Grilled Pimiento Cheese and Fried Green Tomato Sandwich

Fried Green Tomato Sandwich with Pimento Cheese

“Are the green guys in yet?”  “Just checkin’ on the green tomatoes.”  “No green tomatoes yet?”  “Are they here?!?”

I’m fairly certain the fine folks at my favorite farmer’s market are freaked out by my borderline obsession with green tomatoes.

I can’t help it… I love them!

Touchdown Thursdays: Muffaletta

Muffaletta

I don’t believe in sandwiches without mayo, seems unfair to the bread. Unless of course said mayo is replaced by the ridiculous olive spread on this here muffaletta.

Four big games this weekend calls for a serious sandwich, and this is it.  The only word that came to mind when building, and then eating this monster… Obscene!

Sundried Tomato & Goat Cheese Salmon Burgers

Writing this post, I starting thinking that I only bring the polarizing food… pork, sweets, chocolate, comfort food, dairy, beer, fish and the like.  Which brought me to another realization, there’s no such thing as polarizing food, yes, we all have opinions, likes and dislikes, but no matter what, there’s something out there, and on here, for everyone.  Never let anyone tell you that mayonnaise sucks, or that tofu is nasty, if you like it, eat it, and if you don’t – let the others eat their cake!

I am now climbing off my soapbox to bring you super tasty burgers that are great for a quick lunch, or easy dinner.  I couldn’t possibly pack these burgers with any more of my favorite flavors – goat cheese, sun dried tomatoes, basil, cilantro, lime… ahhh!

Touchdown Thursdays – Porter-Braised Pulled Pork Sandwiches with Grilled Cornbread & Horseradish Sauce

Pulled pork is one of those nostalgic dishes that reminds me of the house I grew up in.   Giant batches of my mother’s pulled pork would sit in the freezer until we couldn’t take it anymore, and would devour the lot.

This pulled pork sandwich features… you guessed it, BEER!

Nothing about this recipe is particularly difficult but it is a long process.  Don’t let that dissuade you from tackling this yummy little sandwich.  The processes can actually help you, come game days.  Make the pulled pork a day ahead, along with the sauce, which will keep up to a week in the fridge.  The cornbread could also be made ahead and grilled prior to serving.

Bánh Mì

An odd thing happened when I sat down to write this post… I had no idea what to say.  What do you say about one of the greatest taste experiences on the planet?  Thank God for a world of flavors and cuisines, and thank God for the people who turn us onto them – pretty much all I came up with.

One of the funniest people I know also happens to be our work Bánh Mì fairy.  The first time I enjoyed one of these simple sandwiches, I fell in love.  Simple, beautiful flavors – salty, sweet, spicy, clean… amazing.  Give me bread, meat and cilantro and I’m a happy girl.
