gourmet style sandwich de la casa

Posted on December 17th, 2011  |  6 Comments

Why spend upwards of $8 on a gourmet sandwich when you can make one yourself?

Oh you can’t cook? Well making a sandwich ain’t cooking, its assembling, and if you can use a computer, and know what a blog is, then you can make yo self a sandwich. So get to it.

Tips for making gourmet sandwiches:

*Toast bread or use a Panini Press (extra fancy gourmet)

*Layer it in: I used nitrate free turkey and crunchy prosciutto (baked at 400 degrees in toaster oven until crisp ~ 5 mins) with spicy lettuce, shallots and cheese. I also love veggies like thinly sliced carrots, cucumbers and bell peppers cause they add a refreshing crunch.

*Sauce both sides: Honey Dijon mustard and tapenade work great by adding boat loads of flavor; try your favorite salad dressing as a sub for mayo, or use hummus or jam if you’re feeling a little crazy, be sure to get both slices.

Let it fall out: In my opinion you can’t put too much on a sammy. (had to say it!) I love pickles and chips with every bite.

How do you sandwich?

    That was awesome! This is how I sandwich…

    Thick slices of crusty white bread (country or French)
    Vermont Cheddar
    Thin cooked bacon
    Thin Granny Smith apple slices
    W/strait from the dairy salted butter on a press.


    Same bread/butter with…
    Hot Wing sauce (from the Dollar Tree, no joke its the best)
    Thin sliced red onions
    Avocado slices

  2. Your sandwich looks exactly like the one of my dreams!
    My perfect sandwich starts with hearty, delicious, grainy bread with brown or dijon mustard and is filled with tons of veggies and some sort of protein. And if it’s too big to take a bite from and I need to use a knife and fork- that’s even better.

      Love it- Fork and knife sandwiches are the best! I also enjoy a nice mustard/Italian dipping sauce on the side but that’s going a bit over the top. :)
