Winnie native Vance McDonald comes home to his own food creation


San Francisco 49ers tight end Vance McDonald is considered a hometown hero in Winnie - so much so that he has his own dish at a local eatery.

"You toast the bun, make sure you lay out all your cheese on your bread to get it to melt, spread," McDonald tells KFDM News. "I did a mayonnaise ranch mix. I got my lettuce. I diced it really small. In the meantime, you can put your four meats ahead - ham, turkey, bacon and roast beef - on the griddle, warming up and getting nice and seared. And then, put it all together. It makes a very nice sandwich.

"I think we called it officially the 49er. It's got four meats, so that's we're going to call it."
