May 13, 2010 | By andrea | 7 Comments | Filed in: Beef, Recipes, Sandwich.

I’m always looking for new and interesting sandwich recipes so I was intrigued when I saw this twist on a roast beef sandwich. There’s lots of flavor going on here: sweet red peppers, tangy feta cheese, earthy cumin and cilantro, and a lemony tahini dressing. For the bread, I used a pre-cut loaf of ciabatta bread • Read More »

February 9, 2010 | By andrea | Comments Off on Steak Sandwich with Chimichurri Mayo | Filed in: Beef, Recipes, Sandwich.

Here’s a hearty sandwich that will make a meat-lover happy! However, my favorite part was the Chimichurri Mayo, a delicious combination of chopped parsley, red onion, garlic, red wine vinegar and mayonnaise. Yumm! I pretty much followed the recipe except for substituting red onions for the shallot in the chimi mayo. To slice the cooked steak, • Read More »

Roast Beef and Two-Chile Grilled Cheese on Onion Rolls

August 7, 2009 | By andrea | Comments Off on Roast Beef and Two-Chile Grilled Cheese on Onion Rolls | Filed in: Quick Cooking, Recipes, Sandwich.

I love this spicy, southwestern-inspired sandwich!  The toasted onion rolls are a creative foundation for the sandwich, while the chipotle mayonnaise adds heat and tons of flavor. I slathered a little chipotle mayo on the cut side of each bun half and used only 2 slices of cheese per sandwich, one on the bottom bun and one on • Read More »

Chicken Spiedies

June 16, 2009 | By andrea | 1 Comment | Filed in: Chicken, Grilling/BBQ, Quick Cooking, Recipes, Sandwich.

Oh my, these are good sandwiches! Basically, Spiedies (pronounced speedies) are marinated and grilled chicken served in a sandwich roll with a drizzle of lemony-garlicky sauce. Now I know they don’t look like much but they are really delicious and a cinch to make! The chicken is flavorful but it’s the sauce that makes the sandwich. Toasting the • Read More »

Turkey Wraps with Chipotle Mayonnaise

June 12, 2009 | By andrea | 3 Comments | Filed in: Recipes, Sandwich, Turkey.

It only takes a little extra effort to turn a sandwich from boring to great. Such is the case with these turkey wraps. A simple chipotle mayonnaise is a cinch to make and is flavored with lime, cilantro, and you guessed it, chipotle peppers. The chipotle adds a wonderful slightly smokey flavor and just a bit of heat to the sandwich.  I • Read More »

Salami, Fontina and Roasted Bell Pepper Panini

May 11, 2009 | By andrea | Comments Off on Salami, Fontina and Roasted Bell Pepper Panini | Filed in: Quick Cooking, Recipes, Sandwich.

I made this panini for lunch recently. Basically, a panini is just a glorified grilled cheese sandwich filled with any combination of cheeses, meats, and/or vegetables…crunchy on the outside, oozing with melted cheese on the inside. Yumm! Paninis are usually made with a panini press (electric or stove-top) but I say you can still make these • Read More »

Curried Chicken Salad Sandwiches

April 10, 2009 | By andrea | 3 Comments | Filed in: Chicken, Salad.

Curried chicken salad is simple to make and packs a ton of flavor in every bite. This recipe calls for “commercial chutney” which is pretty vague. I always use a Major Grey’s chutney, a  type of mango chutney (not a brand) that is slightly sweet and spicy. You should be able to find it at most major grocery stores.  Trader • Read More »
