Crab Cake Sandwich With Focaccia Bread

For the past few weeks I have been berating Anders that he has abandoned his sandwich making craft. Berating is a bit strong – more like a strongly nudging.  He has been focusing on taking photos while I make the sandwiches.  This week, he heard me and made this tasty sandwich that proves even more than his passport and birth certificate, that he is indeed from the land where smorrebrod was born.  It was one of those evenings when I just got home from work and crashed with no thought as to dinner. I was in the middle of one of those marathon phone conversations with one of my girlfriends when Anders came through the door, smiled and nodded in my direction and headed to the kitchen.   He was a man on a mission.  15 minutes later, his mission became clear. He returned to the living room with this dinner sandwich that was so good to look at that I felt guilty eating it.  Not too guilty though.  Costco membership that made purchasing the crabcakes possible: $60/year and worth every penny and more.  Having a husband with smorrebrod making in his DNA: priceless!

Sandwich Review: Ralph’s Sausalito Turkey Sandwich.

This is another of my favorite sandwiches from Ralphs, and for $5.99 it’s hard to beat the value. The Sausalito turkey sandwich on ciabatta is excellent, obviously very filling, and freshly made, and no, Ralph’s is not paying us to write this. However, Mr. Ralph, if you read this, we would accept gift cards for more sandwiches 😉 This is not only a very filling sandwich, it also taste excellent, and for the price  this is a 4 star lunch meal.

Turkey Sandwich with Creamy Garlic Paste, Avocado, Red Bell Pepper and Onion on Lingonberry Bread

Lingonberries are small red slightly sour berries that are famous throughout Scandinavia. Lingonberry bread, as the one we have here, is a mix we got at the local Ikea. It is a dark bread, almost rye, with a minimal amount of lingonberries (We found 3), and decent if you’re in a rush (and for just a couple bucks, it’s very well priced). However, we won’t be trying it again, at least not without some augmentation. This sandwich was made on our first lingonberry bread ever, fresh out of the oven (and that’s always good). Sliced turkey from the local deli, creamy garlic paste from the local farmer’s market and fresh avocado and red bell peppers makes up this little adventure. The creamy garlic paste we found is amazing on sandwiches, and we highly recommend it. It’s from ‘The Majestic Garlic”.

Meatball Sandwich with Grilled Veggies, Fire Roasted Salsa, Mozzarella Cheese, Roasted Garlic, Cilantro, Green Pepper, Roasted Tomatoes

Living in San Diego means being influenced by Mexican cooking. Each street corner seems to sport a Mexican fast-food joint. Our cooking regularly employs cilantro and salsa, bothView Post of which can be tasty new ingredients to familiar meals. In this sandwich, we use both, and with the French bread, this becomes an international affair. Danish meatballs (frikadeller), Italian mozzarella, cilantro and salsa, made by a Dane and a Jamaican living in the US. It is a small world these days.

Paprika Yogurt Dressing with Red Bell Peppers, Curry, Mustard and Parsley

This is an old favorite of mine, going back to my college years. At my dorm, one of my friends’ dad worked for a large company that delivered meats and groceries for supermarkets. As a result, they were sent huge amounts of samples, which they stored in two large freezers. When he visited the dorm, he filled his car with samples for us all to enjoy. This included giant steaks, fast food pizzas, and meats of all types. So while my life up until then consisted of pizzas and chili, this was a challenge. You can’t just plop a steak in the microwave and eat it, so all we could really do was learn how to cook it right. As a consequence, our ‘kitchen’ began evolving some pretty advanced culinary tastes, and soon started to realize that there is more to life than fast-food pizza, and cooking is not really all that hard. One of the results of that time is this dressing, which we made to accompany a batch of frozen falafel. It’s easy, and complements both the falafel, but also meats very well. We will be using it in a few sandwiches soon to be released.

Cilantro Lime Shrimp Sandwich with Avocado, Cucumber and Bell Pepper

Know your limits… and defy them

Sometimes enough is plenty.. and then there are those days when even plenty is not quite enough.  Anders has a tendency towards sandwich superfluity and I often have to protest when I see the layers that one small slice of bread is expected to support.   I mean, even after visiting sandwich shops in Denmark and witnessing the architectural marvel that is the smorrebrod, I still think there is a limit.  I almost want to offer defense for the poor bread.  This was one of those days when I let him win and… we were both happier for it.
