eat all the smith & deli sandwiches – #29 – back to the beginning – home alone
Here it is, day 29 and I’ve eaten all the sandwiches that I wanted to try. There was one day left to post a sandwich before the wrap up tomorrow, so I decided to go back to where it all began – the Home Alone.
I’ve never actually eaten the real Home Alone sandwich, because on the frenzy of opening day back in June, they’d run out of rolls and seitan turkey. I had my original one on turkish bread with chicken salad. I have that one scored as 11/10 – putting it at the top of my list of sandwiches.
So in the interests of science I ate the REAL Home Alone. The real sandwich ingredients are seitan turkey, stuffing, roasted brussels sprouts, cranberry sauce, mashed potato and gravy on a roll.
I am happy to report that it almost lives up to the first one I ate. I probably prefer the first one by a half a point, but that’s being picky. It is possible that I just remember it more fondly because it was my first love.
In any case, there is a nice symmetry that my first and last sandwiches are both the same and the Home Alone, in either guise, still remains my favourite. I am going to score it the same.
As someone commented, it is like Christmas Dinner in a sandwich.

I just wanted to say how I have loved your sandwich reviews of Smith & Deli and allowing us to live vicariously through you. I have absolutely loved your honesty and your passion for food. I haven’t made comments in the past but wanted to say thank you for the past 29 days, I have looked forward to your email arriving in my inbox and reading what you have to say. I’ve been to Smith & Deli twice and both times purchased the vanilla slice. I’m looking forward to trying some of those sandwiches now. Once again thanks so very much
I have had a fun time doing it all, but I have to say I’m glad to get back to some salads! Glad you enjoyed the reviews. 🙂
I want to say thank you too, Rosalie! I was the person who said hi while you were buying this sandwich and I’m sad to see it over too, but I’ve loved all the posts. Thanks a bunch. (And I adored my sandwich too, even when I got cranberry sauce on my stockings.)
Glad you enjoyed that sandwich. I loved mine all over again too. Bad luck about the cranberry. I am half sad and half pleased it is over. 🙂
I’ve really enjoyed your Mofo theme 😀 I’m inspired to try some of the sandwiches I have put towards the bottom of my must-try list. I feel like you need a theme song on the final day!
Yes thanks for the suggestion! 🙂 I am a bit over bread at the moment which is very weird for me. I’ve been eating salad.
Thank you so much for taking on this challenge, which has helped me narrow down what sandwich I will have in my limited time in Melbourne next week. Home Alone wins it (though Hail Seitan is a second choice if I have time and room… I know your thoughts on that one.. hee).
I think you should eat the Abomination that is Hail Seitan! Someone should love it. 🙂
