Sandwiched: Anchovy, Basil, and Tomato Sandwiches with Aioli

Sandwiched Marvin Gapultos 1 comment

Rustic Italian bread slathered with garlic aioli and layered with fresh basil, sliced tomatoes, and a sprinkling of capers all make for a great match with anchovy fillets—almost like a Provencal BLT of sorts with the salty anchovies subbing in for the bacon, and basil in place of the lettuce. More

Sandwiched: Mascarpone, Strawberry, and Basil Grilled Cheese Sandwiches

Sandwiched Marvin Gapultos 4 comments

Although it's only March, there's been some great-looking strawberries at my local farmer's market in Los Angeles lately. So after purchasing my first batch of early-season berries, I combined them with some cream and basil in a rather unconventional way—in a grilled cheese sandwich. The cheese in this grilled cheese sandwich is mascarpone—the mild, yet faintly sweet Italian cream cheese—which I spread onto a couple slices of honey wheat bread, followed by a drizzling of honey, some sliced strawberries, and some thin ribbons of fresh basil.

Sandwiched: Crispy Curry Catfish Sandwich with Chili-Lime Slaw

Sandwiched Marvin Gapultos 1 comment

For me, Lenten season means fried fish sandwich season. And while I do enjoy the occasional Friday fillets from various fast food joints, the homemade version can take on any number of flavors besides just one doused in tartar sauce. This one is a catfish po' boy of sorts, but rather than using cajun or creole seasonings, I went with fish sauce and curry for a Thai-inspired po' boy. More

Sandwiched Marvin Gapultos 1 comment

Tapenade is often served as a dip or spread but also makes for a great replacement for mayonnaise and mustard in a sandwich. For this sandwich, the rich homemade tapenade is spread into an herby focaccia roll, followed by some spicy salami, peppery arugula, a roasted red bell pepper, and a sprinkling of crumbled goat cheese.

Although the ingredients in this sandwich are all very strongly flavored, each remains distinct with every bite. More

Sandwiched: Canned Sardine Banh Mi

Sandwiched Marvin Gapultos 2 comments

Sardine banh mis are usually made with canned sardines packed in a spicy tomato sauce. The rich, meaty flavor of sardines along with the spice and tang from the tomato sauce can lift a baguette in ways that other fillings can't. And since canned sardines are used, this particular type of Vietnamese sandwich is a cinch to make at home. More

Here's a way to incorporate the tomato soup into the sandwich. The grilled sharp white cheddar cheese sandwich is studded with sun-dried tomatoes, and spread with harissa, a spicy Tunisian condiment of various red peppers. More

Serious Eats Marvin Gapultos Post a comment

A grilled cheese sandwich made with sharp white cheddar cheese is given new life with new flavors when studded with sun-dried tomatoes, and spread with spicy Harissa. And instead of using butter to brown and crisp this sandwich, brush the bread with the olive oil in which the sun-dried tomatoes are packed for an additional hit of tomato essence. More

Open-Face Cheeseburger Sub

Part cheesesteak, part meatloaf, part cheeseburger, the elusive cheeseburger sub is likely a staple in more than one college town. This version is cooked on homemade ciabatta garlic bread, which gets soaked through with juices from the meat during cooking. More

New Orleans-Style Barbecue Shrimp Po' Boy

Serious Eats Suzanne Lehrer 2 comments

In the Big Easy, BBQ shrimp means simmering in garlicky butter sauce with Worcestershire, hot sauce and rosemary. Remoulade with homemade mayonnaise is just about as quick as opening a jar of pre-made tartar sauce--and approximately 100 times more delicious. More

Elvis was onto something with his love of peanut butter, bacon and banana sandwiches. Bacony buttermilk waffles serve as salty bookends for caramelized bananas in a maple-peanut butter sauce. The King would be proud. More
