This isn't an attempt to outshine the original beef Patty Melt, but it is pretty gosh-darn awesome with its crisp pork patty and caramelized fennel and onions. More

Sandwiched: Grilled Cheese with Sautéed Mushrooms

Sandwiched María del Mar Sacasa Post a comment

Grilled cheese sandwiches need little improvement. From the basic Wonder bread and American cheese combo to ritzier versions, the combination of buttery, toasted-until-golden bread gushing with warm melted cheese is synonymous with comfort. Nevertheless, adding some sautéed mushrooms and shallots never hurt. More

Sandwiched María del Mar Sacasa 2 comments

BLTs are one of my top restaurant orders: toasted bread, ripe tomatoes, refreshing iceberg lettuce, a slather of mayo, and a layer of crisp, greasy bacon. It can't be messed up, but of course, it can get a few alterations—like candied bacon and tomato jam! More

The sandwich loaf is basically a cake, except it's made with a whole bread loaf and savory fillings. This one includes egg salad with cured black olives, butter and crisp, peppery radishes, smoked salmon with crème fraîche, capers, and dill. It's like three sandwiches in one. More

Sandwiched: Lamb and Orange-Herb Gremolata

Sandwiched María del Mar Sacasa Post a comment

Heady, rather pungent lamb is paired with a bright gremolata made up of finely grated orange zest, fresh oregano, thyme, rosemary, and a generous amount of garlic. What turns out to be a swanky sandwich also includes a kick of spicy mustard and slivers of nutty, sharp sheep's milk cheese. More

Sandwiched: Deviled Ham Salad

Sandwiched María del Mar Sacasa 11 comments

Is deviled ham as reviled a potted meat as SPAM? These compacted canned meats, high in sodium and shelf stabilizers, may be the stuff of hurricane warning survival supplies, and let's admit it, they're looked down on for being rather unsophisticated. But for me, they are part of the scrapbook of memories of trips to the beach and my grandfather's farm. More

María del Mar Sacasa 2 comments

Today the ritual is unheard of—who has the time for teatime? Certainly not me, but the notion is extremely enticing. I made these sandwiches because it was turning bright green outside and I'll have company over for Easter brunch next week; it felt like perfect timing for something light and elegant. More
