The Big Bad Wolf Burger

Sometimes a man needs to be a man, and that’s when he makes “The Big Bad Wolf Burger“. Oh yeah, 1/2 pound of patty with basil, cilantro, oven roasted garlic and blue cheese chunks. What a great 4th of July celebration that was. Inspired by the moment, I topped it off with crispy hash browns and a jackfruit/avocado rough guacamole. I can’t even begin to tell you how good this burger is, but this is so far the best burger I’ve had in my life. The jackfruit guacamole sweetness perfectly blends with the spicy mayo, the juicy patty, and the crunchy hash browns. These are the times when I think back to all the missed opportunities of my childhood to celebrate with awesome burgers, the food of men 😉

Potato Sandwich With Corned Beef Coleslaw, Spinach And Lemon, Dubliner Cheese And Garlic Ciabatta

After making our Costco Sandwiches (of which one is part of the March 2010 Costco Connection magazine), we still had some leftover corned beef coleslaw… And as the saying goes, “Naked Women Learn To Make Sandwiches and Trade for Clothes,” so we whipped up this little beaut. We love potato sandwiches, and we find that adding the cheese below the tomato changes the way the flavors hit the mouth when you bite into the sandwich. You are not immediately overwhelmed with cheese, but rather you have a chance to taste the potato before the coleslaw and cheese takes over. The pumpkin seeds in the coleslaw are fantastic by the way, and we’ve started to add pumpkin seeds to several of our sandwiches and pizzas with great success.

Potatoes Au Gratin

Potatoes Au Gratin Recipe

  • 1 pound of potatoes
  • 1/2 onion, cut into slices
  • 2 minced garlic cloves
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 2 tsp smoked paprika
  • 1 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • Optionally: Add 3 tsp butter, spread out on top before baking.

Slice the potatoes into 1/4 inch thick slices. Lay them out in a casserole. Mix everything else together and pour over the potatoes. If the cheese stays on top then mix it in. Place casserole in the middle of a pre-heated oven at 400 degrees for 45 minutes. If the potatoes starts getting burned, turn oven down to 450, and cover with aluminum foil. Leave them an additional 10 minutes in that case. We have  a very bad oven, we know.

Potato Sandwich With Mayonnaise, Italian Salsa Verde, Fried Onion And Grape Tomato

One of the best things you can do with potatoes is to make potato sandwiches. Simply boil the potatoes, let them cool, and get creative. Since potatoes a very subtle taste, this is a great opportunity to bring out your best toppings. A really good mayonnaise always complements potatoes  nicely, and the fried onions brings a little crunch to the party. This is a classic Danish open faced sandwich (in Denmark they call it Smørrebrød), which any kid that goes to school can tell you.

Mashed Potato Sandwich on Ciabatta with Ham, Fried Onions, Pickles, Flax Seeds and Dukkah

For some, if not most, the concept of having a mashed potato sandwich may seem disturbing. However, if you find yourself wondering whether you are loosing your mind, you probably have never tasted one. They are delicious! So overcome your inhibitions, and make a mashed potato sandwich next time you have a little leftover. For this one I felt like adding flax seeds and ham. Since I want the ‘crunch’, I toasted half a ciabatta roll, and added fried onions on top for good measure. For a little hint of sourness, sweet dill pickles always does the trick, and a sprinkled of my newfound love, Dukkah, seals the deal.

Potato Sandwich with Remoulade, Pumpkin Seeds, Roasted Garlic and Tomatoes

I love potatoes and I love bread. This sandwich brings out the best in both of them. Half a ciabatta roll, toasted (for the ‘crunch’) and with a light spread of tarragon mustard. Add potato, pumpkin seeds, tomatoes and a few more things you can read about below, and you got yourself a treat for lunch. Yes, it’s as good as it looks!

I made this after a long day at work, one of those days where you really just want to get home and sleep, but you’re starving… Having a potato handy in the fridge from dinner the night before became my saving grace.

“Flakfortet” – Smoked Cream Cheese Potato Sandwich

I know, I know.. you’re thinking “Potato sandwhich! More starch as a topping for bread?”. That was my first impression when I first heard of this one. However, as with all things culinary, the adventurous are often generously rewarded.  This adaptation was inspired while on a sailing trip to the Danish island “Flakfortet” (hence the name of the sandwich).  It was constructed from what was available on the boat, and it turned out to be a passenger favorite. The subtle taste of the Smoked Cream Cheese (A Danish delicacy from Fyn), blends perfectly with the potato and radishes.

Spanish Omelette Sandwich

While this is really more of an omelette than a sandwich, it still has the basic makings of a classic. The Spanish omelette includes fried potatoes, onions and eggs, and is prepared in a pan in the oven. Topped with tomato sauce, fresh greens and air-dried Spanish ham, it is absolutely delicious by itself. However, put it on bread, and you have a sandwich from heaven (or Spain).
