Midnight Sandwich: Oven Roasted Tomatoes, Cheese, and Italian Salsa Verde On Pita Bread

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.

Roquefort Cheese Sandwich with Creamy Tarragon Garlic Spread, Lettuce, Tomato, and Roasted Tomatoes on Potato Bread

Blame it on my Danish upbringing, but I can’t walk away from a good cheese, and this sandwich sports one of our favorites: Roquefort.  For those not in the know (but care to be), it’s like a mild blue cheese, soft and tangy, and usually crumbles easily (although this one didn’t). We bought it at Costco (which means we have a family sized block for the two off us). Since it is a ‘Product of France’, European law dictates that only those cheeses aged in the natural Combalou caves of Roquefort-sur-Soulzon may be called Roquefort. Similarly, Feta cheese may rightfully be called Feta if and only if  it’s from Greece. We always find it interesting to know where our foods really come from, and this is one of those rare occasions where we have a clue.

The sandwich itself is simple, lettuce, tomato, roasted tomatoes, Roquefort and a wonderful creamy garlic paste with tarragon from Majestic Garlic which we got at the Temecula’s farmers market. You need to get this spread it’s fantastic on sandwiches, eggs, pasta and so much more!
