November 3rd is National Sandwich Day!
I don’t know about you, but I eat sandwiches all the time (I’m probably eating one as you read this). So, I thought I should celebrate this very important day in our nation’s history with TWO sandwiches.
Double-fisting sammies. Heck yeah.
The first sandwich recipe was inspired by the delicious mozzarella appetizer I had before the Marine Corps Marathon. You don’t need a lot of ingredients to make an amazing dish.
The simplicity of good cheese, a fresh tomato and quality balsamic is enough.
Make sure you get fancy mozzarella and balsamic or Ina will frown upon your sandwich.
BMT – Basil, Mozzarella and Tomato Sandwich Recipe
Fresh mozzarella cheese (a lot because you’ll eat some of it while making this)
Few basil leaves
2 pieces of Oroweat bread
Salt and Pepper to taste
Some way to grill it up
Directions: Pile up the BMT ingredients (basil, mozz, tomato) on the bread. Season with S&P and balsamic. Grill. Eat. (I used my Foreman grill, but the usual way works.)
Now it’s time for dessert!
I created this cannoli inspired sandwich as a post-sandwich treat.
Melted Chocolate Cannoli Sandwich Recipe
2 Tb. whipped cream cheese
1 Tb mini chocolate chips
1 sugar packet of your choice
1 tsp. powdered sugar
1/4 tsp vanilla extract
1 sandwich thin
Directions: Combine cream cheese, chocolate chips, vanilla extract and sugar. Spread onto one side of the sandwich thin. Smash. Grill. Dust with powdered sugar.
Question: What’s your FAVORITE SANDWICH?
I like tuna or fancy chicken salad with tons of grapes and cranberries and cashews.
