On a similar note, this week’s very first blog posting will be about sandwiches! Have you ever noticed that sandwiches are always on the menu? From your small ma & pop diner alllllll the way to the gourmet restaurants? You can make them as simple, or as extravagant as you want. This week, I decided to explore a couple of those levels!
LEVEL ONE: Pretty
COOKIE CUTTER SANDWICHES
The day I realized that cookie cutters work on sandwiches was a game-changer for packed lunches! I use cookie cutters for a little extra surprise. It’s a fun, easy and pretty tasty weekend activity as well 😉
LEVEL TWO: Impressive
TOMATO & MOZZARELLA PANINI
If you don’t have a panini grill: they’re decently priced, easy to use, and sure do take your culinary skills up a notch! Assemble your sandwich as you normally would—maybe with a little extra mozzarella and spices—and then you use the panini grill to get a nice sear on the bread. For me, the best part about a panini grill is that I can make a restaurant-grade sandwich, but have better control over the ingredients.
LEVEL THREE: Out of My League
OPEN-FACED BRUSHETTA SANDWICHES WITH A BALSAMIC DRIZZLE
Let me disclose that someone like me doesn’t have the attention span to turn out something like this without a few extra sear marks. These are the kind of sandwiches to impress your guests at a cocktail party. The seared bruschetta bread is topped with thinly sliced beats, herbs, and produce, that all comes together with a little melted cheese and a balsamic drizzle. Simple, elegant, and very photogenic!
