TODAY's Al Roker, along with Steve Jayson, the corporate executive chef at Universal Parks & Resorts, is sharing a delicious new update to the menu at the TODAY Cafe at the Universal Orlando Resort. To welcome spring, diners at the cafe will now be able to enjoy Al's low-carb muffaletta sandwich.
During the 3rd hour of TODAY, Natalie Morales joins Al in the TODAY Cafe kitchen for a savoy slider cook-off.
Universal Orlando Resort is part of our parent company, NBCUniversal.
I love the rich, meaty flavor and tangy olive and veggie topping of a classic muffaletta sandwich. To cut down on the carbs, Al likes to make it on a cauliflower-based flatbread. You get all of the flavor with fewer calories — it's a win all around!
The crunchy slaw, sweet caramelized onions and spicy slider sauce make these tiny turkey burgers absolutely irresistible.
An homage to Al's mother-in-law, this sandwich is like taking a bite right out of the South. The sweet barbecue sauce complements the smoky grilled chicken, while the crunchy fried onions and crisp lettuce are perfect with the tender, flaky biscuits.
