Cooking for the Toothless, Part 2

One of the things I miss most about having teeth is eating those open-faced roast beef and roast turkey sandwiches that constitute one of the classic offerings at truck stops across the US. So, here's an item that I call "Open-Meat Sandwich Sans Meat".

About This Recipe

Active time:10 mins
Total time:2 mins
Special equipment:1 plate, 1 bowl, 1 mug, 1 knife, 1 spoon


3 slices fresh Italian bread or toasted ordinary white bread

1/2 tbsp room-temperature butter

1/2 can beef, turkey, or chicken gravy


If you're using Italian bread, cut off the crust.

Spread the butter liberally over the bread, then cut the buttered bread slices into bite-sized squares, and place in bowl.

Put gravy in mug, and heat in microwave until hot.

Pour gravy over bread pieces, and serve.
