terrible but is actually incredibly good. I'd get it once a year, devour the whole pizza (got a small just to restrict myself a little) then call it good on food for the day.

They're really good. Me and my cousin worked at the place that made them. They would let us taste test them every now and then.

These actually look and sound tasty. Too bad we don' have an Arbys in my town or I might have picked up a couple.

We normally do a buffet at an upscale restaurant. Looking for something new this year.

brantgoose: 1.7 grams is more than a day's worth of salt, but hey, if you only eat at Arby's once a year, you are probably not dead yet.


Science says five grams is fine.

Weird how dietary guidelines that someone pulled out a crunchy sock keep getting overturned by actual science.

The flaw with those is that they attempt to apply one standard to a diverse population.  Ethnic groups with a predominance of genes that make them retain salt shouldn't have the same standard as ethnic groups without a predominance of those genes.

In the Before Times, my in-laws, wife and I would go to the local Chinese buffet for Christmas. Worked really well.

I've recently made some copycat Arby's Beef and Cheddar sandwiches at home and they're damn good.

Seems like the bread and lettuce would really get ruined.

I could go for an authentic Monte Cristo sammich. Used to get them decades ago at a gay bar/restaurant in Milwaukee

Yeah, nothing against buffets in general but "upscale buffet" is pretty much an oxymoron.

The local chura$$$co restaurant is up$$$cale. There is a buffet for everything except the steak or for those who don't want to go into a meat coma

Wait, seriously?   you know there is a buffet in almost every vegas casino, and most casinos right?  u think your local chinese buffet is the same as 'The Buffet at Bellagio'? 
Or the awesome Boma at the Animal Kingdom Lodge in Disney? 

Yes, there are upscale buffets.

You say Boma, my ears perk up. Most expensive dinner I've had in years (except for Morimoto's, which cost us about $150 for 2, after appetizers and dessert) but incredibly good.

Gino's on Monroe, right by Toledo Hospital. Amie's out on Central does similar.

They're usually only seasonal but so good.
