Hi, littlest baguettes! I wanted to take a second and say thank you – thank you a million times for the reception of the first Dead Dad’s Kitchen. This is a window straight into my heart and I have never been that happy to see so many people staring into my windows.
This week I got to share a simple but very special recipe with my best friend Gabbie Hanna. My dad loves her and I know that you all do, too.
| Italian Sandwiches |
1 French Baguette (or Italian sandwich bread – never cared)
1 bag (or 1/4 cup) mayo
Salty Pep (that’s what Frank called salt and pepper) to taste
~5 slices of each of your favorite Italian meats (prosciutto, cappocollo, salami, etc)
4 fresh mozzarella slices
1/2 cup bruschetta (tomatoes, olive oil, basil, garlic)
1 cup of spring mix (you could use literally any lettuce or veg – you don’t even have to add it, I just like to pretend that I’m the vision of health once a month so I had it in the fridge)
Slather half of a sliced and butterflied baguette with your mayo and pop it on a grill pan or panini press for about 6 minutes.
Take it off, add salt, pepper and your mozzarella. Prettily assemble your selection of meats and place back on the grill pan.
Afix a heavy object on top or have your best friend burn herself a little and push the sandwich down for you.
Once the mozz is melted to your liking, remove from heat and dress with bruschetta and lettuce because hot tomatoes are gross.
Enjoy with someone you love.
Special thanks to Ms. Gabbie Hanna for allowing me to not only use her brand new, beautiful kitchen but to christen it.
