BAKED HAM & SWISS SLIDERS

I wish I could tell you where I saw this recipe, but I can’t.  I did adapt it slightly, but it really makes the perfect football food – quick, easy and tasty.

BAKED HAM & SWISS SLIDERS
12 pack of KING’S Hawaiian rolls
4 slices thick ham, quartered (to fit on rolls)
4 large slices Swiss cheese, quartered (to fit on rolls)
1/3 cup butter
2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon onion powder

  • Slice rolls in half and layer pan with bottom halves.*
  • Place a slice of ham and Swiss cheese on each roll.
  • Put the tops on.
  • In a small saucepan melt the butter.
  • Add the Worcestershire sauce and seasonings and blend well.
  • Brush the tops of each roll.
  • Cover with foil and refrigerate over night.
  • Preheat oven to 375°.
  • Bake 15-20 minutes.
  • Serve immediately!  They are best hot.

As an added bonus they are really good as a “club” adding turkey as well to the ham.

*Original recipe called for using a 9×13 pan.  I used my lasagna pan and it worked out very well.

FRENCH ONION GRILLED CHEESE

FRENCH ONION GRILLED CHEESE
1 tablespoon each safflower oil and butter, for frying

2 slices of french baguette or french bread
1 tablespoon softened butter
enough shredded
gruyere cheese to generously cover both slices of bread

½ cup wine-braised onions (see recipe below)
salt and pepper to taste

  • Heat oil in frying pan over medium low heat. Add butter and allow to melt.
  • Spread each slice of French bread with softened butter. 
  • Add half the shredded cheese to one slice of bread
  • Pile braised onions on top
  • Sprinkle with the salt and pepper, then add the rest of the cheese. 
  • Top with the other slice of bread, and gently press together.
  • Place the sandwich in the hot pan and cook until bread is toasted brown and cheese has started to melt. 
  • Carefully flip the sandwich over in the pan and cook until the other side is toasted brown and cheese has completely melted.
  • Remove the grilled sandwich from the pan and serve.

WINE BRAISED ONIONS
1 clove garlic per
2 onions
 (cook about 3-5 at a time, as you will find many uses for leftover caramelized onions)
butter
beef stock

  • Cut the onions in half lengthwise, then slice thinly again lengthwise.
  • For every 1 large onion, heat about 1 teaspoon safflower oil in a large, heavy-bottom pan over medium heat. Add the same amount of butter, allow to melt, then add minced garlic. 
  • Allow the garlic to soften (but not color), then add the onions. 
  • Stir to coat the garlic and onions in oil+butter.
  • Turn down the heat to medium low (so onions don’t burn). Continue to cook the onions until they are soft and deep golden brown, 30-40 minutes (depending on how many onions you cook).
  • Add about 1/8 cup wine of choice and 1/8 cup beef stock, and allow to cook down with the onions, another 5-7 minutes. 
  • Remove from heat and set aside enough onions for grilled cheese sandwich.

    CROQUE PASTRAMI

    In my opinion the key to a good sandwich is all in the layering.  Make sure that your layers are complimentary to each other. I put the cheese on the bottom so it melts better.
    I’ve made my version of Croque Madames before, but today with it snowing like a banshee I am making a new version with what I have on hand and calling it :

    CROQUE PASTRAMI
    per person
    2 slices bread
    2 large slices pastrami
    1 slice Havarti
    2 thin slices red onion
    1 1/2 tablespoons of French Island
    1 fried egg, basted

    • Make a basted egg.
    • Saute the onions until slightly caramelized.
    • Layer a slice of cheese followed by pastrami pieces to fit the size of the cheese on the first slice of bread.
    • Spread the French Island evenly on top.
    • Layer onions in the dressing and top with the fried egg.
    • Gently break the yolk.
    • Top with remaining piece of bread and grill until toasted.

    BLT Chicken Sandwiches with Rosemary Mayo – Fire Day Friday

    I can’t say it’s the best looking sandwich I have ever made, but what I can say is that it’s one of the best tasting ones I’ve had in a long time.  I guess you truly can’t go wrong with bacon and cheese, though, can you?
    This is a fun way to jazz up a chicken sandwich or a BLT – however you look at it, you will not be sorry if you do make it!
    Don’t feel like grilling?  No worries, bake or pan sear the chicken, it will still be good.  Heck, use chicken tenders instead of breasts – it doesn’t matter, cause it will still be good 🙂
    BLT Chicken Sandwiches with Rosemary Mayo
    Adapted from Bon Appetit

    Printable Recipe 
    Ingredients:
    2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
    olive oil
    garlic salt and pepper
    6 slices bacon, cooked crisp
    1 roma tomato, thinly sliced (I actually used cherry tomatoes because I had them on hand and they worked just fine)
    lettuce
    melty cheese – I used a jalapeno pub cheese – or you can skip the cheese all together
    2 hoagie buns or sandwiches rolls of your choice
    For the mayo:
    1/4 cup mayonnaise
    1-2 teaspoons freshly minced rosemary leaves
    1 Tablespoon lemon juice

    Directions:
    Mix all the ingredients together for the mayo, until well combined.  Cover and refrigerate until ready to use.

    Preheat grill to 375 degrees F.  Rub olive oil on both sides of each piece of chicken.  Season with garlic salt and pepper (or whatever spice mixture you prefer).  Place directly over the fire and grill about 8-10 minutes per side or until the chicken is cooked through.  Remove from grill and let rest for 5 minutes.

    Build your sandwich however you like, but I slathered mayo on the top and bottom bun – placed the chicken first, added the cheese, topped with bacon, tomato and lettuce – dinner is served!  Enjoy!
