After making Parmesan crisps a few days ago, I had a visions of sandwiches all somehow incorporating the crisps. Well, some turned our better than other, and here we stick to what we think are the amazing ones. This one is with a favorite ingredient, mashed potatoes, topped with a bit of sun dried tomato pesto we threw together (recipe to come), green onions, a few leaves of sweet basil from the garden, and of course the Parmesan to top it off.
By the way, if you have read a lot of our recipes, you’ll notice quite a few are on ‘rustic white bread’. For us, this means homemade bread made from more than 90% white flour. It may have extras, such as olives, cumin seeds, blue cheese, etc, but it’s essentially a white bread. What makes it rustic is that it looks, well, rustic. We’ll post a recipe later, but it’s quite involved and usually takes between 1-3 days to make, including sometimes pate fermente, biga or levain.
This sandwich we have named “Bambi” because she seems to be strutting her stuff all over the place, hoping to get picked up.
- 1 slice rustic white bread
- 4-6 tbs mashed potato
- 2 tbs sun dried tomato pesto
- 1 green onion
- 2 sweet basil leaves
- 1 Parmesan crisp
- Optionally add pepper to taste (we didn’t)
Toast the bread until golden brown. Add the mashed potato, then sun dried tomato. Cut the green onion in small pieces and sprinkled on top. Place the two basil leaves on that, and finally stick in the Parmesan crisp, so that once more, Bambi can show of her assets.
