"Smart Snacks in School will make the healthy choice, the easy choice, for more than 50 million American children." says Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack on Jun. 27, 2013. Secretary Vilsack announced that under the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s (USDA) new “Smart Snacks in School” nutrition standards, America’s students will be offered healthier food options during the school day.

Turkey Club on Toasted Baguette

Smoked turkey, bacon, tomato, greens, on baguette, with chipotle mayo on the side – with salad or homefries (.50).

Going for the second choice (first was the breakfast burrito), this hearty lunchtime sandwich was a grand mountain of delicious and fresh flavours. Nicely cooked (neither too crispy nor soggy) bacon was piled on top of fresh sliced tomatoes and smoky lean deli turkey. I liked how mixed baby greens were incorporated into the sandwich, providing some pepper bites, some soft crunch, and pretty vibrant greens. The baguette was slightly toasted, having a hearty crunchy crust, and a large spongy crumb. If it were a perfect world, the baguette might have had a smear of grainy mustard, and be made with sourdough, but that’s just me being picky. I was just as content with the kick provide by the chipotle mayo and that of the chili oil spiked rosemary roasted poatoes. Delish!

I don’t think I have to say much about the plating. You can see for yourself. Compared to many other Toronto breakfast joints (particularly those that are overpriced in downtown), I was floored by the simple elegance on the plates presented by Easy’s kitchen. Two thumbs up (that’s if you have free hands to give a thumbs up – mine were too busy holding on to my scrumptious food).
