Looks tasty. Personally I would have used the salt and pepper on the tomatoes...
The tomatoes were directly salted. The ground pepper went onto the oiled bread. There’s some on each piece of the ciabatta, so half is hidden by the muenster and tomatoes.

When it was assembled, each bite delivered both seasonings pretty well.

I’m learning to love ciabatta.

Had a couple mini ciabatta rolls; made twin mini sandwiches for dinner. Together, they were about the size of a decent hoagie.

Sliced them open & toasted them. Bottom got hit with basil-infused olive oil, butter and black pepper. Top got basil-infused olive oil, red wine vinegar and black pepper.

Fillings: Munster cheese, Genoa salami, Black Forest ham, prosciutto and iceberg lettuce.

Somewhere in the middle are brown mustard and Lebanese garlic spread.

Served with garlic-stuffed olives.

Looks great. I find ciabatta a bit dry and cheque but slices of it make great garlic/herb bread.

It is a bit dry, but with...five condiments, that wasn’t really an issue.

A lot of sub shops I’ve been to will have a spiced oil & vinegar mix that they use on a lot of their sandwiches. Sometimes, they’ll have a few. Or they won’t mix them, they‘ll just have a selection of them as optional toppings. And a dry bread- especially if toasted- can absorb a LOT of those flavored liquids.

Yeah I'm using a generous amount on ciabatta.

It's decent for an open sandwich using it for a base.

Grilled cheese sandwich.

Shredded chicken, pickle, cheese, sweet chilli sauce on southern oat bread.

Not half bad. More cheese next time.

Sandwich Experiment!


Over the past year or so, I’ve seen several cooking shows mentioning sandwiches made with greens- usually but not always collards- from a variety of culinary traditions in the south, like the Lumbee Tribe and the Gullah. So I looked up a bunch of variants and tried a little experiment with the leftover greens I had made for Thanksgiving.

Some of the collard green sandwiches were made with fatback, pork belly or bacon. Some had a fried egg or cheese. Most were made with some form of that staple of southern cuisine, cornbread. The most common cornbread type was a “hoecake”- cornbread cooked in the form of a pancake.

Mine was mustard greens (made with smoked turkey), some glazed ham, a couple slices of American cheese, and a baked egg (essentially identical to an over medium fried egg) on buttered sourdough.

The result was a messy but very tasty sandwich. I’m pretty sure it would also work substituting smoked/fried turkey or chicken.

And as good as the sourdough was, I’m certain that using cornbread “hoecakes” would kick it up a notch or three.
