Ye Regular Olde Burger: Beef Patty, Spinach, Baby Cucumber, Tomato, Mustard And Basil Dressing On A Pandesal Roll

OK, you have a point. This is perhaps not quite amazing enough to be on “amazing sandwiches”… But we liked it. This is a simple, plain garden variety burger, and sometimes that’s all you need to bring you back from a long day at work doing the man’s bidding. Yes, you know what we mean; cubicle work!

Sandwich Recipe: “The Grey Lady” – Truffle Pâté On Dark Rye Bread With Ducks Fat, Roasted Garlic And Topped With Onions and Olive Oil

The most common sandwich in Denmark is probably the liver pâté Sandwich. Every school kid knows it, and often hates it due to the sometimes bare-bones minimum effort put into making it. This sandwich here we call “The Grey Lady”, and it’s a play on the traditional liver pâté ‘blah’ version – A serious upgrade if you will. It is not the most attractive sandwich, but it taste awesome.  One last upgrade we could still add is using goose liver pate, but we couldn’t find any locally so that will have to wait.

Cardamom Crisp Roll with Rembrandt Extra Aged Gouda, Raspberry Sauce and Rajma Masala

It was one of those day were we just wanted a simple snack. Luckilly we had some leftover raspberry sauce from our Christmas panna cotta desert (which was fantastic), so with a good cheese, some cardamom crisps, and a crazy idea of adding a touch of India, we came up with this. We really liked the pairings, the rajma masala brought out a little extra zing from the cardamom, almost making it stronger.

Pizza Tomato Sauce

You need pizza sauce to make pizza, and this is a simple and good recipe for making your own homemade pizzas.

Pizza Sauce Recipe

  • 2 cans of skinned tomatoes
  • 1 tbs fennel seeds
  • 2 tsp sugar
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 1/2 tsp curry
  • optionally: 1 tsp rajma masala

Heat all the ingredients in a pot, stirring until boiling. Turn the heat down, and let it simmer for half an hour simmering on low. If it is too wet to add to a pizza, either remove the extra liquid, or add a teaspoon of corn starch and stir it in, leaving it simmering until the liquid becomes thicker.

Seared Ahi Tuna Sandwich with Roasted Garlic Mayonnaise and Lettuce, Asian Pear, and Avocado on a Pandesal Roll

Since his birthday lunch of seared tuna at Blue Water Seafood Market and Grill, Anders has been dreaming about making a tuna sandwich.  But the price of fresh tuna and our relative inexperience with cooking it has served as  a big deterrence.  You don’t want to ruin a $14/lb tuna steak!  Anyway, this weekend he could not be stopped. We finally succumbed and  bought a ginormous ahi tuna steak at Costco. This was one fantastic looking steak – probably big enough for 4-5 tuna rolls.  So the plan was to sear the tuna, and, borrowing inspiration from Blue Water Seafood, serve it on a soft bun, rather than the artesan-style breads and rolls we typically use. 

With a game plan in mind, the search was on for an acceptable roll. Anders just happened to be shopping at Lucky Supermarket – one of the 6 supermarkets that we just had to visit this weekend to satisfy our finicky grocery needs – when he happened upon: Pandesal rolls. Slightly sweet Filipino bread rolls which are very soft. Getting home with the unexpected find, it was time for the searing. A quick Google search, and a plan were laid to do one steak with sesame seeds, and one with a spice rub. From this point on we basically improvised the recipes below based on the content of our pantry, and the rest was… well see for yourselves.

Grilled Teriyaki Chicken Cheese Sandwich with Squash, Onion and Fennel Seeds

We love grilling on the BBQ, and we love sandwiches (obviously), so this sandwich was bound to come about sooner or later. Neither of us has done a lot of grilling growing up, so we’re discovering the joy of barbecuing together. We frequently use chicken, and have learned (after a few… mishaps) to get it moist and tender. Grilling chicken usually involves a marinade or a rub, since chicken by itself can be a bit bland. This particular recipe calls for teriyaki sauce, which is great for marinades.

Spice it up, or keep it mellow. This is our recipe for tuna salad, but every time we make it we change a thing or two.
