When I was growing up, I had this thing with my mom where she would wake up around midnight, wake me up, sneak in the kitchen and eat a sandwich. This was undoubtedly quite unhealthy, since she had a weakness for fat-sandwiches… No, I don’t mean ‘sandwiches that are fattening’, I mean literally bread with fat and salt on it. If you have good fat, like duck fat, this can be quite delicious. In any case, I shed the habit many years ago. Last week however I was working late and got hungry and I know my mom would approve; I went and made a sandwich. Thanks mom for all the fun midnight sandwiches and good chats.
- Half a pita bread
- 1/2 oz Gorgonzola cheese
- 4 tbs roasted tomatoes
- 3 tsp Italian salsa verde
Since it’s midnight and you’re hungry, you better have prepared the roasted tomatoes and the salsa verde earlier in the day.
Rip a pita bread in half and spread the cheese across it, the tomatoes, and finally the salsa verde. Toast in a toaster oven for a few minutes until the cheese melts, but before the pita becomes impossibly crunchy.
Note on the photos we are using a hardy full wheat pita bread.
